It’s a great time to be a Justin Timberlake fan! Not only did the singer release a new song and announce his upcoming album “Man of the Woods,” but he’s also performing during halftime at the Super Bowl AND going on tour. So, start saving your money to jam with JT in-person.
It’s been a while since Timberlake put out music, but based on what he’s teased so far—this album was worth the wait. He’s already released a single, “Filthy,” and it’s just the kind of thing you’d expect from the pop king.
He’s the same singer you know and love, but, according to a teaser video, his “Man of the Woods” album is also different than ever before—so, get ready to see a whole different side of him. Based on the titles of the songs, it sounds like Timberlake might be going country.
“This album is really inspired by my son, my wife, my family, but more so than any other album I’ve ever written—where I’m from. And it’s personal,” he said.
Timberlake was born in Memphis, Tennessee, and the outdoors and nature were major inspirations for the album. He’s apparently hoping to incorporate that feeling into his tour, as well. The cover for the new album appropriately shows him spending some time outside.
He said in a video announcing the tour, “The outdoors is the inspiration for a lot of these songs. That’s the main idea. The tour will be able to bring the outside in,” Timberlake explains in the video. “How can we bring that to life? I want people to see the inspiration for how it ended up sounding. I’ve never seen that done before—bring the outside in.”
Getting excited to see what Timberlake’s dreamt up? Me too!
