Justin Timberlake is officially back
Earlier in the week, Justin Timberlake released a video teasing his first new album in almost five years.
The teaser featured a grisly Timberlake in the woods, with the singer talking about returning to his roots. Fans were convinced that he was getting ready to drop a country album.
On Thursday night Timberlake released the first single from his upcoming album, Man of the Woods. The song, which is called “Filthy,” and which was produced by Timberlake himself alongside Timbaland and Danja, is not a country song. It’s a funky pop record, similar to what we heard on the 2006 classic FutureSex/LoveSounds.
Soon after releasing the song, Timberlake dropped the video, which features Timberlake as this Steve Jobs figure presenting a series of dancing robots.
Timberlake’s new album, Man Of The Woods, drops on February 2nd, just two days before his Super Bowl performance.
Watch the video for “Filthy” below.
