Speaking to Radio 4, the actor said that his upcoming album focuses on his midlife crisis that followed his break-up with Sarandon.
"A midlife crisis - I think we all go through something, it's inevitable," the 51-year-old said.
He added: "It's when you pass 40, inherently we double our age when we think about life. You start thinking about how many years you've got left. 'What the hell am I doing here?' I asked myself. 'What is it that will make you happy? What is it you have not done that you will regret not doing?'"
The Shawshank Redemption star explained that he hopes to release the record later this year.
He continued: "I was thinking about calling it The Midlife Crisis Album, but then I thought that's not going to sell any copies. Then I thought, 'How about Songs of Love and Misery?'"
Robbins split from Sarandon last December.
