Seal is speaking out ... about speaking out about his divorce.
The reason he's been so forthcoming about his recent split with Heidi Klum, according to the singer, is to promote his upcoming tour because we deserve to know.
He's generous, that Seal.
"When you publicize your marriage as much as ours was, when you renew wedding vows, all those things ... you're painting a picture of an ideal relationship that people aspire to," he said on the Australian radio show Fifi and Jules.
"So, when it goes south, you can't all of a sudden take the philosophy of a monk and decide to go for a vow of silence," the singer continued.
"It doesn't really work like that. I certainly respect my wife's decision not to talk about that, but I felt that people at least deserved some kind of explanation why that picture of the ideal relationship wasn't what they thought it was."
Seal really went above and beyond full disclosure, though.
