Fans are holding their breath following a mysterious tweet posted by pop sensation and Punk’d star, Justin Timberlake. What’s going on? Timberlake hinted toward a big announcement for January 10, which left fans wondering what’s up. Could he be working on a new album?
According to MTV, it has been six long years since Timberlake released a new album. In the meantime, he’s pursued a little bit of everything including movies, TV, fashion, restaurants, home décor, and the relaunch of MySpace. And last but not least, let’s not forget, he got married!
So can we expect a new album anytime soon? While we can’t certain, Timberlake has dropped hints that he’s definitely thinking about it but says producing an album takes time and is special to him. Last year, he said making an album “Is a really big deal… For me, personally, when I do sit down and decide to do it, it’s just a special thing.” He added, “I don’t know that I can pump them out every year.”
“Until it kind of slaps me in the face, I’m going to tinker around with everything,” he said in 2009. “I’m obviously not the type of artist who rushes anything. I’ve done, like, two records in the last eight years … I just believe that the process is what it’s really all about. And if you make the process [like] what I was able to have the luck of tapping into for the first two [albums], the end comes out the way it comes out.”
Maybe his new bride has given him the inspiration he needed to get back to music. Last year, when Timberlake tied the knot with longtime girlfriend, Jessica Biel, he wrote a song especially for her and sang it to her as she walked down the aisle. Then, later in the year, he was seen leaving a recording studio with Beyonce, which started rumors that they were working on a song together.
What do you think about the possibility of Timberlake releasing a new album? Are you anxiously waiting? Or could you care less? Post a comment and let us know.
