Out singer Adam Lambert on Monday revealed the cover artwork for his latest studio album The Original High.

Lambert tweeted the cover image to his more than 2.4 million followers.

Ghost Town, the first single from The Original High, will be released Tuesday.

In a recent interview, Lambert described the new album as having "an overall bittersweet feel to it."

"This album was executive produced by Max Martin and Shellback and they helped me keep a very cohesive sound and mood throughout," Lambert said. "Sonically it feels more contemporary than my previous material. It's definitely pop but not bubblegum. We have avoided camp and theatrics and have favoured a darker, more grounded vibe, and at the same time, it will make you dance! Lyrically, it's very very personal, the album has an overall bittersweet feel to it. Vocally, I think it's my most tasteful, sophisticated work to date. With Max's guidance, I approached a lot of it with more restraint than in the past. Instead of being overly specific, most of the songs are more esoteric and so they're open to interpretation. I'm curious to hear about the individual meaning that people find in the songs dependent on their own situation."

Ghost Town's hook "will worm its way into your ears after the first listen," he added.
