Justin Timberlake may consider himself a “Man of the Woods” these days, but he’ll be hitting the town this November.
Timberlake’s tour has sold 450,000 tickets so far, and many concerts across the country are already sold out. American Express members can buy tickets early, from now until 5 p.m. on Feb. 18. Members of The Tennessee Kids Fan Club can also purchase pre-sale seats.
Man of the Woods is Timberlake’s fifth solo studio album, and his first release in nearly five years. Much of the album was produced by longtime collaborators Danja, Timbaland, and The Neptunes (Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo). The album has received steadily average reviews, but the initially released singles, Filthy, Supplies, and Say Something, indicate that Timberlake fans will be satiated by tracks that deliver his signature style.
Variety’s Chris Willman summed up the album’s eclectic mix of forest sanctuary and banging beats, saying, “It’s the utterly weird boldness of Timberlake figuratively dragging Pharrell and Danja into the middle of a frosty field that makes the album memorable. This is undeniably the real him right now — funkster, family man, firewalker.”
Timberlake paid homage to his family in several places throughout Man of the Woods. The album title is in honor of his son Silas, whose name means “of the forest.” Wife Jessica Biel and son Silas made uncredited vocal appearances on several tracks on the album.
