Seal wrote album to deal with divorce

Seal used his new album as therapy following his divorce.

The 'Kiss from a Rose' hitmaker split with wife Heidi Klum - with whom he raises children Leni, 11, Henry, 10, Johan, eight, and Lou, five - in 2012 and has channelled all his emotions into new LP '7'.

He said: "Some people pay to see a therapist, but I write an album. I would never divulge which songs are autobiographical - some bits are, of course."

Despite the breakdown of his marriage, Seal hasn't lost faith in love.

He said: "My faith in love is stronger than it's ever been. You can't become jaded or fearful. That would be a dark and lonely place."

Instead, the 52-year-old singer is happy in a new relationship with Erica Packer, but wants to keep it as private as possible.

He told HELLO! magazine: "Am I in a happy relationship? Yeah I am. I don't talk about it so much because I've learnt when you're in a relationship in the public eye, you need to keep the thing that are precious to you, so you stand a much higher chance of survival."

And he won't be having any more kids with the mother-of-three as he thinks "four children is a lot."
