The star, who will take the stage for a Super Bowl halftime show performance on Feb. 4, announced that his long-awaited record, Man of the Woods, will be out Feb. 2. Kevin Mazur/WireImage If that isn’t exciting enough, Timberlake shared a clip with a preview of the new music on Tuesday, and it sounds totally different from anything he’s released in the past. “This album is really inspired by my son, my wife, my family, but more so than any other album I’ve ever written, where I’m from,” he says in the video. “And it’s personal.” The clip shows Timberlake walking through the woods, wading into the water, and running with horses, with glimpses of his wife Jessica Biel and son Silas even making their way into the album preview. Timberlake grew up in Tennessee, and it’s clear that with his new record, he’s going back to his roots. Before Justin Timberlake Brought Sexy Back, This Is Where It Had Gone “It feels so earthy.
