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.

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 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.
UPDATE: Timberlake has seemingly confirmed that a new single will drop in May. “Everybody… It is ACTUALLY GONNA BE MAY!” he tweeted, while using the hashtag #canyoumemeyourself.
