Justin Bieber to release acoustic album in January

Justin Bieber has confirmed plans to release an acoustic album early next year.

The Canadian had previously suggested that he would be stripping back some of his songs and making a new collection.

It would follow on from his 2010 release 'My Worlds Acoustic', which saw Bieber perform his early material unplugged.

Speaking on the Ellen DeGeneres show, the singer said that his fans like acoustic material because it is "more intimate". He said:

"It's something the fans really like. Because I started out on YouTube just playing my guitar, just singing without all the production, so I like to just put out acoustic albums. I think it's more intimate."

The 'Believe' star added that he is planning to release the record in January next year.

Bieber meanwhile also told Ellen that he was disappointed to miss out on a 2013 Grammy nomination, but the 18-year-old suggested that he has time on his side.
