Justin Bieber first piqued the curiosity of millions earlier this month when he announced that he would be releasing an acoustic album at the top of 2013. Now, after nearly of month of nail-biting anticipation, the Biebs has finally released the track list for the slowed-down Believe album.
After late nights in the studio with manager Scooter Braun and Ed Sheeran, Bieber announced on Twitter (to his now more than 32 million followers) that he finally finished up the album on Thursday night. He got fans even more hyped when he tweeted out a link to the iTunes track list. The list includes not only fan favorites like “As Long As You Love Me” and “Boyfriend,” but also the mysterious “Track 8.”
And continuing in his characteristic mystery, Bieber added that there will be two extra songs on the final album, but fans will have to wait to hear what they are. Beiber told his followers that it includes one “brand new song,” but he wouldn’t give any more details.
“8 wasnt enough. had to write some more new ones,” Bieber tweeted Thursday night. “now im putting out 10 SONGS on #BELIEVEacoustic .”
While some of the album remains shrouded in mystery, the singer did give his Beliebers a hint as to what to expect from the tracks — both named and unnamed.
“every song has a new guitar arrangement..1 w/ piano,” he wrote, before referencing the original name he used to post videos on YouTube before he was discovered. “everything feels new and #KIDRAUHL – u guys r gonna like it.”
The Believe track list:
“As Long As You Love Me”
