Justin Timberlake has been waiting five years to announce his latest album. Man of the Woods will be dropping in February before his performance at the Superbowl Half Time Show. His song "Filthy" is a far cry from the teaser for the album that showed JT in the woods and being one with nature. The song features futuristic undertones and throws back to his FutureSex/LoveSounds vibe.

Its message is a bit unexpected given the fact that Justin's promotional material of the album so far not to mention the name of it states that this new work is centered around fatherhood, family and getting back to his down-home roots.

Filthy


The video shows a Steve Jobs style Timberlake, and he introduces a dancing robot to the audience while he dances off stage. He also announced the tracklist for the new album which will feature Christ Stapleton and Alicia Keys. Since the preview featured a more rustic JT, there are songs titled "Flannel" and "Montana" it'll be interesting to see what direction he takes.
