The 'Baby' singer's next release will reportedly help start his slow move from teen idol to adult pop star.
Justin Bieber's third studio album will reportedly be a transitionary album between the Canadian pop star's teen years and becoming an adult artist.
The 'Mistletoe' singer's vocal producer Kuk Harrell says it was important not to rush Justin's vocal progression and to give him time to develop his style as an adult.
"The only conversation we've had about Justin's album that we're about to do is it's really important that it's the proper transition," Kuk told MTV News. "Because we've seen him [with] 'Baby'. Now we're watching him grow up.
"We can't just throw him into the adult game right away. It has to be the proper transition. There's a record in between."
Justin released his second studio album, the festive-themed 'Under The Mistletoe' last month and has already released three music videos from the record so far.
"That's why I think this Christmas album was really important because it gave everybody the opportunity to hear him, see him and get used to his voice changing," Kuk explained. "When his proper album comes out, everybody's really going to be looking at that."
Justin has previously confirmed that both Kanye West and Drake will contribute to his third full-length release which is tentatively titled 'Believe'.
The 'Never Say Never' singer has filmed a music video with Mariah Carey for their reworking of her festive classic 'All I Want For Christmas Is You', which is expected to premiere tomorrow (30th November).
