Adam Lambert to have song on the "2012" movie soundtrack

American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert will have a song for the soundtrack of what promises to be the biggest movie of the fall, "2012."

The news was broken by a high-profile admirer, Brian May, guitarist for the rock band Queen. Adam met May for the first time when he performed with Queen during American Idol's Season 8 finale.

"I was privileged to hear a track that the guys have finished for Adam Lambert ... a song for a forthcoming film, 2012. I have to say I was completely blown away ... it's truly sensational. In fact it's so obviously a number one smash, any bookie would be mad to take bets on it. I am not kidding. I'm not easily moved to jelly by male vocalists ... but Adam's voice reaches out with sensitivity, depth, maturity, and awesome range and power which will make jaws drop all around the world. Its an awesome performance. No doubt about it. The world of Rock has a bright new star," May said on his blog,

The top secret song was recorded by rock producer Rob Cavallo for the sci-fi disaster flick directed by Roland Emmerich, who also directed "Independence Day" and "The Day After Tomorrow." "2012" is set for release on November 13, so Adam fans should be on the lookout for the soundtrack in October. The official website describes the movie as follows,

"Never before has a date in history been so significant to so many cultures, so many religions, scientists, and governments. '2012' is an epic adventure about a global cataclysm that brings and end to the world and tells of the heroic struggle of the survivors."

Lambert had been saying for a few weeks that he had recorded a song for a movie soundtrack, but had refused to give details. May says he heard the song while visiting Cavallo at his Calabasas, California home where Cavallo is working on tracks for Adam Lambert and on a new Meatloaf album.
