Justin Timberlake releases new single Filthy on Friday

The first single and accompanying video for Justin Timberlake’s fourth album, Man of the Woods, will be released on Friday. Titled Filthy, the tune is co-produced by Timberlake, Timbaland and Danja. The album itself drops on RCA Records on Feb. 2.

Man of the Woods is a bit of a comeback for the 10-time Grammy winning Timberlake, who has spent some time away from the spotlight.

Expect the new material to be a slight change of style for the artist who is best known for his tight R&B-tinged pop. While Filthy will likely stick to dance heavy beats, Man of the Woods is said to be tilted more in the direction of Americana, reflecting Timberlake’s new home in Memphis.

He says the album is about his life as a married father and the changes that family brings. On the album cover, he’s even adopted a scruffier look with jeans, a T-shirt and boots. Lately, he’s been seen on stage strumming acoustic guitars.

J.T. with a twang is a new thang.

Man of the Woods boasts collaborations with the Neptunes, Christ Stapleton and Alicia Keys. Timberlake will showcase songs from the album at the Pepsi Super Bowl LII Halftime Show on Feb. 4.

Hopefully there won’t be any wardrobe malfunctions this time around.
