Timbaland and Danja Produced Justin Timberlake’s New Song “Filthy”
Almost out of nowhere, Justin Timberlake's announced his new album, Man of the Woods, and now, we know when we can expect the first single from the project, the name of it and who it will be produced by.
The new track is called "Filthy," and it's all set to drop this Friday (Jan. 5). The track will be produced by Timbaland and Danja, two ultra-versatile producers who defined the sound of much of mid-2000s hip-hop. Timbo and Danja have both collabed with Timberlake at pivotal points of his career, producing tracks for Justified and FutureSex/LoveSounds respectively. All three artists co-wrote the song along with James Fauntleroy and Larrance Dopson.
The Mark Romanek-directed music video for "Filthy," which is described as being "dance-heavy," "colorful" and "futuristic," is set to feature Timberlake playing the role of an inventor presenting one of his latest creations to the world. Sounds epic.
Three more new videos helmed by three different directors will be released after the one for "Filthy" as the singer heads into the release of Man of the Woods, which is all set to drop on Feb. 2. That's just two days before Timberlake takes the stage for the Pepsi Super Bowl LII Halftime Show on Sun., Feb. 4.
Target is dropping an exclusive version of the album featuring some unique cover art, a poster and a digital download code. They will also be serving up a special vinyl edition of the album. Dope.
Pre-sale for the album will begin Friday (Jan. 5).
