Four years after the “20/20 Experience World Tour,” Justin Timberlake has revealed his next album and teased an upcoming tour.

The singer made the announcement with a minute-long video featuring new music and an appearance from Pharrell. Dubbed Man Of The Woods, the LP is set to drop Feb. 2, two days before Timberlake’s Super Bowl halftime performance.

“This album is really inspired by my son, my wife, my family, but more so than any album I’ve ever written, where I’m from,” Timberlake says in the video. “And it’s personal.” 

The album announcement arrives just days after JT seemingly teased new tour dates. Ticketmaster recently added an alleged in-the-round seating map for a March 13 Timberlake concert at Toronto’s Air Canada Centre, and then swiftly removed it.

The “SexyBack” singer’s last tour, in support of his The 20/20 Experience 1 and 2 albums, spanned several continents and lasted more than a year. That outing raked in more than $215 million, with nearly every show selling out, according to Pollstar’s box office reports.

Some of the highest grossing shows from that tour included sets at 14,951-capacity United Center in Chicago ($3.7 million), 19,420-capacity Madison Square Garden in New York City ($3.6 million) and London’s 28,958-capacity The O2 ($4.3 million). The outing also saw JT visit several international markets, including Moscow, Abu Dhabi and Tel Aviv, where he played at

The first leg of the tour also featured then up-and-comer The Weeknd.

JT’s Super Bowl set marks 14 years since he was part of Janet Jackson’s infamous “wardrobe malfunction” during her halftime show.

Pollstar reached out to Timberlake’s representatives for comment but did not receive a response at press time.
