The music world is abuzz today with the cryptic announcements from Justin Timberlake and famed producer Timbaland that the two are likely working on or have already finished a brand new full-length album together. JT and Timbaland’s homepages both redirect to the video above, a short narrative with the former ‘N SYNCer in which he proclaims that he is “ready.” At the end of the video, there’s a countdown–currently with about three days left on the clock. Some are speculating the announcement is a last minute forewarning of a quick release of a new album and JT has been quietly producing and writing music for some time already.
It’s no secret to anyone that Justin Timberlake’s four-time platinum 2006 album FutureSex/LoveSounds was a classic, but we’re pretty confident to say that it was also a critically-acclaimed American dance album before the “EDM” explosion stateside. We’re excited to see what this all means and even more excited if the developments in the world of synthetically produced sounds since his last album have further pushed Timbaland and Timberlake into our beloved umbrella genre.
