Justin Timberlake Announces New Album ‘Man of the Woods’

After a five-year hiatus, Justin Timberlake is ready to embark on a new era.

The 36-year-old singer has announced his fifth studio album, Man of the Woods, will arrive on February 2.

“This album is really inspired by my son, my wife, my family, but more so than any other album I’ve ever written, where I’m from,” says the Memphis native.

The release date comes just two days before Timberlake’s highly anticipated performance at the 52nd Super Bowl Halftime Show presented by Pepsi. It will be Timberlake’s first time performing at the Super Bowl since 2004, when he joined Janet Jackson on stage and left her topless.

The lead single from Man of the Woods will arrive this Friday, Jan. 5. The album will feature production from Timberlake’s longtime collaborators Pharrell and Timbaland.

Man of the Woods will follow Timberlake’s 2013 efforts The 20/20 Experience and The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2, which were both produced primarily by Timbaland.

Justin Timberlake Shares New Song and Video, ‘Supplies’

After dropping his “Filthy” track two weeks ago, Justin Timberlake follows-up with a new song called “Supplies.” On The Neptunes-produced track, Timberlake tells his woman that even in an apocalypse, his love enough for survival.

“‘Cause I’ll be the light when you can’t see / I’ll be the wood when you need heat / I’ll be the generator, turn me on when you need electricity / Some shit’s ’bout to go down / I’ll be the one with the level head / The world could end now / Baby, we’ll be living in The Walking Dead,” sings Timberlake.

Timberlake also premiered the video for “Supplies,” which was directed by Dave Meyers. The politically-charged video opens with Timberlake sitting in front of a stack of television screens consuming visuals a lot of issues that are happening in this country — from the #MeToo movement to police brutality.

From the looks of the video, Timberlake wants the world to know how ‘woke’ he is. But is he? We’ll leave that up to you to decide.

On Feb. 2, he will release his fifth album, Man of the Woods, on RCA Records. On Feb. 4, he will take center stage as the headlining act of Super Bowl Halftime Show presented by Pepsi.
