Justin Timberlake Announces “Man Of The Woods” Album
Justin Timberlake has been fairly quiet since the release of his popular song “Can’t Stop The Feeling” in 2016, but now he announces a forthcoming album called Man Of The Woods.
Timberlake hit fans with an official trailer for the project earlier today featuring snippets of new material while he runs through fields and wooded areas talking about the LP.
The pop icon had this to say:
“This album is really inspired by my son, my wife, my family, but more so than any album I’ve ever written, where I’m from, and it’s personal.”
Frequent collaborator Pharrell Williams is also working on the project and added:
“Songwise I think we’ve got a good six that are like, ‘Woah, what was that? Play that again.’ I would pay Justin a huge compliment to say he’s just discovering who he is now. For the biggest pop stars in the world, the place where they have the most trouble is honesty. It’s hard for them to know that the beauty of a record, the sweetest spot in the song, is where they show vulnerability. Because there’s a formulaic sort of vulnerability , like ‘Baby, I can’t sleep without you…’ and that’s not really it. But if you are actually able to screenshot your own vulnerability, and frame it properly, and color-correct it, then it becomes something every human can relate to. And I think Justin is in a place where he is mastering that right now.”
Man Of The Woods will be Justin’s fifth studio album following his highly successful effort The 20/20 Experience: 2 Of 2, which arrived in September 2013.
Watch the trailer below and expect Man Of The Woods to arrive February 2nd. A new song from Timberlake is set to impact this Friday, January 5th.
