On 7, Seal explores love and all of its implications, idiosyncrasies, and intricacies -subject matter he began to delicately approach as early as 2013, knowing exactly where he wanted to go."The album concerns the most sung about, most talked about, and most documented emotion-love,"Seal says."I tried to capture all of the wonderfully different dynamics of love, whether it's the anger, the acceptance, the bliss, the sadness, the elation, or the recklessness. It's this emotion and the ways it makes us feel. It's about the extreme joy and the extreme regret as well as all of the crazy things love makes us do."
