Justin Timberlake is set to release a new album next month, and judging from a video clip previewing the project, Timberlake’s homestate of Tennessee has a big influence on the new project.
The album, Man of the Woods, releases Feb. 2, with the project’s first single releasing Friday, Jan. 5.
“This album is really inspired by my son, my wife, my family but more so than any other album I’ve written, where I’m from. It’s personal,” Timberlake says in the trailer clip for the album. Timberlake is originally from Memphis, Tennessee, and in 2015, he purchased a home just outside of Nashville, in Leiper’s Fork. After his collaboration on “Drink You Away,” with Chris Stapleton at the 2015 CMA Awards, the song was promoted to country radio.
In September 2017, he headlined the third annual Pilgrimage Music and Cultural Festival in Franklin, Tennessee, after signing on as a partner and producer for the festival in 2016.
