Adam Lambert may have proved a somewhat contentious replacement for Freddie Mercury during his tenure with Queen, but the singer has stepped away from the rockers - at least temporarily - to return to his solo career.

He releases a new album 'The Original High' in June, and has just premiered the video for its lead single 'Ghost Town'.

It's a stylish affair that was directed by well-known music video wizard Hype Williams, the man responsible for videos for 2Pac, Usher, Mariah Carey, Kanye and many, many more.

Lambert joked that he was going for a "Coachella gone goth" vibe.
