Justin Timberlake disappeared from the music scene for just about the right amount of time since his massive success with the 20/20 Experience album. He still appeared at award shows and released the hit single, “Can’t Fight The Feeling” from the Trolls movie soundtrack. Now, he’s back with a vengeance. His upcoming album, Man Of The Woods, will be released on February 2nd. Of course, this was carefully planned right before his highly anticipated Super Bowl Half Time performance. The last time he performed…..well, I think we all remember what happened there. Let’s just say she’s Ms. Jackson if you’re nasty.
His new single “Filthy” is honestly less lyrically dense than I was expecting. This doesn’t mean the song is bad though. In fact, it’s far from it. The production has a very futuristic sound that’s addictive yet borderline annoying with its perpetual techno dings. “Put your filthy hands all over me” he urges. The former N’Sync front man goes on to brag about a party that won’t end until 6:00 am. I’m feeling a new aged George Michael vibe here. He played it smart with this one, because it has a very current and universal sound.
The Tennessee native just may be dabbling into Country music more on this album. The clips from his album trailer have a more mature, Pop sound and less of a Hip Hop inspired feel. Either way, fans will surely be ready for his Half Time performance and the new music. Check out the futuristic music video for “Filthy” below. What are your thoughts on it? Would you say Bump It or Dump It?
