(42 West) Robin Thicke has set December 6th, 2011 release date for his fifth studio album, Love After War.
Completely written and produced by Robin Thicke with producing partner Pro Jay, the album will be released by Star Trak/Geffen. Love After War is Thicke at his most raw and honest condition yet.
This was an album born out of a desire to be the uncompromising, idealistic artist he was as a boy, married with the weight of being a man with responsibilities and the scars of the past. The video for the first single, the title track "Love After War" premiered on the online outlet VEVO.com as well as BET's 106 & Park.
Love After War and songs you'll discover within it, like "An Angel on Each Arm", "I'm An Animal", "Never Give Up", "Cloud 9", "Pretty Lil' Heart" and "Tears On My Tuxedo" need no explanation: they speak for themselves. Robin believes a song can be whatever the listener wants it to be. The reasons and decisions that lead him to write his songs are not important; what matters most is how they make the listener feel. Robin is as faithful to his fans as they are to him. His ultimate desire is to entertain the listener… to move them… to inspire them… to make them love more.
Thicke also announced an exclusive underplay tour in select cities in advance of the album tour. The tour will travel to intimate venues in cities such as New York, Chicago, Atlanta, and Los Angeles. Full tour routing can be found below and tickets are available at www.robinthicke.com
