Justin Timberlake revealed the release date for his new album Man of the Woods.
The singer stunned fans earlier this week when he abruptly announced that he is dropping a new album on February 2nd. It’s been close to five years since the release of Timberlake’s last album, “The 20/20 Experience“, which was released in 2013. In March of last year, Timberlake tweeted “It’s on it’s way” and followed up in November to say the new album would be different.
Timberlake credits the new album to his family, “the album is inspired by my wife, son, family and more so than any other album that I have ever written, where I’m from and it is personal.” The pop icon who was born and raised in Tennessee has fans wondering if he has put a country twist to his new music.
