Adam Lambert’s new single and upcoming album are now available on iTunes and they have already topped the sales charts in Finland. “Never Close Our Eyes” is the #1 single, beating out Finnish artists, as well as Jennifer Lopez and Gotye. In addition, Adam’s album Trespassing, although still only available for pre-sale, holds the #1 spot for albums above even Adele and Madonna.
Even though he has topped the Finnish iTunes charts, more sales are needed to make it #1 in other countries, including the US. This morning Adam tweeted that the single and album are on iTunes to raise awareness: “Never Close Our Eyes is now on iTunes! The albums avail for pre-order and previewing!!! Check it!” Given he has more than 1.4 million Twitter followers, this is sure to increase sales and his chart standing in iTunes stores everywhere. In addition to being able to pre-order Trespassing, you can now also hear preview snippets of all songs off the album. So far, fan reaction to the snippets has been overwhelmingly positive and people can’t wait to get the full versions of the songs.
Adam Lambert’s Trespassing releases on May 15. If you have not pre-ordered it yet, you can do so in iTunes. Not in the US? No problem, just check out this list compiled by a fan that provides links for countries where Trespassing is available on iTunes. Be sure to also buy “Never Close Our Eyes” at the same time. Hopefully enough people will buy it and pre-order Trespassing in various countries to make it top the iTunes charts all around the world!
