It’s been 6 years since Justin Timberlake released his last album FutureSex/LoveSounds in 2006 and took home 2 Grammys for it, but it seems like the singer turned actor will return to music soon.
UPDATE: Before anyone could get their hopes up, Justin’s rep denied claims that he is working on a new album. According to Billboard.com:
Timberlake’s publicist tells Billboard that while it’s true the superstar is collaborating with Timbaland, there are no plans for a third solo album. Further, Timberlake is currently shooting a movie, “Runner, Runner,” in Puerto Rico.
And the wait continues…
ORIGINAL STORY: Digital Spy caught up with songwriter and producer Jim Beanz (who has worked with Whitney Houston, Britney Spears, Chris Brown, Keri Hilson, the list is endless…) and he revealed that Justin is currently working on a new album.
“It’s still in the early stages, but they have a lot of tracks. While I’ve been over here in the UK they’ve been working, so by the time I get back they’ll have a whole load of ideas and I’m going to have to catch up!
“He has some crazy, crazy stuff.
“There are certain artists who live in the moment and the reason why FutureSex/LoveSounds was so amazing is because he didn’t try to top Justified.
“There are certain artists who can get inside with great charisma and energy and make great music every time. So it’s not really about topping the last record, it’s more about topping music that comes on the radio.
“Everything is so similar that it’s about topping that and doing something different, and that’s what they are going for. He’s going to kill it.”
So, there you have it. Along with his upcoming wedding to actress Jessica Biel, Justin has already added recording a highly anticipated album to the mix.
