Justin Timberlake ‘planning new record’
According to a musical pal, Justin Timberlake will introduce a follow-up to The 20/20 Experience later this year.
The singer-and-actor has made a major comeback to the music scene with hit single Suit & Tie and his first album since 2006, The 20/20 Experience.
It seems the 32-year-old isn't planning another hiatus anytime soon, with rumours rife a follow-up record will be released later this year.
The Roots drummer ?uestlove played with the singer at the South by Southwest (SXSW) festival over the weekend and seemed to confirm more music by Justin is on the way.
"spoiler alert. 20/20 Vol 2 comes out in nov. (10 songs now.....10 songs later= 20 vision) (sic)," the musician posted on the Okayplayer.com message board.
?uestlove also addressed Suit & Tie, defending its unusual sound and arguing that Justin wasn't writing his new tracks "for 18-year-olds".
According to the drummer, younger fans might struggle to get on board with the Cry Me a River singer's new tunes.
"i mean suit and tie is the MOST UNLIKELY james brown production reference but of course unless you got a master degree in soul-ology this won't mean sh*t to you," he argued on the website.
Justin recently introduced the second single from his current album, Mirrors.
The song certainly seems to have gone down well with fans, making it three weeks in a row at the top of the UK chart.
"UK we scored the hat trick! Thank you for keeping Mirrors at #1 for the 3rd week in a row! You're the best. -TeamJT (sic)," Justin wrote on Twitter.
