Earlier this week, Justin Timberlake announced his fifth solo album to date, Man of the Woods. In a teaser video, the pop sensation is pictured in his home state of Tennessee and describes the album’s intentions, inspired by “my son, my wife, my family, but more so than any other album I’ve ever written, where I’m from.” Later in the clip, a female voice, presumably his wife’s, described the album as “mountains, trees, campfires, like wild west, like now.” Today, Timberlake reveals the first track, and it has nothing to do with any of those.“Filty” features Justin Timberlake in a large conference hall, delivering a presentation with a robot. The robot mirrors Timberlake in demonstrating its fluid ability to move, shake, wow, and inspire. With heavy electronic beats and gritty synths, the song is accompanied by a visually pleasing video directed by Mark Romanek. The song was co-written and co-produced by Timberlake, Timbaland, and Danja. James Fauntleroy and Larrance Dopson also received writing credits for “Filthy”, which reveals an exciting new direction for Timberlake–especially considering the dichotomous sounds of the album’s teaser video.Timberlake will release three more songs and videos from the album ahead of its February 2nd release–two days before he headlines the Super Bowl LII Halftime Show. The forthcoming releases will each have their own individual style and color from three different directors, according to CoS.
