It’s been a rough few years for Justin Bieber fans who have been waiting patiently for something—anything!—music-related from the singer. There have been little crumbs—collabs with Billie Eilish, Ed Sheeran and Dan + Shay, to name a few—but overall it’s been quite the dry spell since 2015’s Purpose album and the cancelled world tour. Well, fear not, Beliebers—the drought is over.
Your fave is making 2020 his year with not only new music dropping the first week of January, but a 10-part YouTube Originals docu-series on how he made the album and his journey since the last one. Cue dancehall airhorn sound drop!
The series, called Justin Bieber: Seasons, will chart the making of his new record along with all the life events that informed his process and songwriting. The doc covers the time after he cancelled the end of his Purpose tour to focus on his mental health, dark moments over the past four years, returning to the studio and never-before-seen footage of his wedding to Hailey Bieber (more shots of that incredible Virgil Abloh dress!) all told through interviews with the Biebs and his closest friends and collaborators.

All that exclusive content isn’t even the best part—the BEST part is that everyone can check it out on YouTube when the series premieres on January 27. (Before, YouTube Originals were only accessible for Premium subscribers, but the Biebs’ doc will be free for all every Monday and Wednesday.) We are already adding into our iCals—we have plans with our dear friend Justin Bieber.
The first-look trailer offers a glimpse into what we can expect from the series including new music, intimate interviews and super-adorable moments between Justin and Hailey. If that’s not enough to sustain you until the end of the month, JB is also sharing a personal message after the ball drop tonight on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2020. Yes, the very first moments of the new decade will include a Justin Bieber appearance. It’s poetic.
This truly feels like a downpour after a four-year drought. In addition to the promo and announcement December 31, JB has also teased music releases January 3 and 4. Welcome back, Biebs.
