Justin TImberlake

Justin Timberlake, who hasn't released a new album of original material since 2006's FutureSex/LoveSounds, just revealed a trailer called "I'm Ready," which presumably he means he has a new album coming out. Watch it below. Along with the video, he also posted a countdown which ends Sunday at midnight.

According to Billboard, sources say Justin has around 20 tracks recorded with longtime producer TImbaland, who worked on both of his solo albums and did almost all of the production on FutureSex/LoveSounds. He is set to release the album "sooner than later."

Video below...

I've been so ready for him to be ready to start making music.

Justin Timberlake has put out some of the finest pop records of the 2000s. This is great news, even if it's not "alt" enough for some BV readers.

Brooklyn Vegan would've never have posted this Top 40 bullshit 5 years ago.

12:34, that is just incorrect.

Dear BV,

You're not going to gain the "general public" hits on this site for posting such terrible Top 40 crap like this, so why start now? Please go back to your roots and start posting good music again & leave it up to the shitty corporate zines to handle these affairs. I promise I won't complain when you write up a glowing review of Crystal Castles next show.

Thank you.

Is Timbaland his producer or the name of a new Justin theme park.

I didn't know he was gone. Where was he?

Posted by Anonymous | January 10, 2013 12:52 PM

He is a pretty shitty actor, I guess it makes sense to return to his roots as a shitty R&B singer.

It's still cool to hate on Justin Timberlake? I thought you douche bag holier than though hipster assholes had excepted him and moved on by now...

Posted by Anonymous | January 10, 2013 12:55 PM

This sucks.

BV has a chance to lead and not follow the leader. Just because shitfork has posted this today, doesn't mean that this site has to. Then I realized that BV is a member of the Spin group and the independent blog is a thing of the past. People pay adds to have their artists covered.

I guess you're trying to be semi-facetious with this, but I'm sure that deep down, you really mean this. Even Justin's worst work is still better than that saccharine-ridden scarf indie-pop-rock bullshit.

The guys in New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys probably kick themselves in the ass. They probably look at Justin and say "shit I wish I was smart enough to hire a hot R&B producer, and get myself a good PR rep to make me look cool to the adult demographic".

Posted by Anonymous | January 10, 2013 1:36 PM

Well he is better than Grimes...

Posted by Anonymous | January 10, 2013 1:40 PM

What's terrible is that he managed to get so many people to stick up for his musical talent. Do they not remember N'SYNC?

I can like the occasional Mark Walberg movie but I'm not going to pretend he was musically talented. Get real people.

I like all kinds of music - some of which gets coverage on this site, some of which doesn't - and I think JT is dope. He's very talented, he sings well, the production is tight, and he's a funny motherfucker. How can you hate on this guy?

Posted by Anonymous | January 10, 2013 1:51 PM

He's a fucking hack actor and his music is absolute shit.

When did this blog get readers like 1:51, 2:02 and 2:04. You three are just laughable schmucks. Seriously this place used to be made up of people with discerning taste who knew the difference between really good and really bad music.

Go away you fucking morons. Go back to the Z100 hole you crawled out of to get here.

Anyone who defends Timberlake is most likely under 25, part time gay, has no taste in music and used to jerk off to Nsync when they were 11

Posted by Anonymous | January 10, 2013 2:22 PM

The only difference between Justin, and any of the lead guys from the other boy bands is that he has smart people managing his career.
When he first went solo, hooking up with Timbaland was key. That gave him the leverage for his PR people to get him into the R&B magazines like Vibe, and they were able to somehow convince people that he had street cred.

Posted by Anonymous | January 10, 2013 2:22 PM

People get really emotional about music they don't like huh?

You know that the state of popular music is awful, when people are clamoring for a new Timberlake album.
People are starving for good music. We took it for granted in the 70's & 80's.

Wait a minute. It is a tradition for hipsters to like shit music like the Timberlake. It gives the hipster "I can listen to traditionally uncool shit without it tarnishing my cred" points. Phil Collins, Hall and Oates, Robyn, Kate Bush, Whitney Houston around the time she died, Michael Jackson and remember those Journey shirts you guys used to wear? When a hipster likes something it makes it cool it does not bring the hipster's coolness down.

As a musician, Timberlake is nothing without Timbaland. And unless Missy Elliot puts out another record, Timbaland needs Justin as well.

What's with the overly dramatic video? "I'm ready", like he's about to reveal the cure for cancer or something.

And there's no one else in the studio in there with him? Are magical studio elves going to pop up behind the knobs at the boards as soon as he starts singing?
