Out singer Ricky Martin says he's enjoying the single life.

Martin and partner Carlos Gonzalez Abella, a financial analyst he met in 2008, called in quits in late 2013.

Speaking to Michigan gay weekly PrideSource, Martin said that his relationship partly inspired his new album A Quien Quiera Escuchar (To Whomever Wants to Listen).

"After six years of being in a very steady relationship with him, yes, we have a lot of stories and we have a lot of moments of love and lots of light and yes, he is part of this album," Martin, 43, explained. "It's not about what I've lived [through] this year that we broke up or even the last five years. It's decades of allowing myself to really go back and remember specific relationships that really [affected] me in many ways. And it became music. It's never too late."

Though he concedes he's a romantic – "I love being in love" – Martin said that he's "enjoying being single."

"I'm enjoying the process. I'm not saying that I don't want to be in a relationship – I would be lying to you," Martin said.
