After teasing his collaboration with country singer Chris Stapleton, Justin Timberlake has finally unleashed the video for his new song "Say Something." Coming ahead of his performance at the Super Bowl next week, and the release of his new album Man of the Woods, this latest track gives a further preview of what to expect of his forthcoming record.
Produced by Timbaland and Danja, "Say Something" is an interesting mix of sounds that lives up to the folksy title of the album a little more than previous singles "Filthy" and "Supplies." With a lot less going on in regards to the production, it's a lot more dependent on his vocals, too. As the song continues, Chris Stapleton joins the track alongside a choir.
The new Arturo Perez Jr.-directed video is a pretty bare affair, but it suits the simplistic and catchy track pretty well. Starting with Timberlake playing the beat on a drum machine, the camera follows him as he walks through a barren building. It's definitely a different approach than both his previous singles for the album, which featured some outlandish visuals, including a dancing robot. The reveal at the end as hundreds singing the song look down on Timberlake and Stapleton is huge in scope, matching the way the song goes from small to absolutely massive during its six-minute run time.
Timberlake previously collaborated with Stapleton when he performed a cover of George Jones' "Tennessee Whiskey" and Timberlake's own "Drink You Away" at the 2015 CMA Awards, receiving praise for how well they played off each other.
