Justin Timberlake Readies New Single for May

It’s gonna be May. Justin Timberlake is reportedly readying a new single for release as soon as next month.

According to HITS Daily Double, the Max Martin-produced song will appear on DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls soundtrack, which is tentatively set for an October release.

In addition to his musical contribution, Timberlake voices a troll named Branch in the 3D animated film, scheduled to hits theaters on Nov. 4.

Timberlake is also working on a new solo album, his first since 2013’s The 20/20 Experience. HITS claims it will drop in the fourth quarter, with production by Martin and Timberlake’s longtime collaborators Pharrell Williams and Timbaland.

The “Mirrors” crooner has been in the studio with Skateboard P and Timbo, and recently shared photos of their sessions on Instagram.

The 20/20 Experience debuted at No. 1 in March 2013 with 980,000 copies, while Part 2 arrived in September of the same year with 348,000.
