Justin Timberlake just announced that he will be releasing a new album titled Man Of The Woods on February 2nd. He premiered a trailer for the project full of snippets of his new material. He had this to say about the album.
“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.”
Pharrell also chimed in:
“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.”
