It’s been three long years since To Be Loved and being treated to new music from our favorite crooner — but Michael Bublé is officially back in action with his latest release, Nobody But Me.
Joining one half of Fresh 102.7’s morning show, Carson and Cane, Michael explained to Karen Carson just what it was that kept him away all this time.
“The reason why it’s been a three year break,” Michael says with a sly smile, “is because my wife and I, we did it. We made love. And when you do it, sometimes, when a man and woman love each other, and they feel special things for each other, they will kiss and hug and sometimes they will make a baby… and we made two babies. Which is proof to everyone we did it.”
This is a process Karen, a mom of three, understands perfectly well, although now she’s got a teen on her hands, which makes her remember the “good times” that Michael is now in the midst of with his two boys (Noah and Elias) aged three and one. The “good times” when you still have some control over the little monsters and can still “have a life.”
“I don’t have much of a life,” Michael laughed, explaining that he wanted some time to experience the stay-at-home dad thing. “I love every second of it. I’d like to have seven or nine… or twelve!”
How does his wife Luisana feel about those numbers?
“I think she’s got more like a ‘four’ in there,” Michael says. “You know she’s the boss of everything, it’s her body — there’s nothing that I can do to change any of this. So whatever we can do, we do.”
Now that he’s had some uninterrupted fun being a dad, Michael says it’s now time to get back to being with his “other family” — his fans.
Speaking about his latest release Nobody But Me (which, by the way, comes packaged in an adorable case that shows Michael now and as a child!) he says it’s hard for him to sell it because he wrote and produced the songs himself and considers it his “third baby.”
“I really feel so strongly that this is such an intimate and personal record that I just want people to go and just give it a chance. Go listen to some of the tracks – I’m not even saying ‘buy ’em’ – go to YouTube if you want, it costs nothing.
“I have so much confidence that this record is a special record, that I think that when you listen you’ll want to have it. I think it’ll make you feel good.
“Literally I made it for you, it came from my heart, and I hope you like it.”
