Filthy is the first single from Justin’s upcoming fifth studio album, Man of the Woods. 

After speculating earlier this week that Justin Timberlake’s highly-anticipated comeback album may be country-tinged, today, the former NSYNC star has proved our suspicions completely false with the release of his futuristic, funk-filled track Filthy.

The music video – directed by Mark Romanek – follows a Steve Jobs-esque JT as he reveals a prototype of a dancing robot during a Malaysian learning conference. It’s set in 2028, so, yeah, futuristic.

Filthy is the first single from JT’s upcoming fifth studio album, Man of the Woods, which will be released 2 February, two days before the star’s Super Bowl half-time show.

Earlier this week, he released a teaser for the record, which saw Justin roaming around in the woods, whilst wife Jessica Biel provided a deep, serious and thought-provoking voiceover in which she says: “It feels like mountains, trees, campfires, like Wild West but now.”

Can you blame us for thinking this was going to be his Joanne era?

Watch the music video for Filthy below.
