People Are Roasting The Hell Out Of Justin Timberlake’s Rustic New Look

"Nobody wants Justin Timberlake's version of Joanne."

Welcome to 2018: Justin Timberlake now wears flannel.

Yesterday, the ‘SexyBack’ hitmaker announced he’d be dropping a new album this year, titled Man Of The Woods. People were buzzed about the album, sure — but it was the country-inspired, I’ve-Just-Listened-To-Bon-Iver artwork that had everyone intrigued.

Timberlake also released an album trailer, and it’s very in keeping with the new country theme — with plenty of shots of Justin gazing longingly at the sunset, cavorting with horses, and wandering through corn fields while wearing what appears to be a rug. You know, doing what country folk do.

In a voiceover, Timberlake explains that the new album is “inspired by my son, my wife, my family, but more so than any other album I’ve written, where I’m from – and it’s personal.”

His wife, actress Jessica Biel, contributes her own thoughts to what Man Of The Woods sounds like: “It feels like mountains, trees, campfires, like Wild West, right now,” she says.

Ah yes, that all important tree feel. I know I won’t listen to an album without it.

Predictably, the internet has roasted Timberlake to a bonfire cinder.

Watch the full trailer below. Timberlake’s new single, ‘Filthy’, is out this Friday.
