New Music: Robin Thicke - "Morning Sun" [Full Audio]
And the new Robin Thicke single “Morning Sun” here. And it’s here a bit sooner than expected. The official radio release for the song is next week’s July 7 so I assumed the digital premiere would be a day or two prior to that at most. Imagine my surprise when I find out Robin released the single last night (June 29) on iTunes. He got me!
“Morning Sun” is the confirmed lead single from the blue-eyed singer’s forthcoming eighth studio album of his career that is expected to come out later this year via Insterscope Records – yep, he didn’t get fired from this label despite the disaster that was “Paula” last year. He is one luck fella.
As predicted from the leaked snippet a few days ago, “Morning Sun” is a feel-good soul/pop song where Robin serenades his lady with beautiful words about how amazing she is and how happy she makes her. The production is super groovy as you can imagine and very in line to the sound he had in “The Evolution of Robin Thicke” – someone trying to got back his roots? The song ain’t bad but it doesn’t sound like a major hit to me. It’s just that I have heard so many songs like this in the past, so it’s nothing groundbreaking or fresh to my ears. However, “Morning Sun” is undoubtedly a step up from everything in “Paula”.
