Justin Timberlake Explains The Meaning Of ‘Man Of The Woods’, Tells Fans: ‘Stop Telling Me I’m Making A Country Album’

Birthday boy Justin Timberlake — celebrating his 37th on Wednesday — took to Instagram to thank fans for their b-day wishes, and also dropped a small info-bomb about the title of his just-released album, Man of the Woods.

In the video, Timberlake is getting a haircut in advance of his upcoming Super Bowl halftime show performance, and while joking around offers an explanation for the title.

“By the way, the album is named after my son,” he says of his two-year-old progeny, Silas. “His name means ‘of the woods’ – so stop telling me I’m making a country album!”

For anyone wondering, Timberlake is indeed correct. In Latin, the name “Silas” is translated as “of the forest,” clearing up both the album’s outdoorsy title and refuting assumptions the album marks the former *N Sync member’s foray into country music.

Fans will be seeing Timberlake take to the biggest stage of his career (for the third time!) when he headlines the halftime show at Super Bowl LII on Sunday, February 4.
