Justin Bieber’s fifth album has been teased by his manager Scooter Braun

He's hinted at a big 2019 for the pop star

Justin Bieber‘s upcoming fifth album has been teased online by his manager Scooter Braun, who suggests that the record will arrive this year.

The Canadian pop star’s last full-length, ‘Purpose’, was released back in 2015. Reviewing the LP – which spawned the hit singles ‘Sorry’, ‘What Do You Mean?’, and ‘Love Yourself’ – NME concluded: “It’s not quite redemption – only time will tell if he’ll curb the recklessness – but it’s certainly a start at reinvention.”

Now, Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun has hinted that the follow-up could be unveiled soon. Posting on Twitter, he said: “2019 is gonna be a wild one. I just feel it.”


In a now-deleted tweet, Braun added: “JB5!?”, followed by a range of emojis. Check out a screenshot of the post below (via JOE)

Although further details on the upcoming release are not known, it was reported last year that Bieber’s new material could be inspired by his faith, after the star became heavily involved in a leading Evangelical church.

“Justin is on the lookout for songs which really reflect where he is in his life in terms of spirituality,’ a source told The Sun.


“He has always been religious but the last two years have seen him grow closer to the Hillsong Church and it has changed his entire life. He has a totally different outlook now.”

Meanwhile, Justin Bieber recently confirmed his marriage to Hailey Baldwin – following news of the pair’s engagement last summer. The singer shared an image of himself and Baldwin, along with the caption: “My wife is awesome.”




Wolf Alice to “start recording new album next month,” says label manager

“I feel like this is going to be a great expression"
