Straight off the news that Usher will be the next Super Bowl halftime performer, the R&B crooner has announced his new album, "Coming Home."

Usher said the upcoming album is "a love letter, once again, to the legacy of my career," while speaking to Zane Lowe on Apple Music radio live.

"More than anything, it's a celebration of music," he added.

Usher shared the forthcoming album's cover art on Instagram on Sunday -- an image of the singer captured from behind, holding a peach above his bare neck, which is adorned with multiple necklaces -- and pointed fans to a presave link for "Coming Home."

The 20-track album includes the previously released "Good Good" featuring Summer Walker and 21 Savage.

When the Super Bowl halftime performance news was revealed, Usher also shared a series of mashup videos of a younger version himself alongside celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Marshawn Lynch, Deion Sanders and Odell Beckham Jr.

The hilarious videos were parodies of the intro to his 2004 hit "Confessions."

"It's an honor of a lifetime to finally check a Super Bowl performance off my bucket list," Usher said in a statement. "I can't wait to bring the world a show unlike anything else they've seen from me before. Thank you to the fans and everyone who made this opportunity happen. I'll see you real soon."

Usher's "Coming Home" is expected in February.
