Justin Bieber, the Canadian pop-star, is set to debut his long-awaited new album on 13 November 2015, tweeted Tidal, a video streaming service run by rap star Jay-Z.
This will be Bieber’s fourth album and comes after a long hiatus of over three years. His last album, Believe, was way back in 2012. His earlier hit songs include ‘Boyfriend’, ‘Baby’, ‘Where are You Now’, ‘As Long As You Love Me’ among many others.
However, in the last couple of years, the young singer-celebrity has been in the news for a lot of unpleasant spats with regulatory authorities. One was that of a rash driving incident in his Lamborghini in Miami Beach without a valid license and under influence. Another one was of him throwing eggs at his neighbor’s house in Los Angeles. Recently he received a reprieve for his alleged assault on a photographer as the judge canceled an arrest bid for the incident.
In the background of such infamy, the release of his new album in November is expected to give the Canadian pop-star and his huge fan following (consisting mainly of mid-adolescence females calling themselves beliebers), a big reason to smile. In a few interviews to different magazines earlier on, Bieber announced that the album has not yet been given a name; however, it is a very personal work. His words were that his fans will actually be able to find the place where his heart lies when they listen to his new album.
The presumed first song of the album, ‘What do you mean?’ was purportedly strummed by Ed Sheeran, the English singer on his acoustic guitar and released on social media recently. This song is to be released on 28 August 2015. For the new yet unnamed album, Bieber has collaborated with electronic producer Skrillex, rap singer Kanye West and the well-known producer Rick Rubin famous for his hip hop acts such as Run-DMC and Beastie Boys.
The ‘Boyfriend’ singer was all praise for Skrillex for making his voice reach higher pitches to achieve a futuristic effect. The sounds in the new album ares said to be very similar to ‘Where are you now’, a hit single he made in collaboration with Diplo and Skrillex in 2010. The sounds are supposed to have a freshness, newness and coolness that are bound to keep his fans happy and peppy, said Justin Bieber.
