This year marks the 12th anniversary of the release of Adam Lambert’s debut album ‘For Your Entertainment’, which arrived in 2009 only months after the singer came second on season 8 of ‘American Idol’.

Originally featured on ‘For Your Entertainment’, ‘Strut’ has long been a favourite of mine from Lambert. The squelchy electro-pop stomper was co-written by Lambert with Kara DioGuardi and Greg Wells, with production from Wells. The perfect blend of Lambert’s soaring vocals and contemporary pop, it could have been a huge hit.
