Although he struggled for a long time after splitting from his then-wife, Thicke is doing a lot better these days. While appearing on Good Morning America Wednesday, the "Blurred Lines" singer talked to Robin Roberts about his new song, "Back Together," and life without his wife. With a title like that, however, she had to ask the question: Is this song about Patton?
"Actually I didn't write this song so I can't take credit for the meaning," he said. "I just heard this idea of getting back together and getting yourself back together, and what I was going through at the time I really really related to that and connected to it."
Although he has gotten himself back together—he's even dating someone new—Thicke said that his new single, which also features Nicki Minaj, is more about learning to trust other people again. "It's more about the theme of getting yourself back together with love and partnership," he said.
