Grammy-winning artist Justin Timberlake returns with a poignant reflection on heartbreak in his latest single, “Drown,” a compelling preview of his upcoming album, Everything I Thought It Was.

Co-written by Timberlake alongside Kenyon Dixon, Amy Allen, and the song’s co-producers Louis Bell and Cirkut, “Drown” delves into the emotional aftermath of unrequited love. In the soul-stirring track, Timberlake grapples with feelings of disappointment and betrayal, both towards his partner and himself, for overlooking warning signs.

As Timberlake croons, “You showed me exactly who you are / And I should’ve believed it / You left me alone, out in the dark / With all of your demons,” listeners are drawn into a narrative of introspection and raw vulnerability, underscored by evocative lyricism and Timberlake’s trademark vocal prowess.

Set to feature on Timberlake’s forthcoming album, Everything I Thought It Was, scheduled for release on March 15 via RCA Records, “Drown” joins previously released singles such as “Selfish” and “Sanctified,” featuring Tobe Nwigwe. Notably, Timberlake introduced “Sanctified” during a memorable performance on Saturday Night Live last month.

To coincide with the album’s release, Timberlake will embark on the extensive Forget Tomorrow World Tour, commencing on April 29 in Vancouver, British Columbia. The tour will traverse North America throughout the spring and summer months, with stops in major cities including Seattle, Las Vegas, Atlanta, and Miami, culminating in a finale on July 9 in Lexington, Kentucky.

Following the North American leg, Timberlake will launch the Europe/U.K. tour segment on July 26 in Krakow, Poland, spanning 13 cities and concluding in Décines, France, on Sept. 6. Tickets for the Europe/U.K. tour dates will be available for purchase starting March 1.

The tour will resume with a second North American leg in the fall, encompassing cities such as Brooklyn, Washington, D.C., Toronto, and Orlando, before concluding on Dec. 16 in Indianapolis, Indiana. Fans can secure tickets for the North American shows via Timberlake’s official website.
