The singer will release his second studio album Trespassing in the US on May 15 and the UK on July 2.
Talking about the new material's influences, Lambert told the Daily Star: "It can't hurt me that the '90s are becoming trendy again.
"I went there because that's what inherently locked into my musical subconscious, as it's what I grew up with.
"This album borrows so much from my first pop influences. I was listening to George Michael, Michael Jackson, Queen – I know Queen aren't '90s, but that's when I got into them – and house music.
"There's a lot of house's darker atmospheres in the album too."
Speaking about his new single 'Never Close Our Eyes', the star revealed that the track is slightly more dance-oriented than its writer - Bruno Mars - is used to working with.
"'Never Close Our Eyes' is a great dance song. It's a little bit more dance than Bruno usually goes, so it'll be a fun surprise for people."
Lambert's 'Never Close Our Eyes' will be officially released in the UK on June 24.
