The good news: Justin Timberlake is working on new music. The bad news: He’s not working on an album. Word spread pretty fast that JT was working on fresh “crazy crazy stuff” after Digital Spy posted an interview with producer Jim Beanz. According to the producer, he is set to work with Timbaland and JT on Shock Value 3. In addition, Beanz alluded to material for a new album, which sounded somewhat sketchy since JT is primarily focused on his acting career, running Myspace as the Creative Director, designing home decor and hopefully helping with wedding plans.
Apparently our suspicions weren’t too far fetched. According to EW, JT’s publicist said there are no plans for an upcoming Timberlake album. He is working on SV3, but that’s where the buck stops for music. Well, there goes our hopes and dreams. It’s been six years since he crooned on FutureSex/LoveSounds. Fans have been anxiously waiting for his return. Outside of his collaboration with Timbaland, more music may be a dream deferred. At least we can see him on the big screen or rapping on Jimmy Fallon. Something is better than nothing at all.
