Justin Bieber Drops New Album 'Changes' -- All the Songs About Wife Hailey
Justin Bieber has officially made his musical comeback!
The 25-year-old singer released his fifth studio album, Changes, on Friday, just in time for Valentine's Day. It's his first full-length release since 2015's Purpose, which featured hits like "Sorry," "Love Yourself" and "What Do You Mean?"
"I feel like this is different than the previous albums just because of where I'm at in my life," Bieber said of the new album, in a teaser video posted to YouTube back in December. "I'm excited to perform it and to tour it."
"We all have different stories; I'm just excited to share mine," he added. "It's the music that I've loved the most of anything I've done."
As anticipated, much of the 17-track album details Bieber's married life with wife Hailey. The two secretly tied the knot at a courthouse in New York City in September 2018 and had a second wedding in South Carolina a year later.
"I'm glad it worked out because she's an amazing, amazing, amazing person," Bieber shared during his appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show last month. "She really is. She's super precious. I enjoy spending my life with her."
Now, ET's breaking down some of the best songs on Bieber's latest R&B/pop project, and analyzing all the lyrics that were seemingly written about his forever love.
"All Around Me"
Starting from the very first track on the album, Bieber is already making it clear how much his love played a role in his new music, and how his view on love has changed since finding his soulmate.
Bieber sings, "Not sure what I was doin' before you / I quit tryin' to figure it out."
Track track also sees Bieber singing about commitment and loyalty, and a newfound sense of dedication.
"Open up my eyes to a feeling I can't ignore/I need you all around me," Bieber croons. "Wouldn't wanna be in any other place."
Later, he sings, "I'll make sure you're comfortable/ You make sure I'm comfortable/ Our love's unconditional."
Bieber said in episode three of Seasons that this track is one of his "favorite songs."
"It's not often where I hear something right away and I'm like, 'This is so tight,'" he explained.
"Come Around Me"
Like "Yummy" - the first single released off the new album -- this track also gets a little dirty with some racy lyrics.
Bieber sings, "When you come around me, do me like you miss me. Even though you been with me."

"You still intimidate me, keep me up on my toes now," Bieber croons on this track. "Better man, what you made me / Made me aware what I was missin.'"
In his YouTube docuseries, Justin Bieber: Seasons, the singer opened up about still getting butterflies around his wife. "Sometimes I still get nervous with her in the room for some reason. It's weird, I know," he confessed. "I don't know, she just makes me nervous because I love her so much and I want her to like my stuff. [My album is] about her, too, so, I'm singing about her -- it's a weird thing. But it's awesome."
"I think she loves me being happy," he added. "Even if the music sucks, she's so awesome and cares about me so much — she would just love the fact that I'm happy doing what I love, even if it was whack."
In case you missed it, Bieber admitted in episode six of Seasons thathe was having a tough time in the recording studio while trying to put Changes together. "I'm just nervous a little bit. Just expectations and stuff," he confessed. "I'll be honest I don't feel good. I struggle with massive anxiety."
"This has been the hardest, roughest season of my life," he added. "The pressure of delivering a good album, and it's a lot of different things."
