AceShowbiz - The wait is finally over. More than four years after the release of Justin Timberlake's "The 20/20 Experience", the singer announced new album entitled "Man of the Woods" would make its way out to stores on February 2, just two days before his Super Bowl halftime show performance. The singer shared on social media on January 2 a teaser clip for the records.
The one-minute clip finds Justin running around in various landscape. At one point, the viewers get to see glimpses of his wife Jessica Biel and son Silas. "This album is really inspired by my son, my wife, my family, but more so than any other I've ever written, where I'm from," so Justin says in the clip. "And it's personal."
"It feels like mountains, trees, campfires. Like Wild West, but now," Jessica says of the album in the clip. The end of the clip sees Justin and his longtime collaborator Pharrell Williams recording something in a studio. "It feels so earthy," Pharrell says. "It's just where you are in your life right now." He then exclaims, "That is a smash."
Justin had been dishing on the new album since last year, revealing that he was going back to his roots. "I think where I grew up in America has a lot of influence," he told Carson Daly at the time. "Growing up in Tennessee -- very central of the country -- Memphis is known as the birthplace of rock'n'roll, but also the home of the blues, but Nashville's right down the street so there's a lot of country music."
In another interview, Justin revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that the songs on the new album sounded like Southern American music. "It sounds more like where I've come from than any other music I've ever made," he shared. "It's Southern American music. But I want to make it sound modern -- at least that's the idea right now."
