The singer is set to perform the Super Bowl halftime show, undoubtedly with some of his new music, just days after the album drops. He says the album is inspired by his son, his wife, his family and where he is from.

With artists like Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato losing their grip on the charts, it's clear we've needed a return to when pop was best, when '90s legends Britney, Christina and, obviously, Justin Timberlake were at their peak.

On Tuesday, the 36-year-old pop singer kicked off 2018 by announcing his upcoming album, Man of the Woods.

"It feels so earthy", says Williams.

While it's too early to tell what the record will sound like, snippets of what are likely to be parts of Man of the Woods are embedded within the visual. The two collaborated on Pharrell's 2014 album G I R L and other non-JT projects previously, and there's that brief intro to "Senorita", but we want more!

The teaser also features longtime Timberlake collaborator Pharrell Williams raving over an unidentified song on the album, stating, "This is a smash!" If Timberlake isn't eaten by a bear midway through the album, I'm going to be very disappointed by his effort. Timberlake has acknowledged Taylor as the first JT before; in 2013 he tweeted, "Carole King and James Taylor (the FIRST JT!) on PBS Live at the Troubadour is giving me life right now". Timberlake takes the Super Bowl stage on February 4th.
