Justin Timberlake says new album will be his most 'personal' yet

Justin TImberlake

The project is his first album in almost five years, and it's set for release on February 2, two days before he headlines the 2018 Super Bowl Halftime Show.

"This album is really inspired by my son, my wife, my family", Timberlake said in the clip. Just like the title of the upcoming album, Man of the Woods, Timberlake wants everyone to think that he's a man of the wilderness.

Take a look at the visual announcement, complete with snowy pine trees and Jessica Biel in an Indiana Jones hat, below.

At least one national music blog noted how Timberlake's album announcement resembled the work of a Wisconsin music maker well-loved in the Twin Cities (one who famously made his first album in a cabin in the woods): "Pretty amusing that the pop star who once parodied Bon Iver on SNL has now apparently made his very own Bon Iver album", wrote Stereogum.

Tearful Gabriel Jesus forced off for City
In Wenger's record 811th game in charge, James McClean deflected in Alexis Sanchez's 83rd-minute free kick to put Arsenal ahead. He made his way to the dressing room in tears, consoled by City's medical staff.

After a long four years Justin Timberlake fans can finally be satisfied. His last single was "Can't Stop The Feeling" off the Trolls soundtrack. Frequent collaborator Pharrell Williams is quoted as saying, "It feels so earthy". The Grammy Award-winning singer plans to drop his new track from Man of the Woods this Friday (Jan. 5).

In September 2016 in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Timberlake mentioned that he was back in the studio. The two collaborated on Pharrell's 2014 album G I R L and other non-JT projects previously, and there's that brief intro to "Senorita", but we want more! The Friends with Benefits star, removed a piece of Jackson's outfit during his "Rock Your Body" lyrics.

The album drops on February 2nd just ahead of Timberlake's Super Bowl halftime performance on Sunday, February 4th.
