Justin Timberlake’s last album release came in 2013 with double album ‘The 20/20 Experience’, which featured singles ‘Suit & Tie’ and ‘Mirrors’.
According to Timberlake;
“I wouldn’t say [my new music] is the antithesis of ‘20/20,’ but it does sound more singular. If ‘20/20’ sounded like it literally surrounds your entire head, this stuff feels more like it just punches you between the eyes.”
Timberlake has also been working with Timberland and NSync songwriter Max Martin on the album apart from pharrell. About this He added;
“Tim is a sound junkie, the same way Pharrell is a song junkie. And then Max is like music’s Morpheus.”
Pharrell on the other hand said;
“Songwise, I think we’ve got a good solid six that are like, ‘Whoa, what was that? Play that again.’ I would pay Justin a huge compliment to say he’s just discovering who he is now.”
“For the biggest pop stars in the world, the place where they have the most trouble is honesty. It’s hard for them to know that the beauty of a record, the sweetest spot in the song, is where they show vulnerability. Because there’s a formulaic sort of vulnerability, like, ‘Baby, I can’t sleep without you …’ and that’s not really it. But if you’re able to really screenshot your own vulnerability, and frame it properly, and colour-correct it, then it becomes something that every human can relate to. And I think Justin is in the place where he’s mastering that right now.”
But in other news, It has been reported that Justin Timberlake could face prosecution after posting a picture of himself voting in the forthcoming US Presidential election. Surprisingly.
