THE 35-year-old singer Justin Timberlake who has just dropped his first solo track, ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling!’, in three years has revealed he is planning to “mix it up” with his music this time around.
Speaking on Tuesday’s (10.05.16) Capital London Breakfast Show, he shared: “It’s an exciting time, I’m writing a lot of music right now. I don’t want to put anything out there that I have to keep promises on, but it’s moving along nicely with Pharrell, the usual suspects and the Swedes. I’m kind of mixing it up this time.”
The ‘SexyBack’ hit-maker is thrilled to be the executive music producer for the soundtrack to upcoming animation movie ‘Trolls’ which he is also voicing a character for but admits he was worried he had underestimated the workload at first.
He said: “When I was first brought in as the lead opposite Anna Kendrick in ‘Trolls’, Jeffrey Tambor pulled me aside and said, ‘I want you to do all the music. Apart from some existing music we’re using for comedic purposes with some covers.’
“So he pulled me in and said, ‘I want you to be Executive Music Producer’ or some silly title. My first reaction was, ‘Wow really cool’ and then on the drive home I was like, ‘This seems like a lot of work.’
When presenter Dave Berry told him he could not just “call Jeffrey back and go, ‘I’m so sorry I take it back'”, Justin added: “No, he’s like the godfather, you can’t get out of it. I think he may actually be a don.”
