Justin Timberlake drops "Filthy" music video, 'Man of the Woods' tracklist

A digi-funk track led by a dancing robot.

In the first visual accompanying his Man of the Woods album, Justin Timberlake takes on the role of bespectacled, Steve Jobs-resembling presenter at the "Pan-Asian Deep Learning Conference" in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Directed by Mark Romanek, it takes place in the future, the year 2028, and follows JT showing off his new robot and its skills. It can build, do yoga poses, pour drinks, kick a ball and, most impressively, mimic his dance moves (from moonwalking to pirouetting) and even take on his sex symbol persona.

The track, produced by Timbaland, Danja, and Timberlake himself, drives a digi-funk beat home, and recalls the singer's FutureSex/LoveSounds era. The title was spawned from the chorus' first lyrics: "Look, put your filthy hands all over me / And no, this ain't the clean version." Watch and listen below.

Timberlake also took to social media to reveal the tracklist and, as teased, it does appear to feature Alicia Keys and country singer Chris Stapleton (as their initials appear next to songs "Morning Light" and "Say Something," respectively).

The 16-track LP appears to only feature those two collaborators, one interlude, and a handful of titles that seem to play into the project's hometown inspiration: "Flannel," "Breeze off the Pond," "Living off the Land." But, like "Filthy," it sounds as if fans who want more funk may find that in "Midnight Summer Jam" and "Sauce."
