Do long-distance relationships really work? According to Justin Bieber‘s new emotional track, “Hard 2 Face Reality,” it’s really not that easy, especially for a pop superstar.

Featuring guest vocals from Atlanta singer-songwriter Poo Bear, the R&B-heavy song contains somber verses that suggest a difficult long-distance relationship: “I know it’s hard away from home / It ain’t easy all alone / relationships over the phone / talkin’ to your significant other all night long.”

Justin also dropped the acoustic ballad, “We Were Born For This“:

Following the surprise releases, the Journals artist teased his fans on Twitter, saying, “Big things happening” and “Excited for what’s next.”

The Canadian singer — who has been in an on-again-off-again relationship with Selena Gomez — also revealed how he would one day propose to his “future wife” in an Instagram photo he shared on Saturday.

“Was gonna wait to go to Central Park for when I proposed to my future wife,” he writes. “But s**t sometimes things change. [crown emoji] I’ll think of something more romantic.”
