Music superstar Adam Lambert says he was inspired to write "Outlaws of Love," one of standout tracks on his new album, Trespassing, by the struggle for marriage equality.
"I wrote 'Outlaws of Love' to lament the LGBT community's struggle for equal rights and acceptance," the singer tells The Advocate. "It saddens me to think that we find ourselves essentially 'outlawed' in certain communities because of our basic human desire for companionship. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, however. I am thrilled that President Obama had the guts to speak out — even in an election year — for the traditional American values of justice and equality for all. It's a bold step in the right direction."
Trespassing, the follow-up to Lambert's hit debut album, For Your Entertainment, will be released Tuesday. Listen to "Outlaws of Love" below.
