Depending on how you count it, Seal’s latest effort ‘Seal IV’ is actually his second since ‘Human Being.’ He recorded and trashed a complete album before making ‘Seal IV.’ “The other album wasn’t relevant. I listened to it and I didn’t believe it,” Seal tells Billboard. The label liked the now-discarded effort but thought it lacked a crucial hit single. “So they felt I needed to come up with the song, but you see, that’s not good enough for me. I took that as meaning that basically the album wasn’t good enough. It had no bearing on the reality of who I was or what I felt I needed to communicate at that point in my life. I think I had become somewhat reclusive, living in my little castle in Los Angeles, without going back home.”
