Five years after his last album Purpose was released in 2015, Justin Bieber is all set to make a comeback with his new album slated for release in January 2020. Purpose was ranked the No.1 album, the sixth for the singer, on Billboard 200.
Yummy, the first song of the untitled album, will be released on January 3. The 25-year-old singer broke the news on his Instagram account sharing the hashtag #Bieber2020.
Earlier, the singer had been posting cryptic messages on his Instagram account about the new single. On Monday (December 23, 2019), Bieber posted two pictures of the word Tomorrow along with his image in black and white. He captioned all the three posts with dates: December 24, December 31, January 3 ... 2020.
Bieber, who was on a break from music since 2017 after her cancelled the last 14 dates of the Purpose World Tour, appeared as a guest vocalist on Ed Sheeran's I Don't Care and a remix of Billie Eilish's Bad Guy earlier this year.
Teaser for Yummy released on Christmas eve
Though the name of the album was not revealed, fans were given a glimpse of the song. In the teaser, Bieber, wearing his trademark woolly hat coupled with a baggy hoodie is seen walking around a trailer park area resembling a desert-like landscape while contemplating his moves.
The Canadian singer, who married Hailey Baldwin in September, does a voiceover in the clipping. In the clip, he can be heard saying: "As humans, we are imperfect. My past, my mistakes, all the things I have been through. I believe I am right where I am supposed to be and God has me right where he wants me. I feel like this is different from previous albums just because of where I am in my life. I'm excited to perform on the tour. We all have different stories, I'm just excited to share mine. It's the music that I've loved the most out of anything I've done."
In the 1.20-minute-long clip, Bieber also gives a peek at the lyrics of his next single, which goes, 'Could you be with me forever? Every time I go the wrong way you turn me back around. When you come around me, do me like you miss me even though you've been with me. Yeah you've got than yummy yum that yummy yum.'
