Robin insisted upon serving up glasses of champagne before pressing play because, as he says, his new album is “wine and bubbly music.” As candlelight flooded the studio, Robin ran through a few tracks. Upon first listen I have to say the album sounds great. Robin went into the studio immediately after touring and it shows. His band is really tight and his voice sounds strong. Here are a few notes on the album which Mr. Thicke plans to release in June.
“Magic” is most likely going to be the first single. Robin uses horns, horns and more horns to evoke the magic of a perfect relationship.
“Dream World” was definitely my favorite song. Robin describes his idea of a perfect world where he can drive a big old car and be left alone to drink his wine. It definitely causes you to imagine your own dream world.
“Sidestep”may be the second single. It’s an uptempo record which will definitely make you want to dance.
“Harmony” is a feel good song about a girl who discovers her inner-beauty.
“Mr. Loverman” will definitely be a hit with any lady who wants to envision Mr. Thicke as her loverman.
