Robin Thicke 'Excited And Nervous' About Album Release
Blurred Lines singer on mixing up his musical style and keeping success in perspective…

He’s responsible for one of the biggest songs of the summer, so it’s understandable Robin Thicke was feeling “excited” and “nervous” ahead of the release of his brand new album!
The Blurred Lines singer, whose track has proved a smash hit thanks in large part to its much-talked-about video, told MTV News US this week:
"One minute I'm very excited, the next I'm terribly nervous. Anytime you release your music or you put something out there that you care very deeply about, you know, you're always a little scared.
“But for the most part, I'm always excited to give people my new music."
The singer’s Blurred Lines LP was released in the UK on July 15 and sailed straight into the number one spot in the official album chart.
Robin said of his latest work: “I never try to be just one thing, or do one thing. I always try to mix up all different styles of music."
“So I think sometimes people get surprised, like, 'Oh, this doesn't sound like that last song.' Well, this doesn't sound like the next song. So I think it's the good, and bad, that you can get something very fresh and never know what's coming next on my albums."
The huge success of Blurred Lines, which features appearances by Pharrell and rapper T.I., comes six albums into Thicke’s long career - so the 36-year-old insists it’s important to keep some perspective despite the runaway hit.
He added: "It's so hard 'cause I've been making music for so long and people say, 'How does it feel?' and I'm like, 'It feels great.' But, you know, I guess after you've had this many ups and downs, it's hard not to have perspective on it."
"I always try and remind my fellow peers [that] if you sell 10 million records that means 300 million people didn't buy it, so a little perspective is in order."
