Adam Lambert's highly anticipated new album may be coming sooner than Glamberts think. The singer confirmed that the LP will drop in early 2012.

"As of now, album will be released in the spring," the 'American Idol' alum tweeted in response to a fan's inquiry, adding, "Feb/march?"

That question mark has undoubtedly left fans hanging, but they can take solace in the fact that they'll be hearing new music soon. According to the singer, the first single from his forthcoming record will arrive next month.

"Seems as though the single will explode in November," Lambert wrote on Twitter. "I'm sorry for the delay- but trust me, it's worth it. The song HAS to be perfect!"

The 29-year-old recently tweeted lyrics to two new songs, and said the overall feeling of his sophomore disc won't be like his debut. “This album is different in that [it] has a more serious tone,” he told Us Weekly. “This album has a thread of honesty in it that is real and personal.” A release date has not yet been set for the star’s currently untitled new project.

The as-yet-untitled new album follows 2009's 'For Your Entertainment,' which produced three singles for the singer in the U.S., including 'For Your Entertainment,' 'Whataya Want from Me' and 'If I Had You.'
