The album will feature longtime collaborators the Neptunes (Pharrell and Chad Hugo) and Timbaland, along with Alicia Keys and country artist Chris Stapleton. In his press release, Timberlake stated that the “new material explores storytelling inspired by his son, his wife, and his personal journey from Memphis to where he is today,” reports Spin. It might not be too much of a stretch to say that Man of the Woods may have some country influences.
