The singer announced the release news on Tuesday (02Jan18) with an arty online video detailing the inspiration behind the new collection of songs.

As footage plays of outdoorsman Justin enjoying his solitude as he walks through winter and summer landscapes and sits beside a fire, the pop star says, “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. It’s personal.”

The teaser also features longtime Timberlake collaborator Pharrell Williams raving over an unidentified song on the album, stating, “This is a smash!”

The Memphis, Tennessee native’s album release will come days after the singer turns 37 on 31 January, and it will coincide with his headlining gig at the Super Bowl halftime show on 4 February.
Justin will launch the project’s first single on Friday (05Jan18).

Man of the Woods will be Timberlake’s follow-up to The 20/20 Experience, which was released in 2013.
