Event will feature never-before-heard interview, fan questions and Justice tracks
iHeartMedia presents the iHeartRadio Album Release Party with Justin Bieber, an exclusive event on Thursday, March 25th at 7 pm local time to celebrate his new album, Justice, released March 19th via Def Jam Records. Hosted by Elvis Duran, the event will feature an exclusive never-before-heard interview, fan questions and needle drops from the new album.
Fans can tune into a live video stream on LiveXLive. The event will also broadcast on iHeartMedia’s Pop, Hot AC and Rhythm radio stations at 7 pm local time, as well as on Today’s Mix and Hit Nation digital stations at 7 pm ET/4 pm PT.
Justice is available in multiple configurations with three alternate covers available via his webstore. A Japanese CD pressing and Japanese Deluxe CD/DVD offering with two Japan only bonus tracks, an April 2021-March 2022 calendar, and a Japan exclusive interview with the pop star as well as music video and making-of will be available in slipcase packaging on March 26th via Universal Japan.
Upon its release, Bieber made headlines for the album’s use of “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere,” by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. People were calling the pop star out for using the social justice leader’s words in this trying time. Bieber did use the lines at the blessing of King’s daughter, Bernice King, who praises the musician for helping to spread their social justice movement.
Bieber is facing legal trouble for the album’s artwork after French duo Justice sent a cease-and-desist notice over similarities of their trademarked “cross” logo. Rolling Stone reports the letter was sent after talks dissolved between the two parties, with the duo possibly seeking damages and “punitive and injustice relief” for infringement and “trademark dilution” of their Mark that has been registered in France since 2008 and the European Union since 2014.
“Not only was Bieber’s team actually aware of Justice’s use of the Mark, they sought to use the same artist to essentially duplicate it for the Album. This is textbook bad faith and willful infringement,” the notice states.
Bieber is also planning to release a new line of clothing with the Justice logo.
