Ryan: And now, with very
accurate drum position, the multitime, thousands upon thousands
of times award winner and one of the greatest
musicians and overall human beings in the
history of the world… your friend, my friend,
Hailey’s wife, Justin… oh I said Hailey’s,
Hailey’s wife, I said. I’ve got to say… Justin: It was so good though. Ryan: All right,
I’ll do it again. ♪ You’ve got that yummy yum,

Buick right here. Thought it would be cool to
do a shoot on this thing. About to go inside
and cut the song, “Running Over.” You ready?
Josh: Yep. Justin: ♪ Equal… ♪ Scooter: I’ve tried to
take a real step back and allow him his process. And my involvement in
the earlier albums is finding songs and finding
producers and finding writers. But really from “Journals” on,
his process usually starts with him just going in
and experimenting for a solid six months before
we even talk one song. ♪ I’m home. ♪ ♪♪♪ ♪♪ ♪ Every sound like

of course he is, party. Hailey: Hey.
Justin: Keith’s here. Ryan: I initially got connected
to Justin back in 2009. You know, the joke
was always like, Usher hired me to be
his swagger coach. ♪♪♪ ♪ Got a sweet car and I’m
staying out with you… ♪ ♪ Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh. ♪ Justin: Yeah, no,
you do this one. [Laughs] Ryan: We’ll do the
ad libs and then, and then we’ll just
go from there, okay. Josh just wants to go home. [Laughs] ♪ New perspective from life. ♪ How’s that?
That’s great. That’s really good. Okay, you see
what I did there? Justin: Yeah.
Ryan: Yeah, okay. Justin: ♪ Whole new
perspective on life. ♪ Ryan: Watching Justin do
what he does is pretty… it’s pretty special. I mean, in the studio,
in that booth, like, he goes into a
different world. And he, ah, he’s just really
good at what he does. And it’s cool to
be able to, like, watch the process
of it all. ♪ Yeah, every time I come

my whole entire career. About 10 years we’ve
been working together. ♪♪ Justin: I love Josh, he
helps facilitate everything, makes everything
a lot easier. And I’ve known
him for so long, we just have a chemistry, and
we just vibe together, so… Yeah, me and Josh
are super close. Josh: You know we collaborate
in different ways. I get songs for him. I cut his vocals. I mix his vocals. I mix his music. Just like a music
curator for Justin. Scooter: I think Josh Gudwin
is incredibly instrumental in his process. They’ve been working together,
vocal engineer, and you know, album producer
for a long time now. Justin: All right. Josh: All right, give
me one sec here. Justin: No. This is– we work fast, bro. Josh: Oh, we work
very fast, it’s true. He puts you in kind
of tough situations, but at the end of the day those
situations make you strong. Justin: My favorite thing
about working with Josh is probably, um, just the fact
that I love him as a person. I’d love to just sit in a
room with him and just chill. So, like the fact that
I get to like hang, listen to tunes,
like vibe. Laugh, we have a really
similar sense of humor. Hey, Josh, Josh, I don’t pay
you to go to the bathroom, bro. Just so, just so you know. Allison: Josh is kind
of the recording sherpa. Josh is really the only one
in the room cutting him and vocal producing him and
helping him pick the songs. Josh is a very integral part
of Justin making music and has been since
the beginning. There isn’t an album Justin
has worked on that Josh hasn’t been a part
of with him. Justin: He knows
when I’m like, I don’t have it
during the day. Like sometimes I’ll come
in and it will be like, it just won’t be a day for me
to like get anything done. And he’ll just basically know,
like, all right, JB, like, let’s just come back
and get it tomorrow. You know, and I know I
don’t take that as like, what, you think
I’m shitty today? I’m just like,
yeah, you’re right, I just don’t
have it today. ♪ Where you going?
don’t go far, love. ♪ ♪ Blessings sent to me,

a part of the process. I love watching him do
what he’s so good at. Even if it means me laying
on the coach until 3:00, 4:00 in the morning binge
watching TV shows and just being around. I just enjoy the energy
that goes into it. We turn it into a
really fun process. You know we brought friends
around and people just kind of hang and I don’t know I just
feel at home wherever he is. So if he’s hold up
in the studio, that feels like
home to me. Scooter: Singing songs,
sharing his music, it’s one of the things
that makes him happy. It’s one of the things
that he loves to do. It feeds his soul. So to see him back in the
studio, it brings me joy, because I see the joy he
gets from making music and sharing music. I’m pumped, I missed
hearing his voice. ♪ I’m not feeling
good enough. ♪ ♪ All I ever did
was let you down. ♪ ♪ Never understood why
you stayed around. ♪ ♪ Ever since I can
remember… ♪ Josh: After “Believe,”
Justin started taking more control of his
creative ideas. As a young artist, you know,
things were chosen for him, and now he’s fully accountable
for his choices on this album. He’s in a once-in-a-lifetime
spot in, you know, in his whole life right now. Justin: This is going
to be so beautiful. I’m going to destroy
this part, bro. Hailey: He is such a
perfectionist and he’s so good at what he does that there’s
a whole different energy when Justin is really like in his
zone and really doing his thing that I can’t really explain. And maybe by watching this
people will kind of get a glimpse into his world. Justin: I’m just going to get
in the zone a little bit. ♪ Sometimes it feels
good to cry-yi-yi-yi. ♪ ♪ Cry-yi-yi-yi-yi. ♪ That was hard. That was hard, dude. Ryan: He works extremely hard. He’s a perfectionist. You know he wants to recut
songs all of the times, like, because he hears things that
other people don’t hear. Justin: We’ve got to recut
“Double Negative,” because that’s an
old, old vocal. We should cut “Changes”
today, right, line by line. Yeah, it sounds terrible. – Okay.
Line for line. Justin: Am I perfectionist? Oh yeah. ♪ Love the way

it so many times and people probably
don’t understand, I want it perfect. I can never remake
this album. It’s just, once it comes out,
it’s out, you know, so… It’s got to be perfect. I think for me things have
always been so polished and so, like, perfect and
everything needed to be so perfect and I just felt
like I had to worry about literally everything. Like, don’t touch
your face that way, don’t touch your hair. You’re ruining– you’ve
got a stain on your shirt. Like, that’s why these
little things like– I really just don’t want to
even make that a huge deal. Anyways, I could get
how audio could get… if I’m doing this
