Justin Bieber is taking to social media to detail why he hasn’t released any new music since Purpose.
The “Sorry” singer went to Instagram on Monday (Mar. 25) to let fans be made aware that he’s read “a lot of messages” asking him when is going to drop a brand new album and when he’ll be making his return to music. However, he’s focused on his mental health and his marriage to Hailey Baldwin. Bieber explained how unhappy he was on the road and that in order for him to create, he needs to focus and repair the “deep-rooted issues” he’s currently battling.
“So I read a lot of messages saying you want an album,” the 25-year-old began his lengthy message. “I’ve toured my whole teenage life, and early 20s, I realized and as you guys probably saw I was unhappy last tour and I don’t deserve that and you don’t deserve that, you pay money to come and have a lively energetic fun light concert and I was unable emotionally to give you that near the end of the tour.”
“I have been looking, seeking, trial and error as most of us do, I am now very focused on repairing some of the deep-rooted issues that I have as most of us have, so that I don’t fall apart, so that I can sustain my marriage and be the father I want to be. Music is very important to me but nothing comes before my family and my health,” he continued, before promising to come back with “a kick-ass album ASAP.”
