Adam Lambert Velvet Side A Live Sessions — Audio Only: "Overglow" & "Closer To You"

Last fall we were treated with videos of all six performances by Adam Lambert of VELVET SIDE A LIVE SESSIONS.  What we were surprised to just discover this week were two audio-only videos of the sessions that had been posted by Adam back in early January: "Overglow" and "Closer To You." 

Given the graphic that accompanies the audio on each video, doesn't it appear as if perhaps there was going to be an album version of the Live Sessions?  Oddly, however, the other four tracks from SIDE A are nowhere to be found in this format on YouTube.  So, it's all a bit of a mystery.

In any case, we're happy to present those two tracks here and, as a bonus, we are reposting the original six on-camera Live Sessions performances — each of which you can watch successively within the playlist video below from Adam's YouTube page.  Enjoy!

I really wish Adam would do more of those casual "live sessions" for the rest of the "Velvet" album ....and then put them ALL out on a CD for us to buy. All those live sessions are magic. Adam is magic....especially LIVE! He/His voice doesn't need fancy clothes and stagings to be spectacular!

Not that the fancy clothes and settings aren't wonderful. NOT knocking them!
Just saying.....Adam is Adam, with or without the frills!

Adam shaved his beard!!

Mi Re La ....thanks for the link....Adam's knocked back his beard down to "stubble" length, I see. I also see the grey/white hairs in it that he complained about on one of his visits with us. Pretty soon he's going to look as distinguished as Bryan and Roger!

Actually, Adam would probably look younger if he was completely clean-shaven. Then he wouldn't have to bother dyeing his beard/mustache at all! Either way, he's gorgeous!

Nanbert , I hope Adam shaved only his beard.
I think it will surprise us with a new loock. Quarantine loock.
For now he has shown us only a small part of face.

I think the hairs that are seen in the beard are blondes not white. I think only a few white hairs have appeared on the temples. This gives the man a special charm

Mi Re La....I agree about the greying at the temples. It does give a man a bit of flair and gravitas. But, knowing Adam, he will probably have none of it... he seems to already be upset that he is getting older! As if 38 was old!!!! He doesn't realize that he's just getting better...and has a LOT of good years ahead of him if he takes care of himself.

I guess Adam doesn't feel like fussing with the beard and having to shave it carefully. As to the "gray," I dunno if it's really gray. Maybe just a bit of his naturally lighter hair. Gray hair appears at all ages. I know he doesn't want to get gray, but as he says, he's going to be dyeing his hair his whole life anyway. No biggie.

He's ageing ( even though he's still very young) like a fine wine !

Angeladam....I'll drink to THAT! LOL
