With a hit single on his hands, Robin Thicke is considering the option of hitting the road for a tour in support of his anticipated album, "Blurred Lines."
While he's doing promotional tours throughout the U.S., including stops at radio stations and programming like the BET Awards, Thicke doesn't plan to kick off an official tour in the U.S. until next year (2014).
"We're gonna try to just do promotion the rest of the year, and then we're gonna do some European tours and we're not gonna tour here in the States 'til next year," he shared with Billboard recently. "There's so many opportunities for promotions and radio stations and people that have never seen me before, so we're really gonna focus on just getting out there, and hopefully by next spring we'll be ready to put on a real U.S. tour."
In related news, Robin Thicke credits his wife for kind of inspiring the direction and final song selection for this album, including the title track.
"My wife (Paula Patton) and I would hang out at the end of the night, and I would play her the songs I was working on and we would dance around and be so happy," Thicke told Billboard. "And then some of my sadder and more depressing songs would come on, and we would always want to go back to the top and keep dancing and having a good time. So I think I just ended up making an escape album. I never plan it, but I think I did my best to make my wife and I have a chance to escape every night, and I felt like that made for a great album."
"Blurred Lines," the album, is due for release July 30.
