Adam Lambert has no interest in recording new material with Queen.

Said Lambert in a new interview: “People always ask if we want to record together. I’m not sure it makes total sense because it wouldn’t really be Queen, because to me Queen is Freddie [Mercury].”  Lambert went on to clarify: “My favorite thing is collaborating and putting these concerts together and creating onstage — it’s super fulfilling and exciting,” he said. “To present these ideas to these two gentlemen — especially when they like the idea!”

The success of the Oscar-winning biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, and the recent documentary The Show Must Go On: The Queen + Adam Lambert Story seemed to indicate that new material from the longtime collaborators may happen. 

Lambert has a new solo album due out this year, along with two months of touring this summer with Queen.
