Justin Bieber is busy touring around the world right now, but he’s also currently working on material for his brand new album, due out this year, he says.
“Been writing alot of songs on the road,” he wrote on his Facebook page. “Excited to just get this music out later this year and record this summer. #BELIEVE #newmusic.”
That’s right, Beliebers. Justin has broken plenty of records in the last two years with ‘My World’ and ‘My World 2.0,’ and now he’s ready to raise the bar with his third solo album of fresh tunes.
Among others, Justin has been working on new songs with producer/songwriter Sean Garrett, who told Billboard that the 17-year-old’s forthcoming album would have an older sound.
“What we’re trying to do with Justin is to segue him into young adulthood,” he said. “The one great thing about Justin Bieber is the fact that his fans are going to grow with him. So we want all the fans that started out with him to still be intrigued and excited about him, but we want to also stretch out a little bit and make the fans that are 22-23 years old love Justin as well. When Justin Timberlake went from the last album of *N Sync to his first solo album — I want to say [we’re aiming for] that level. That’s the bar for the type of song, that level of ‘Cry Me a River,’ big records.”
In 2011, Justin became the first artist in nearly two decades to have four albums inside the Top 40 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. This includes his first two albums, as well as ‘My Words Acoustic’ and ‘Never Say Never: The Remixes.’
