Adam Lambert and Hi Fi records are at it again.
The American Idol runner-up issued a new statement responding to the label's announcement that it plans to release a CD by Adam titled On With the Show.
Adam Lambert recorded this material before American Idol.
"Last Friday I was surprised to find out that songs I recorded back in 2005 were being released," Lambert, far from thrilled, said in the statement.
"I was shocked to learn that songwriting demos of songs that I co-wrote and recorded over the past few years may be released in an album."
"Like a rough draft that a writer does before finishing a book, I did not intend my work on these demos to be heard by the public. I was unaware that anyone intended to release these recordings until I heard about it in the press."
"I'm very disappointed by this entire situation."
Adam Lambert wants control over his own music's release.
Hi Fi responded to Adam's statement this morning, saying:
"As we've already outlined, releasing this music was always the plan. That plan was changed by 19 Recordings after Adam won America over with his extraordinary talent."
"It's a shame that his management / record company choose to disavow their client's work and discredit him as a songwriter. As an independent company whose role it is to help put this out, we at Hi Fi think this is an absolute slap in the face."
