Justin Timberlake Announces New Album 'Man of the Woods'
Singer sets February album release days before Super Bowl performance


Justin Timberlake revealed his new album 'Man of the Woods' will be out next month days before his Super Bowl performance
By Elias Leight
11 minutes ago

Justin Timberlake plans to release a new album, Man of the Woods, on February 2nd. The singer announced the news on Tuesday with a short teaser detailing his thought process behind the album.


The trailer portrays Timberlake as a rugged everyman: He struts through cornfields and snowy vistas and sits alone at night by a roaring fire. "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," he says in a voiceover. Very brief snippets of new music play throughout the clip. Pharrell Williams, a longtime Timberlake collaborator, gets the final word in the trailer, describing a new Man of the Woods song as "a smash."

Timberlake's album announcement is well-timed, as the singer is set to perform at the Super Bowl halftime show two days later on February 4th. The singer will release the first single from Man of the Woods on Friday.

Timberlake's last full-length, The 20/20 Experience, was a wildly ambitious double album released in two parts during 2013. Last year, Timberlake worked heavily on the soundtrack to the movie Trolls. His single, "Can't Stop the Feeling," reached Number One on the Hot 100 last year.

Hopefully there's a few decent cuts, I still enjoy a few tracks from 20-20 (Tunnel Vision, Blue Ocean Floor, Suit and Tie, Dress On until Timbaland ruins it with his raps).

if it were, I would have been very interested to watch the ensuing mayhem.

(I still haven't watched the whole movie, but went through the whole soundtrack and most of the music clips recently. pretty good overall.)

But I agree with you 100% here. The song sounds like a typical pop offering. I got the impression that he was going rogue with this one.

Tim & Danja brought some electrofied heat on this. not minding a slightly askew Timberlake either. i seem to recall SexyBack getting a divisive response too, until a month or two later when everyone and their uncle were gettin down to it. i predict same shit will happen with this.

hopefully that will be the case here too.

the loud ass electro whatever shit dominates the track and is kinda distracting. but when you focus in on the bassline...its hard not to catch that groove.

timberfluff putting out more wackness. he peaked and primed in 06 and even then that was watered down.

he is a liteweight with middleweight aspirations.

One of the Most Overrated White Acts that I have ever seen or heard.

if timberlake wanted to have a cool white thing and not be wack with it he should call up Richard Marx and Don Henley to show him how to do it middle of the road right with some cool

...so does that mean they're cool with Jive Records?

Cause I thought he was mad at them for not letting The Clipse out of their contract, and that's why he didn't want to work on any more JT projects.

Timbo is more miss than hit these days, and has been for a while. *MAYBE* Danja can bring back some old heat but judging by Filthy, idk

But I'll take Chad Hugo back in the studio almost over anyone, if he / they are in for real I'm down

In response to Reply # 34


  

          

His thing was avant garde pop; while in hindsight its not a reach to holla at huge rap producers for pop tracks, him tapping neps and timbo for whole albums (when before at most a white star might hit em up for a first single or remix for a bit of flavor) was a big deal.

Suit and Tie era was a flop in comparison; but even in its failure it tried for something different...the avg length of those pop songs was 7 minutes long(!!!) and clearly he was trying to aim for higher musical aspirations even tho he missed.

These two new records aint bad, but they sound like ‘pretty good’ inoffensive pop r&b records for a dude known to push the medium. In an era where Bruno Mars and even Calvin Harris are bringing the crossover hits (and flipping the script while doing it) him jusr kinda wading water was a bad decision.

I like these two songs, but they pedestrian as hell

There are some good songs on this but altogether uninspiring...

Music needs a new timbo and/or neptunes...

Something that upends our ideas of rhythm and sound... something altogether left field with a clear understanding of pop

That rustic trailer turned out to be a bit of a bait and switch. MOTW is very much a typical Justin Timberlake release. The fusion of his usual pop/R&B slickness with contrived "Southern" accents--a little bit of fiddle, a smidgen of slide guitar, etc.--is as corny as almost all of the lyrics.

JT has never been "great" on any level despite what the critics have said but his music was always expertly produced...now, it's not even that.

"Midnight Summer Jam" is nice tho. *shrugs*

He made a generic pop album with flashes of Americana. Nothing I want to hear again.

I do want an instrumental for "Supplies" tho.

Yeah the first was very good. I always thought the second was just scraps from the first and that was why the drop in quality.

they were all recorded in the same sessions span. part 2 was basically a money grab with songs from the cutting room floor.
