“[I'm trying] not to give too much away. You know I like surprising the fans. That little piece of footage is from a documentary that we sort of started working on throughout the making of the album, which started last June.”
Set to drop on March 19th, Justin recently unveiled the album’s official artwork and tracklisting, which is a little short, so we’re hoping a deluxe version will be released soon.
The album is currently preceded by its lead single “Suit & Tie,” which features Jay-Z and Timbaland. After debuting at #84 on the Billboard Hot 100, the song jumped to #4 in its second week of being released.
He also says we can expect a similar flow as 2006’s FutureSex/LoveSounds:
“Some of what we touched on on the last album with the interludes and pieces that would connect one song to another song, we’ve really gone deep on that part of the process. A lot of the songs are really two-in-one.”
He also explained the album’s title:
“I was playing some of the stuff for my friends and they would come in and out of the studio and I’d say, ‘What do you think of this?’ And my best friend said, ‘This is music that you can see,’ and for some reason that stuck with me.”
Justin’s return to music, which kicked off during the Super Bowl, will continue with a 2013 Grammys performance this Sunday, February 10th.
