Robin Thicke is currently at work on the untitled follow-up to 2009’s Sex Therapy, due in stores in late 2011 or early 2012. Speaking with, the smooth crooner explained that progress is steady on his fifth studio LP, and that it mostly features him with the exception of a possible collaboration with Pharrell Williams.

“It’s coming great. I think you get to that point where you hate it and then you love it. It’s like any important relationship in your life,” he said. “Just myself, written and produced, like the first few albums.”

While at the launch for Pharrell’s new liqueur Qream, Thicke explained that the two discussed linking up for another collaboration. “Yeah, we were just actually talking about it maybe while he’s here in the next week or two, we might get together and do something. Because he’s heard the album so he wants to get something on there. So we’re excited.”
