Usher has announced full details of his new album 'Looking 4 Myself'.

The album, which is the former teen heartthrob's seventh full length effort, features collaborations with N.E.R.D's Pharrell Williams, Rick Ross and Empire Of The Sun's Luke Steele.

Speaking to NME previously about the album, the rapper said he'd been inspired to do something different by visiting Coachella Festival.

He said: "Empire Of The Sun I thought, 'Man what an incredible sound', there was something just fresh about it. And when we started working on 'Looking 4 Myself' - in fact, the week that I wrote and produced the record, it was right after we’d come back from Coachella. And having gone to Coachella in California, it really kind of gave us an opportunity to have a restart, because that was certainly a different experience for me."

He continued: "I said, 'I love the feeling that we have here and the different styles of music, let’s find a way to make an album that works everywhere, that works here, works for my fans, works for the classic audience, works for my pop audience, and that's why you feel you're hearing this eclectic mixture of music'."
