Should we call them Staple-lake? Or maybe Timber-ton?
Either way, I’ve been waiting for this compilation for EVER!
Ever since Chris Stapleton and Justin Timberlake delivered that incredible duet at the 2015 CMA Awards, I’ve been asking all the Gods I can think of for the pair to work together again.
Well, Timberlake recently announced a new album – Man of the Woods…
and it’s fittingly due for release on February 2nd, just two days before Justin headlines the halftime show at Super Bowl LII.
A press release describes the album:
Man of the Woods marks Timberlake’s most ambitious album to date, both sonically and lyrically. Combining the sounds of traditional American rock with the modern influences of collaborators The Neptunes, Timbaland, Chris Stapleton, and Alicia Keys, this new material explores storytelling inspired by his son, his wife, and his personal journey from Memphis to where he is today.
YES, Chris Stapleton, YES!
While we don’t know the name of the song yet…I can’t wait. A first taste of what’s coming on the album will drop tomorrow(Jan 5th).
And you may want to keep Justin’s new project in the back of your mind, Timberlake has been shifting towards the Country genre for awhile now!
To help tide you by…here’s that performance that made Stapleton a household name from a couple of years ago!
