Justin Timberlake Maintains A Funky Groove With New Single, "Filthy"

And now, Justin Timberlake, 36, is bringing "filthy" back with his hot new song.

Pop singer and heartthrob for many women, Justin Timberlake has finally dropped his first single from his upcoming and most teased album Man of the Woods.

The concept of the video is pretty easy to grasp too, with JT playing a Steve Jobs-like figure impressing a robotics conference a decade from now with a robot that does his moves.

Justin Timberlake has finally returned with a new song, "Filthy".


The clip has been directed by Mark Romanek (One Hour Photo, Never Let Me Go and Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" video).

Co-written and produced by Timbaland and Danja, Filthy is a bedroom-ready slow jam as its title suggests, punctuated by squalling, metallic synth warps and a thick, gloppy bass line. Not only is he slated to perform at the Super Bowl Halftime Show, but he recently announced his new album, Man of the Woods.

"This is a song called Filthy by Justin Timberlake". It's quite a change from the urban, white-shirt, black-tie look we know from his "FUTURESEX/LOVESOUND" days. He worked with his frequent collaborators Timbaland and Pharrell (via The Neptunes) on the album, in addition to Alicia Keys and Chris Stapleton.
