It’s been almost five years since the release of Justin Timberlake’s last album The 20/20 Experience, but JT isn’t ready to head off into the sunset just yet. Instead, he’s apparently embarking on a new phase of his career, with an upcoming album entitled Man of the Woods – not exactly a title that screams the kind of pop R&B on which he made his bones.
As for what Man of the Woods will be like, I think the best thing to do is to let Timberlake speak for himself. Today he released a trailer for the project, which features him walking around in the, yep, woods, and explaining how this album is his most personal one yet:
Man of the Woods is set to drop on February 2nd, a couple days before JT is set to make his return to Super Bowl halftime shows. He’s also reportedly going to release a track off the album on January 5th, so stay tuned for that if you’re so inclined.
