Adam Lambert, in his distinct style, comes back with his recent music video for a track entitled ‘Another Lonely Night’. We have known him to be an artistic performer, and his element is very much palpable in the music video directed by another artistic professional, Luke Gilford.
“Gilford leads with the heart and his instinct, and is very passionate about the work that he does. He has an incredible eye for the unique,” he said expressing his admiration for the fashion photographer/director.

There’s story, there’s sass, dancing, singing and other forms of art shown through the movements exhibited in the music video that was shot in sin city, Las Vegas. As conceptualized by Gilford who is known for his artistic taste, the video narrates four characters that are all beautiful outside but still feel empty on the inside.
“The main theme of the video is exploring how many entertainers tend to feel the most connected and alive while they are creating. When the lights turn off and the costumes get put away, many struggle with the feeling of loneliness. I wanted to paint a picture that wasn’t necessarily happy or sad, but showed the entire range in between,” the singer describes.

As if the appreciation from the watching crowd is not enough, performers still get the kick of loneliness after the doors have been closed and they are left on their own.
The video represents the fact that people, no matter how wealthy or beautiful or perfect they appear to be in the superficial world that surrounds them, can get still go through a series of lonely phases in life.
While this is the case, the lyrics themselves can express several meanings, primarily about the yearning for love. Lines “Another day, another lonely night / I would do anything to have you by my side / Another day, another lonely night / Don’t wanna throw away another lonely life,” seem to implore about one’s haunting love that has gotten away.
Another Lonely Night is Lambert’s second single from his third album entitled The Original High. The 33-year old singer has just finished his stint in Rock in Rio, for which he received positive feedback.
