The R'n'B crooner calls his upcoming sixth album after its first single, made infamous by its racy music video.
Still reeling from the notorious success of its lead single, "Lost Without You" hitmaker Robin Thicke has apparently decided on naming his forthcoming sixth studio album "Blurred Lines" as well. The 36-year-old R'n'B singer recently gave a promotional interview on U.K. radio station Kiss FM to talk about his follow-up to 2011's "Love After War" and other things besides it.
Aside from revealing that the album would be released in July, Thicke also went on to divulge that it would feature production from brilliant record producers will.i.am, Timbaland and Dr. Luke. He also gave props to will.iam, saying how he had this "amazing ability to create hit records that everybody in the world loves and dances to" but socially "he's a weirdo."
As expected, Thicke was asked about his controversial "Blurred Lines" music video, the one with nude models strutting around with him and his two collaborators, Pharrell Williams and T.I.. Thicke gave all the credit for the newfound notoriety the clip has earned to its director Diane Martel, whose idea it was to have the models shed their clothes, in contrast to Thicke's idea of having a humorous, Benny Hill-type of visuals.
Thicke also talked about his actress-wife Paula Patton, calling her his "creative partner and best friend" and acknowledging her support and ideas on his work. Thicke also gamely answered trivial questions, naming Sheryl Crow as one of three of the hottest women for him, and Alicia Keys as someone who would make a great replacement for either Mariah Carey or Nicki Minaj who were both leaving "American Idol" after just one season of being judges.
