The 36-year-old star has unveiled the first official single and music video off his highly anticipated new album, Man of the Woods. "Filthy," the uber-danceable song, was co-written and co-produced by Timberlake, Timbaland and Danja, with additional writing credits from James Fautleroy and Larrance Dopson.
In the futuristic video, Timberlake plays a modern inventor presenting his latest creation to the world: a humanoid robot that bears a striking resemblance to JT himself. The robot starts off performing simple tasks, but by the end is moving in an impressively human-like manner -- as Timberlake's take on Steve Jobs instructs it from backstage -- even dirty dancing with the presentation models as the audience applauds. Directed by Mark Romanek, it marks the pair's second collaboration following 2016's feel-good "Can't Stop the Feeling" video.

Man of the Woods, Timberlake's fourth solo album, available for pre-order now, is slated for a Feb. 2 release. The full-length features collaborations with The Neptunes, Timbaland, Chris Stapleton and Alicia Keys, and is being touted in a press release as Timberlake's "most ambitious album to date, both sonically and lyrically." In a video announcing the project on social media, the Memphis-born star said that the album was inspired by his wife, Jessica Biel, their son, 2-year-old Silas, and his hometown roots.
In the lead-up to the album's release, Timberlake will debut three additional music videos weekly beginning on Jan. 18.
Meanwhile, Timberlake is also gearing up to headline the Pepsi Super Bowl LII Halftime Show on Feb. 4. There has been much fan speculation about what kind of surprises he could have in store for the big show, including an *NSYNC reunion and/or an appearance from Janet Jackson after the infamous wardrobe malfunction that marred the duo's 2004 performance.
