Update, May 6: ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling’ is intended for the Trolls soundtrack.
Timberlake has dropped a video for the track that features the cast of the forthcoming Dreamworks film, including James Corden, Anna Kendrick and Gwen Stefani.
Is JT working on two new albums?
It’s not yet clear whether tomorrow’s single is from this project, or from a new movie project Timberlake is involved in. It was recently announced he is also writing and performing new music for a film based on the Trolls toy franchise, as well as voicing one of the characters.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, he has signed on as the executive producer of Trolls and will voice the character of Branch, “a hilariously hardcore survivalist who hides his surprising true colors.
“I have always envisioned bringing the two worlds of film and music together for one epic event [and] couldn’t be more excited that they will collide in DreamWorks’ Trolls,” the ‘Suit & Tie’ artist said back in January. “This film is very special, the music is going to be very special and I can’t wait for everyone to experience it all.”
Featuring the voice of Twilight actor Anna Kendrick, the film is directed by Shrek Forever After duo Mike Mitchell and Walt Dorhn. It’s due for release in November.
‘Can’t Stop The Feeling’ is Timberlake’s first new music since 2013’s 20/20 Experience.
