Robin Thicke says he has "hope" that estranged wife Paula Patton likes his new album "Paula."
"These songs poured out of me over the course of two weeks, the whole album pretty much," Thicke told "Good Morning America" today. "When I was looking through some of our old wedding photos and our sentimental stuff, I saw the pictures of the kids at our wedding and I thought it might be nice to recreate a wedding through the eyes of the 8-year-olds."
Thicke and Patton were "childhood sweethearts" who announced in February that they had decided to separate after almost a decade of marriage.
The "Blurred Lines" singer, 37, just released an entire album dedicated to his muse in continued efforts to win her back, along with multiple concert dedications to Patton.
"She’s the best person I ever met so I thought the least I could do would be to devote an album to her," he told "GMA."
He continued, "I actually have no idea what I’m doing. I’m just kind of flying by the seat of my pants on this one. I just wanted to make something artistic out of a very difficult period. ... When you lose the love of your life you don’t have much to hide anymore."
Thicke also had some advice for other married men.
"If you’ve got a good woman, take care of her guys," he said.
In another interview about his album "Paula," Thicke told Hot 97, "I had so much that I still wanted to apologize for and take responsibility for and that’s what the album is about.”
He added that “I haven’t seen her in four months,” referring to Patton.
“Last year was really just kind of a blur in many ways, no pun intended,” he told Hot 97's "Elbro in the Morning." “Everything happened so fast and you don’t realize all the things that come with it. I changed and I got a little too selfish and a little too greedy and a little too full of myself. At this point in our relationship, the only reason we’re not together is because of the choices I made.”
Thicke also admitted that Patton hasn't heard the album yet, maybe only a few songs. The two separated earlier this year after weeks of infidelity rumors surrounding Thicke.
“I messed up and had to lie for a while and then I stopped lying and that was actually good for me because I was tired of lying. So this whole album is me revealing everything," he said.
