Justin Timberlake had came back on the scene with his No. 1 hit “Can’t Stop the Feeling” this past May, and now the superstar has finally given a few more details about what’s to come.
After working with the upcoming DreamWorks Animation movie Trolls and the film The Book of Love (starring his wife, Jessica Biel), Timberlake has also been hard at work in the studio with infamous producer Pharrell Williams with his next album in mind. But for now unfortunately there’s no set date for the album.
“I think everyone I’m working with right now knows I’m notorious for being like, ‘Yeah, let’s work. I have no idea when I’ll put it out, though,’” Timberlake told Variety. “I’ll put it out when it’s done, when it feels right.”
Adding to that news, Timberlake said, “I’m just in the now of now. I think it’s an effect of just enjoying my life more. For a long time I lived my life for a lot of other people, or for the idea that those other people had an idea of me. And whatever — there’s a guy who’s gonna wake up tomorrow and transfer an organ from one body to another and save someone’s life — so what are we even doing?”
Despite JT’s vagueness about the album’s release date, he did give a little more detail about the type of material fans can expect on his fourth solo album.
“I wouldn’t say [my new material] is the antithesis of 20/20, but it does sound more singular,” he hinted. “If 20/20 sounded like it literally surrounds your entire head, this stuff feels more like it just punches you between the eyes.”
