Lambert said that his new single “New Eyes” from his upcoming album Velvet was inspired by his new boyfriend Javi Costa Polo.
“This guy makes me feel romantic, and I wanted to sing a pretty song about love,” Lambert said, adding that they met on Instagram.
“We were texting for a while, and then we went on a proper date,” he said. “And it was lovely. It was just a good vibe right from the jump, and it felt instant.”
Lambert also described Velvet as “not a big superstar, name-ringing kind of situation.”
“It’s friends, people that I’ve met over the last 10 years that I respect,” he said. “A lot of queer writers as well that I’ve teamed up with, more female writers than ever.”
