Justin Bieber's manager has denied the singer's claim that he will retire from the music industry after releasing his next album.

Scooter Braun told ITN, via the Independent, that Bieber was "just kidding" when he recently told Power 106 FM radio station in Los Angeles that his next studio LP could be his last, stating: "The new album... I'm actually retiring. I'm retiring man. I'm just gonna take some time. I think I'm probably going to quit music."

Braun said of Bieber's 2014 plans: "Next year he's taking a break just to make music and relax, take some time for himself for the first time since he was 12".

Bieber's new album, 'Journals', is set for release on December 23. He has recently been releasing a new track each week under the umbrella of his Music Mondays series, and also collaborated with Chance The Rapper on a track titled 'Confident'.
