It’s coming sooner than you think!
Justin Timberlake unveils the release dates of his new album and single.
It’s been nearly five years since Justin Timberlake’s last album The 20/20 Experience, but he is quenching fans’ thirst this new year by announcing his long-awaited album, Man of the Woods.
The “Mirrors” singer took to Twitter this morning (Jan. 2) to post a teaser video showcasing him running through the wilderness, a snippet of new music, and even footage of him in the studio with Pharrell. The first single from the project is set to be released this Friday, January 5, although a title has not been given to it yet. If it’s the snippet that played in the teaser, though, then we know JT will have no problem blazing up the charts with this one.
In the album teaser, JT says the record is inspired by his wife, his son and where he came from. “It’s personal,” he says.
Man of the Woods will be released on February 2, and the list of collaborations so far ranks from Usher to Chris Stapleton. JT was also reportedly spotted filming multiple videos for the project, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if visuals for the album were underway as well.
Timberlake will take the Super Bowl LII stage on February 4, two days after Man of the Woods is released.
