Robin Thicke is back with new music, and he’s opening up about the passing of his father, Alan Thicke and how it strengthened his relationship with God.
In a recent interview with PEOPLE, Robin shares that his new song “Testify,” describes how the death of his father impacted his life, but also made him gain a closer relationship to God.
“Well, it’s funny — my father passed away a couple of years ago and I thought I had an album and these songs that I wanted to put out. Then when that happened, it was something I wasn’t expecting and it just rattled my soul,” he explained. “So, I took some time to re-think the album and then these songs started pouring out that had more meaning and more weight to them.”
He said, “ And so the message in the song is really about the hope and the light at the end of that tunnel when you feel that you lost or you feel that you don’t know what to do next. You know, that reconnection to God or spirituality or something deeper than the surface is what brings you back home to who you really are and who you want to be.”
“Testify” is the lead single from his upcoming album that will have the same type of spiritual vibe.
“I think sometimes tragedy makes you count your blessings, Thicke shares. So the album will hopefully be littered with some spirituality and some finding yourself. But it also is about, let’s celebrate all this greatness we have around us.”
