The tracklist announcement for Justin Timberlake's upcoming fifth album Man of the Woods provided much entertainment in the form of pure speculation: Is "Flannel" really about wearing flannel in the woods, presumably while you chop wood? Is "Livin' Off the Land" an Of Mice and Men retelling? Do the titular "Supplies" suggest that this isolated cabin in which he's living is far enough away from society that he needs to make regular runs to the general store for necessities?
We'll still have to wait for the answers to those first two questions. But on Thursday (January 18), at least we found out that "Supplies" is actually more about stockpiling for the (presumed forthcoming) end of the world. In the new bizarre, fever-dream video, Timberlake taps into protest culture with help from Pharrell to reveal that we're in the middle of some bad shit right now.
