Robin Thicke has poured his emotions into the first track of his upcoming album, "On Earth, and In Heaven." Taking to Instagram, Thicke shared how the song had been inspired by his father, Alan Thicke, and producer, Andre Hall, who both had died.

The 43-year-old posted a photo of his younger self on the set of "Growing Pains," which his father, Alan, who used to be on the show, last Friday. Robin sits in a director's chair in the photo, with both he and Alan smiling at the camera.

He explained that Lucky Star was the final track he wrote, which will kick the album off as the playlist's first track. He added once this song was completed, they knew the album was ready. He also wrote in his caption:

"My father and Andre Harrell are my Lucky Stars."

Robin described Alan and Hall as the everlasting presence that anchors him and provides him with hope, especially when he feels alone in the world. Alan died in 2016, with Hall passing last May.

He announced his upcoming studio album at the beginning of January, making it his first full-length release in a period of 6 years. It's scheduled to be released on February 12 and will be the first project under a new music partnership.

As part of promotional efforts, Robin also released a lyric video for the first track. He accompanied this with a trailer for the upcoming album, which shows some of the highs and lows the singer has endured over the years.

One of those highs includes his son, Luca Patrick, born on December 13. He was born on the fourth anniversary of Alan's death. Robin welcomed Luca with his fiance, April Love Geary, who took to Instagram to share the news in her caption:

"My Luca Patrick, you are so perfect. Mommy & daddy love you so much."

On the flip side of that high, a low point saw Robin's marriage to his ex-wife Paula Patton come to an end when she filed for divorce after controversial pictures of Robin being intimate with a socialite emerged.

The Canadian-American artist has enjoyed moments in the spotlight thanks to collaborations with Jennifer Hudson, Christina Aguilera, Flo Rida, and Nicki Minaj.

Blurred Lines, which he performed with Pharrell, catapulted Thicke into the height of his music career. However, he endured backlash after the song and music video was accused of being misogynistic and sexually aggressive.

The last studio album Thicke released was in 2014, titled Paula, in an attempt to win his ex-wife back. The LP debuted at number 9 on the Billboard 200 but attracted headlines for all the reasons.

Thicke has seen his career travel the highs of success and the lows of controversy. Critics have not been afraid to tear his music apart at times, with fans being even more disparaging of some of his previous antics.
