Adam Lambert will offer a remixed version of his hit song “Aftermath,” with proceeds from the sale benefiting The Trevor Project, a national organization focused on crisis intervention and suicide prevention among LGBTQ youth.

Lambert is scheduled to perform an acoustic version of the song on FOX’s “American Idol” show on Thursday, with sales of the remix single available on his website after the broadcast.

“In order to fully benefit the Trevor Project, the remix will only be available on my site,” Lambert tweeted last week, also mentioning that it will eventually be available on iTunes as well.

Lambert, who is openly gay, said that “Aftermath,” which originally appeared on his For Your Entertainment album, “was written about finding the courage to be honest with yourself and the people who love you. It’s about facing adversity and taking risks in the name of personal liberation. The song takes on different meanings to different listeners. I hope this song inspires people to be who they truly want to be … And dance!”

The release will mark the first time that “Aftermath” is available as a single in the United States.
