After exploring his roots with Man of the Woods, Justin Timberlake seems ready to return to the sound that helped make him a household name.
Justin Timberlake paid a virtual visit to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Friday night (Jan. 29), and he dropped some details about new music.
While Timberlake was mainly making an appearance on The Tonight Show to promote his new film Palmer, the conversation with Fallon turned to his and Jessica Biel’s new baby — “Nobody’s sleeping, but he’s so cute” — and his next album.
“Can we say? Is there a possibility that there’s going to be a new Justin Timberlake album in the works?” Fallon prompted the pop star.
“Yeah, we can say that,” said Timberlake with a smile. “There is a possibility.”
“Let’s go with yes. I’ve been in and out of the studio working on stuff. I played you a few tunes,” he reminded Fallon.
Timberlake last released a full-length album in 2018, Man of the Woods. More recently, he collaborated with Ant Clemons on the song “Better Days,” which was performed at the primetime Celebrating America concert on Jan. 20, following the inauguration of Joe Biden.
Looking toward the future, Timberlake told Fallon he’d love to one day work with Kendrick Lamar or Travis Scott. He also joked that he’d allow Fallon in on a track.
