Michael Bublé has revealed that he is going for a more soulful sound on his new record To Be Loved.

The Canadian crooner is currently preparing for the release of his upcoming album To Be Loved.

Michael took a different musical direction with his new tunes and is happy that he finally sang songs in the way he has always dreamed of.

“[I am channeling my] favourite artist in the world, Michael Jackson…this record I felt like I finally didn’t care,” he explained to ET Canada.

“I would allow myself to challenge myself to go to a place that was probably too scary for me to go before because I was afraid of what people would think about a white boy singing this stuff.”

Michael believes listeners will realise that he put his heart and soul into To Be Loved.

He is extremely proud of his work.

“I love this record. I think it’s a very special record, it’s probably my best,” Michael gushed.

The 37-year-old Canadian singer and Argentine actress-and-model Luisana Lopilato have been married since 2011 and are currently expecting their first child together.

Michael revealed that he is not "freaked out", but he’s "not ready" to become a father either.

"But who knows who is ready,” he mused.

To Be Loved will hit shelves in April.
