Timbaland’s second solo album promises to shock the world. Timbaland Presents Shock Value is set for release March 27, 2007. The first single, “Give It To Me,” featuring Justin Timberlake and Nelly Furtado, launches February 1.

“My mission is to blow up the boundaries and tear down the limits,” says Timbaland. “I’m taking my music outside of the box. I’m not getting away from what I’m known for; I’m just going to a place where it’s all about the music, not about the labels on the music. That’s why I call it Shock Value–from the artists to the production, it will shock the system.”

Shock Value is sequenced like a movie, Timbaland reveals, with a non-stop flow that tells a story. With off-the-wall beats, raps, hooks, and his signature sound, the album fuses genres from rap and hip-hop to pop, punk pop and garage rock to South Asian influences. The album’s guest artists range from Jay-Z and Snoop Dogg to Justin Timberlake and Nelly Furtado; from The Hives, She Wants Revenge and Fall Out Boy to Elton John (on piano) and newer artists such as Sri Lankan hip-hopper M.I.A. and Keri Hilson (the latter signed to Timbaland’s Mosley Music Group).

Timbaland is on tour now with Justin Timberlake.
