Recorded in Los Angeles, and featuring horn players from Michael Jackson's Off the Wall, Robin Thicke's third CD maintains the retro pop-soul feel of his 2007 breakthrough, The Evolution of Robin Thicke. "It brings back the Seventies — loud horns, loud strings, loud drums," says Thicke. The other main influence? Barack Obama. "He's the inspiration for what I'm feeling," says Thicke. The funked-out first single, "Magic," is full of Obama-worthy optimism, and "Dreamworld" addresses the racism Thicke has seen while traveling with his wife, who is black. "That song is a direct response to walking in Mississippi and being looked at sideways," he says.
