Lambert's deal with 19 Entertainment expired this month and The Hollywood Reporter confirms "both sides" have agreed not to sign a new contract.

A rep for former American Idol runner-up says the parties leave “amicably and with the utmost respect for each other,” adding that the choice for Lambert is just part of his “evolution,” which started when he joined Direct Management Group.

Under Entertainment 19 since 2009, Lambert has released two studio albums, as well as collections of live tracks and remixes.

His latest album, "Trespassing," debuted at number-one on the Billboard 200, with sources saying conversations are already underway about a third CD.

Honestly. Get your facts right before publishing. Lambert's still with RCA. It's merely his last contractual tie with the Idol machine--a distribution aspect? Imagine he's happy to be 'free' to create w/o needing Idol approval.

As stated by Dani, he only parted with 19R, not RCA. RCA is his label.

I think you should really check your facts first! But nowadays is there actually someone who does? Anyway, he has NOT parted ways with his record label. He parted ways with 19R, not RCA. He is still signed to RCA just doesn't have 19 in the middle that is all. It is actually a very good thing, and he's already in talks for his next album. Next time you should read about the subject you're reporting on ;)
