Justin Bieber's Purpose is nearly upon us, and it gives us all a welcome break from the other reason why Justin Bieber is in news.
After teasing the title of the upcoming album last week, the 21-year-old superstar dropped the mother load today, October 9, and unwrapped the official cover art on Instagram and his other social media accounts, first with calligraphy designed by the Los Angeles-based street artist, Retna, whose images will feature on the record.
Justin's Purpose album officially touches down on November 13. Anticipation over the Canadian's new music is at an all-time high amid a successful comeback after two difficult years, largely achieved by two terrific hits "Where Are U Now?" and the chart-topping mega-hit "What Do You Mean?," both of which will be on the album.
Justin Bieber fans, most of whom are part of the star's 40.6 million followers on the photo-sharing site, took to Twitter in excitement as the Biebs rolled out the giant black and white cover in nine posts.
Eventually, the tattooed singer was revealed, shirtless with his head bowed seemingly in thought, and his hands in near-prayer with white lines and symbols artfully placed across the image.
Once the collage came together, the heartthrob posted three smaller images of the same artwork but with a blue, white, and black background for the text at the back. Here is one of the those images.
