Justin Bieber's Next Album Due Out November 13: Sources
The new full-length, which will include the forthcoming single "What Do You Mean?," will apparently be out before Thanksgiving.
Justin Bieber’s highly anticipated next album has a release date, it seems.
The as-yet-untitled follow-up to 2012’s Believe will be released on Friday, November 13, sources tell Billboard. The rumored release date first popped up earlier on Tuesday (Aug. 11), and Billboard is hearing that Nov. 13 is indeed the target of Bieber’s full-length return. Official word from Bieber's camp has yet to come, and reps for the pop superstar have not responded for comment.
Last month, Bieber announced that a new single from his next album, titled “What Do You Mean?,” will be released on Aug. 28. Since then, Bieber's famous friends -- including Big Sean, Little Mix and Shaquille O'Neal -- have helped tease the single release on social media.
Bieber described “What Do You Mean?” as “uptempo” and “summery” when he first discussed the album on Ryan Seacrest’s syndicated radio show last month. “Girls are often flip-floppy. They say something, and then they mean something else,” Bieber said of the song’s lyrics. “What do you mean? … I don’t really know, that’s why I’m asking.”
Bieber is set to make a special performance at Billboard’s inaugural Hot 100 Music Festival at Jones Beach, N.Y. on Aug. 23, and will play “Where Are Ü Now” alongside Skrillex. Click here for more info on the lineup and tickets.
