Justin Timberlake gets 'personal' in first album in five years

Timberlake says this album, titled "Man of the Woods", was inspired by his wife, son, and family.

For Timberlake, "personal" usually means something akin to using a Britney Spears lookalike in a video and implying she stepped out on him, so how this new style will pan out for the pop singer is anyone's guess.

Justin Timberlake and James Taylor play a duet in the kitchen at a party in Big Sky, Montana.

In an epic YouTube video, Timberlake treks through snow, wheat, and a lake to announce that Man of the Woods is coming on February 2 and the first song from the album releases this Friday (January 5).

Look, Justin, we've known you for a while now, and you're for sure not a "man of the woods".

Sources have said it meant a lot to her because she needed to prove to her fans that she can deliver a great performance live. While winter in NY is typically anything but warm, much warmer temperatures are usually in the forecast during New Years.

This will be the actor's first appearance at the Super Bowl since his 2004 halftime performance with Janet Jackson, which no one could ever forget. But while "Drink You Away" is a jam, it definitely leans more pop than country. In the short clip, the Tennessee native is out and about enjoying nature as we see a stampede of buffalos and other earthy imagery.

The video also features cameos from Timberlake's wife, actress Jessica Biel, longtime collaborator Pharrell Williams and his son.

"Pusher Love Girl" may be one of the most under-appreciated songs in Timberlake's catalog.

Timberlake hasn't released an album since 2013 when he dropped The 20/20 Experience and The 20/20 Experience - Part 2.
