Robin Thicke Says 'Something Else' Came From A Bit of Everything

There's little more than a month to go until SB fave Robin Thicke gives us Something Else to like about R&B music. One of the things we admire most about Thicke is his knack for doing things differently, stepping outside of the current R&B box (thankfully!), most notably with 2006's The Evolution of Robin Thicke. As for the new album, he says he wasn't afraid to take chances, even if, as he put it in a recent interview, "I might sound crazy every once in a while." As for inspiration for the new release, Thicke says he listened more to his changing surroundings this time around, spending time in both Paris and New York while recording to soak up that energy. "You can't say 'oh, I've got to be in the studio at nine o'clock because I
got to write a hit," he says. "It doesn't work like that. When Al Green
wrote "Love and Happiness," he was going through love and happiness." If the first single is any indication of what's to come, I'm sure we'll be happy with his new material. It hits shelves on September 9th. [SR]
