Justin Timberlake could be recording a new album while we weren’t looking.
While it could be music for his upcoming animated movie, “Trolls” (due out 4th November), in which he acts and serves as music executive producer, chances are equally likely that he’s back in the studio working on his next solo album.
The most recent proof came in the form of his latest Instagram post when Timberlake uploaded yet another behind the scenes photo in the studio. This time, it was none other than iconic music producer, Timbaland. The 35-year-old simply captioned the shot of the duo, “Currently”.
JT and Timbo seem rather dazed and confused in the pic. Perhaps it was from the bottles of ginger beer sitting by the side?
The duo have a long and extensive history together. Timbaland was previously the lead producer for Timberlake’s 2006 album “FutureSex/LoveSounds” and his follow-up record for 2013’s “The 20/20 Experience”. The 2 have managed to create some gems over the years, so let’s hope that they’re currently cooking up some new tunes for a new album.
Last week, the Memphis crooner also posted a black and white photo of him and Pharrell Williams deep in conversation. A casually clad Timberlake is seated on a sofa while the music producer flashes a smile from his chair.
The “The Voice” coach was actually behind a couple of Timberlake’s best songs including “Rock Your Body” and “Señorita”. Pharrell and Timberlake are something like equals in terms of their influence, so it’s rather exciting to hear word that these 2 talented musicians are collaborating again.
Pharrell also shared a brief clip with Timberlake from the studio session. In the clip, Timberlake provided a PSA of the day, saying, “There’ll be Snapchapping, no Instabamming and no Swittering”, which they were both already breaking.
The Grammy winner later revealed a smiley selfie of himself chilling with country group Little Big Town members Karen Fairchild and Kimberly Schlapman, which raises the question if he could be going country, or at least a pop-country hybrid. “NBD… Just writing with @littlebigtown This band is the truth!! So good!!!!” Timberlake wrote.
The mystery continues to build around JT as the singer could potentially be trolling all of us (pun intended), or maybe he’s about to drop a music masterpiece. Whatever that may be, we’re more than ready for Timberlake to bring sexy back once again!
