Lamberts Debut album "Heart On My Sleeve" was published in the US in October 2014 and reached there the top 30 of the charts.
"When I was given the opportunity to shoot, I went only once in me and thought about my motivations to, so what I really want to say the rest of the world," reports Lambert, if one of the development process of their Debut albums "Heart On My Sleeve" responsive. "So I made a list with my goals." They read as follows: 1. Have fun. 2. make music that is catchy. 3. Something make that positive impact on the world. 4. True to remain. 5. earn money. "Is that okay, so to speak?" She asks. "Finally, I want my mother eventually buy a house I want to establish a Foundation that pays the costs of the mentally ill I want to give waitresses serving my brunch 100 dollar tip But now let's be honest.. I wanted to be a pop Write album, which very much emotional depth has, is peppered with interesting figures of speech and text, but at the same time accessible and catchy, "says Lambert. "The songs should sound straightforward, unfiltered and honest, but you should be able to run on the radio anyway. I even call 'Heart On My Sleeve' Therefore like as a pop album that has a conscience. "
The album-texts come from Lamberts spring, the Music they wrote as co-author along with their producer Eric Rosse and Benny Cassette and the songwriter MoZella. "Heart On My Sleeve" draws an honest picture of the point at which the singer from Seattle stands today: "Last year was clearly the best of my life, but this does not mean that it would have there been no obstacles, no heartache and no lessons, I would have to learn, "says Lambert. "In general, I can just about things write I really experienced. And what I experienced? I have signed a contract with a major label. I've been through a separation. I have learned to be truly independent. I was terribly honest , have really shared traumatic experiences with many people. I met the woman of my dreams. I was non-stop touring, far away from the people I love, but I had the chance to perform in front of hundreds of thousands of people and songs about the singing gay rights. this album revolves around precisely this love to those feelings, and it is also about the way that you have to cover to get there. "
"It is a statement that I do as an artist, but it's just a statement that I just want to do as a human being," she says. "A large part of my life I have had the feeling of being very small and absolutely meaningless, and if you can make an album on which one may say exactly what you always wanted to say, this is a feeling, extending not believe can in words fOr me is therefore the time has come where I must not let myself be treated like a doormat on which I feel sometimes strong and hopefully can inspire other people -. and in a loose, uninhibited manner. They are trained to have fun and at the same time feel something which is actually already the essence of the whole album, I think. "
In order to perform this balancing act, reports Lambert with songs like "Be With Me" from their own experiences; It was written just as she met her new partner: "This encounter made me just totally blown away," she says. "You can love not control, but I just knew immediately that my life from that moment to take a new direction would I suffer from bipolar disorder, which is why I asked myself the same course. 'Swinging the pendulum just to the other side? Does this happen here just Ever really? Or have I taken my medicine is not right? ' "she admits, laughing then. "So Far Away" deals with the problems that brings a long-distance relationship with him, "but the song works on several levels," she says. "Even if it hurts sometimes quite beautiful, I know it, the thing is worth ultimately." And then there is on the album even a cover from Rick Springfield classic "Jessie's Girl", the Lambert transformed into a bleak piano ballad and gives him a surprising turn when suddenly a woman by another woman singing ...
"Heart On My Sleeve" is wrapped in dim light love song whose title Lambert Finally, also made the album title, because she had the feeling that this piece best expresses their approach as a writer to the point: "I'm always incredibly open and unbiased gone through life, so I was always hurt me but also often and have intense love. and I've had so much good feelings, because I've let myself in again to other people. This does not mean that I suffered no wounds, but could have only those who know real pain, which can also be really happy . I have some really difficult periods lived through, had to process traumatic things, and therefore I can now also insanely intense feelings of happiness. "
define your central mission Lambert with their first single "Secrets", a musical plea for more vulnerability. About a massive, borne by handclaps pop tune she sings about how she has accepted after years himself and now needs no more secrets: "They tell us from the time we're young / To hide the things we do not like about ourselves / Inside ourselves / I'm not the only one / Who spent so long Attempting to be someone else / Well I'm over it / I do not care if the world knows what my secrets are ". reached the title No. 1 on the US dance charts.
"I had the impression that lately many songs were written, the act or fact to get rid of beauty ideals of self-determination, and I also wanted to write a piece that goes in this direction, the whole thing in my words, from my perspective lit, "she says about the single. "That to make everything sound harmoniously and to tell all, they should not hesitate to accept yourself and love, have been the would be too easy, because the problem is so much deeper and take a look in our society so much shame, so much guilt and I believe that many people can not really live their lives for just this reason. Each of us has its sites, its problems. Everyone was eventually hurt me, so why do not we just talk about it ?! I believe that honesty and courage to show his vulnerable side, change the whole world could. So I eyes on myself, to do it in the hope that others feel inspired by it also. Yes, that's my dirty clothes, I wash in this song, but it feels like the real incredibly liberating. when I notice today that to me again a piece of bagel has fallen into the bra, it bothers no if I just eat it up the crumbs. "
The humor that just resonates in their texts as their answers will help, of course also in making their partially serious concern easier rezipierbar.

But experienced with 19 Lambert a key moment when they Spoken Word Poetry fOr be discovered: "I was three days full manic mood, had properly taken violently Party and all the time slept a minute," she comes in.

"I am often asked by previous career highlights, and frankly, I always feel really confirmed if me some fan at a meet Greet hugs - and then no longer want to let go, because he or she has successfully gone through a whole-like fight like me. Something means great deal to me, the fact that a stranger was able to draw so much strength from my music. Although I'm not the reason why these people create their coming out or their eating disorders overcome, but if I can be a catalyst, the other helps to discover something in yourself and change that makes me overjoyed. And so I deny my living - that is simply amazing. "
