Justin Timberlake says his two-and-a-half-year-old son ‘Silas’ inspired his album title “Man of the Woods,” after Justin decided to find out what his son’s name meant.
He said, “I literally just went on Google [and searched] ‘the meaning of the name Silas.’ It sent me to this site, and it said [it’s] of Latin origin, meaning ‘man of the woods.'”
He named Silas after his grandfather and his great-grandfather. His parents divorced when he was young, so his grandfather was very much a father figure.
The album comes out February 2nd. He just released a video for “Supplies.”
