It’s back to the old west for Justin Timberlake in his new album “Man of the Woods” – dropping February 2. In the special sneak-peek teaser trailer released today, we see manly man Justin in some Lumineers-meets-Revenant leather and flannel and blanket-as-coats as wife Jessica coos about her hubby’s new sound in a VO, saying:
“It feels like mountains, trees, campfires. Like Wild West… but now.”
Jezebel says it all looks like a Jeep Cherokee commercial, which is completely spot-on, and points out it also seems like “wilderness survival as a cool marketing aesthetic.” HA!
But on the plus side: We hear a number of songs that have that trademark Justinian feeling of super-hits – and I did find myself humming along – so between this and his upcoming Super Bowl appearance next month, brace yourself for another Timberlake pop tsunami coming our way in 2018.
Watch the trailer below. Just be prepared for lots of “Christ-on-the-cross” poses and sexy “suddenly looking up” shots.
