Justin Timberlake is back. After releasing the audio of his new song Filthy, the singer-songwriter has released the official music video for the electro dance song.

Filthy serves as the lead single from Justin’s upcoming fifth studio album, Man of the Woods, and the song was written and produced by Timberlake, Timbaland, and Danja, with additional songwriting from James Fauntleroy, and Larrance Dopson.

Though the song was released on January 5, it won’t hit adio until January 9, 2018.

The futuristic music video, which reminds me of Taylor Swift’s …Ready for It, finds Justin playing an inventor introducing his new work, a robot, to the public.

As a character inspired by Steve Jobs, Timberlake takes the stage at the Pan-Asian Deep Learning Conference in 2028 and debuts this new robot. The robot also reminds me of the big robot Michael Jackson turned into at the end of Moonwalker, and the dance moves help a lot as well.

In the dance-centric visual, the artificial intelligence machine displays dance moves while being remotely manipulated by Timberlake:
