NEW YORK (Billboard) - Justin Bieber has unveiled the artwork for his upcoming “My Worlds Acoustic” album and announced a new single, “Pray,” that will appear on the set alongside stripped-down versions of his previously released material.
The cover for Bieber’s “My Worlds Acoustic,” which will be released exclusively through Wal-Mart stores on November 26, shows the hoodie- and leather jacket-clad pop star cradling an acoustic guitar against a grey backdrop and showing off his signature swoop haircut.
The “Pray” single is described as an “optimistic” and “uplifting” track, according to a statement, which also says that Bieber and his guitar will be supported by other string instruments, congas and the box-shaped drum known as the cajon, on the set.
The “My Worlds Acoustic” tracklist also includes Bieber’s breakout single “One Time,” his “Karate Kid” soundtrack cut “Never Say Never,” and “Baby,” the lead track from “My World 2.0” and his most successful single to date reaching No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100.
