Three years after his last album The 20/20 Experience, Justin Timberlake returned with brand new music last week. His new single “Can’t Stop The Feeling” is an infectious track that can immediately lift the mood of just about any situation. Though this new single is taken from the soundtrack of his upcoming, animated film Trolls, Timberlake has been making more and more hints about a new album.
During a recent interview with BBC 1Xtra this morning, Timberlake explained that working on music for the film inspired him to get back in the studio to work on music of his own. “Working on the music for this movie just got me really excited about being back in the studio again,” he explained.
Timberlake went on to reveal that he has a collaboration with The Weeknd in the works. “Abel and I have been talking about doing a collab,” he said. “He’s working on an album right now, I don’t know if I was supposed to say that.”
Last month we saw photos of Timberlake back in the studio again with Pharrell. He’s also been in the studio with another long-time collaborator, Timbaland. As of right now, there’s no target time for when we’ll begin to hear music from Timberlake’s upcoming album, but it sounds like it’ll be worth the wait. Thankfully, we at least have “Can’t Stop The Feeling” to enjoy for now.
