Just two weeks after the release of his latest studio album, Justin Bieber has published in the last hours by surprise a new album with unreleased songs, the EP titled ‘Freedom’.
Six are the themes included in this recording that the Canadian artist announced through his social media with a message as sober as the cover that accompanies it: the screenshot of a mobile, completely blank, and with an open ‘app’ to take notes in which the name of the EP can be read.
The completely new cuts run through a calm, black and urban sound, between hip hop, r & b and atmospheric pop, and are constituted in all cases except one by collaborations with artists such as BEAM, Brandon Love and Chandler Moor, Judah Smith and Tori Kelly. The titles of the songs are, in this order: ‘Freedom’, ‘All She Wrote’, ‘We’re In This Together’, ‘Where You Go I Follow’, ‘Where Do I Fit In’ and ‘Afraid To Say ‘.
It was on March 19 when Bieber (London, 1994) published ‘Justice’, the album that in turn saw the light only a year after the previous ‘Changes’, with which he obtained three recent Grammy nominations, including Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Pop Solo Performance.
With this new release, the third in just over 12 months, the Canadian greatly intensifies his production rhythm in recent years, since he did not edit anything in the five years that followed the success of ‘Purpose’ (2015), a time in which he was focused above all on his personal recovery. Of ‘Justice’ he said that his purpose, “now that our planet suffers so much and humanity needs healing and also needs justice, is to provide comfort and make songs that people can connect with and feel less alone.”
