Justin Bieber will release an acoustic album next month.

The 18-year-old singer admitted that he can't wait for his fans to hear unplugged versions of his hit records because they sound much more ''intimate''.

Speaking on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, 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 album will come out in January but no further details about the release date have been revealed.
