The singer has announced his sixth studio album, available March 19. He revealed the cover art while explaining the inspiration behind his latest body of work.
“In a time when there’s so much wrong with this broken planet, we all crave healing—and justice—for humanity,” said Bieber. “In creating this album, my goal is to make music that will provide comfort; to make songs that people can relate to, and connect to, so they feel less alone. Suffering, injustice and pain can leave people feeling helpless.”
Suffering, injustice and pain can leave people feeling helpless. Music is a great way of reminding each other that we aren’t alone. Music can be a way to relate to one another and connect with one another
He hopes to bring healing through his music. “Music is a great way of reminding each other that we aren’t alone. Music can be a way to relate to one another and connect with one another,” he added. “I know that I cannot simply solve injustice by making music, but I do know that if we all do our part by using our gifts to serve this planet, and each other, that we are that much closer to being united. This is me doing a small part. My part. I want to continue the conversation of what justice looks like so we can continue to heal.”
Justice, which follows 2020’s Changes, has already spawned a trio of singles including “Holy” with Chance the Rapper, “Lonely” featuring Benny Blanco, and “Anyone,” which all currently reside in the Top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Ahead of the album’s release, Bieber will take the stage at Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards, airing live on March 13.
