After rumbles of an impending album filled 2017, Justin Timberlake kicked off the new year announcing the release date to his 5th studio album, Man of the Woods, set to drop Feb. 2nd.
Along with revealing the release date, the album’s lead single is also set to drop this Friday, Jan. 6th. Speaking on the album in a video uploaded to his Instagram page, JT described the album as “inspired by my son, my wife, my family, but more so than any other album I’ve ever written, where I’m from.” Pharrell also makes an appearance in the video, as JT previously confirmed the two have a “good solid six” songs recorded.
Man of the Woods comes on the heels of his Super Bowl performance on Feb. 4th, guaranteeing his performance will contain material fresh off the album.
