Attention, Beliebers: Justin Bieber has new music on the way! Four years after the release of his Purpose album, the 25-year-old singer announced he’d be releasing a new album and docuseries in 2020 — with his single “Yummy” kicking everything off on Jan. 3 and his Seasons YouTube documentary dropping on Jan. 27. In the introspective trailer, Bieber also confirmed he’d begin a five-month nationwide tour in May.
Bieber still has yet to officially announce the name of the album, though TMZ believes he may have hinted at it when he shared a photo of his new “Forever” tattoo on Instagram. He also got the word “Purpose” inked on him in 2015 to celebrate the release of his fourth studio album. According to the outlet, Bieber’s album will reportedly include collaborations with Kehlani, Post Malone, and Travis Scott, and based on a timestamp in the first episode of the Seasons docuseries, it looks like he’ll be dropping it in February. In a scene from May 2019, it says, “9 months until album release,” under the date, and according to my math skills, that puts us at February 2020.
Back in October, Bieber told fans in a now-deleted Instagram post that if he got 20 million likes on the post that he would release an album before Christmas. Given that the post was deleted, there’s no way of telling if the post actually got all those likes, though something tells me it did. That same month, Bieber also posted the word “R&Bieber” on Instagram with a caption that simply read, “……………🎥👀🎶.” Oh, and his team coincidentally filed legal documents to try to trademark “R&Bieber” “for entertainment services in the nature of live musical performances and production of sound recordings,” as well as merchandise and film.
“I feel like this is different than the previous albums just because of where I’m at in my life,” Bieber said in the trailer. He added, “We all have different stories. I’m just excited to share mine.”
