The 27-year-old artist shared a photo of a cork board that boasted more than 15 track names, while providing a glimpse at his creative process.
He has been working tirelessly in the studio to perfect his sixth record, ahead of its March 19 debut, even recently returning home from Paris where he shot a music video for one of his songs.
The purported track names of Justice were individually laid out on notecards as he tried to lock down the song order.
Based on the cards, it appears the album will boast an intro track and an interlude, and the record will kick off with Too Much and finish with Lonely.
All of the titles seemed to reflect transformative things in his life: his marriage with Hailey, love of God and the demons he’s battled in the past.
He shared the album artwork ahead of its impending release, while also providing insight as to the meaning behind the name, preaching a message of ‘healing and justice for humanity.’
‘My goal is to make music that will provide comfort, to make songs that people can relate to and connect to so they feel less alone. Suffering, injustice and pain can leave people feeling helpless. Music is a great way of reminding each other that we aren’t alone,’ he wrote.
While many were touched by his heartfelt message and desire to ‘continue the conversation of what justice looks like,’ others were less thrilled about his album – namely the record label and management of the French electronic duo Justice.
Justin had posted a doodle of the album title in a notebook, revealing that he had sketched his ideal graphic by hand, the ‘t’ being a cross to reflect his devout faith.
Upon sharing the image, it was apparent to both the original Justice and their many lifelong fans that the graphic looked to be a straight copy of the band’s logo who has been around since 2003.
It turns out that Justin had actually been in contact with the duo’s graphic designer, Justice’s management team giving a statement about the matter to Spin.
‘Bieber’s team emailed us in May of 2020, asking to be looped in with Justice’s graphic designer to discuss a logo. We tried to set up a call between Bieber’s team and our designer, but the call was never completed and the conversation ended there.
‘No one ever mentioned an album called Justice or a logo that says Justice. The first time we saw anything about it was the announcement.’
Bieber’s team never responded to the claims, but have seemingly not doctored the album art since its debut on February 26.
