Justin Bieber has revealed that this holiday season he's going to release an acoustic album. He made the announcement via Twitter.
"Curious...What is your favorite song on MY WORLD and MY WORLD 2.0?? If you could remix any song with another artist which would it be? And who would you want me to duet with?? and on which song?? Thanks," he initially tweeted before spilling a few more beans about the forthcoming release.
In addition to old tunes, it seems this album will feature a brand-new song as well. "hey dankanter I think it's time to make an UNPLUGGED album for the fans for the holidays....or maybe we already did...hmmmm," he then tweeted to Dan Kanter, the singer's musical director and guitarist. "Maybe we need to give everybody an UNPLUGGED acoustic album with that new song I cut in Hawaii for the holidays...thoughts???"
Bieber, who plays acoustic guitar during many of his live performances, then revealed that he has already recorded songs for the album. Further information, including the release date and the album's title, was not available at press time. "So I'm thinking about breaking out the acoustic guitar and having some fun... ...so an UNPLUGGED album for the HOLIDAYS????" he wrote. "Listening to tracks from the new UNPLUGGED acoustic album. feeling really good about it. dankanter u excited. back to the roots."
Kanter tweeted about the vibe of the album. "@justinbieber Loving the percussion... Cajones and congas!" he teased. "Definitely an influence from our travels around the world!"
At the VMAs, Bieber revealed that he is working on an album of all-new music as well. "[It'll] probably [come out] fourth quarter next year," he said. "Drake is gonna be on that album; I'm not sure [who else]. I'm gonna ask him if he can get [Lil] Wayne on there."
