Justin Timberlake announces new single, album

Justin Timberlake

"Filthy" is the first single from the singer's upcoming album, Man of the Woods, scheduled for release on February 2.

The visuals were helmed by Mark Romanek, who's directed videos for JAY-Z, Taylor Swift, and even Timberlake's own "Can't Stop the Feeling!".

Other artists appearing on Man of the Woods include Pharrell Williams, Alicia Keys, Timbaland and The Neptunes. Prior to the release of Man of the Woods, Timberlake will unveil another three tracks which will be made available to stream and download.

"I think we should just make a deal", Timberlake said on stage (quote via the Tennessean).

Justin Timberlake has been teasing his new album, , for a few days, and now he's dropped the first taste. That's why the album has already promised four different singles that will show the range of what the record contains.

Timberlake's highly-anticipated Woods will arrive almost five years since his last album, The 20/20 Experience.

Unless Filthy is a misdirection, it doesn't sound like Timberlake has altered his direction all that much. The trailer features plenty of horses, a campfire, and Timberlake clad in a fringed leather jacket.

The new track, titled Filthy, is a mix of synth-funk, some elements of rock, and of course JT's famous pop-fuelled self. His previous performance at the 2004 Super Bowl ended in the infamous "wardrobe malfunction", wherein Timberlake ripped off part of Janet Jackson's outfit, and Jackson somehow ended up with most of the blame.
