More new music from Justin Bieber is on the way!
On social media, Justin revealed that he has a new song called "Lonely" coming out with Benny Blanco on Friday, October 16th. The star also shared a shot of what looks like it could be from the song's music video showing a younger version of Justin — side swept hair and all — in front of a vanity with his head down. The young Bieber is played by actor Jacob Tremblay.
In the post, Bieber tagged Blanco and Tremblay, as well as FINNEAS, which means Justin may have also collaborated with the star producer (which comes full circle as FINNEAS' sister Billie Eilish is the world's biggest Justin Bieber fan). Benny, Finneas and Jacob also all posted the same photo to their social media accounts.
Meanwhile, over on Justin's Instagram stories, the star also shared a short snippet of "Lonely," which features a very somber-sounding piano melody.
"Lonely" follows Bieber's most recent single "Holy," which features Chance The Rapper, and his most recent album Changes, which he released at the very beginning of the year. The star is set to embark on his rescheduled "Justin Bieber World Tour" next year in June 2021. The trek stops in arenas in cities including New York City, Boston, Atlanta, Chicago and more, and $1 from each ticket purchased will be donated to the Bieber Foundation, which supports mental health wellness.
Justin is also set to perform on Saturday Night Live on Saturday, October 17th while Issa Rae takes on hosting duties.
