Adam Lambert’s third studio album, The Original High, is less than a year old, but the pop star is already back with a new single. “Welcome To The Show” will be released on Thursday (Mar. 17) as his first post-Original High piece of material.

Also on Thursday, Lambert will return to American Idol to deliver the debut performance of the song. Lambert, of course, was the competition’s runner-up in 2009.

“I wanted to surprise my fans with a new, uplifting anthem for the spring,” Lambert says in a press statement. “I asked Max Martin for help and he paired me up with two great writers and producers; Ali Payami, who worked with me on 'Ghost Town,' and Swedish star Laleh who is also a featured vocalist on the track. I feel this song will give people strength to be exactly who they are."
