New Justin Timberlake Documentary To Focus On Making Of New Album
In an interview for On Air With Ryan Seacrest (via Billboard), Justin Timberlake revealed that he is preparing a documentary about the making of his new album The 20/20 Experience, which will be out on March 19.
Timberlake posted a video last month saying that he’s ready to return to music. During the interview, he said: “[I’m trying] not to give too much away. You know I like surprising the fans. That little piece of footage is from a documentary that we sort of started working on throughout the making of the album, which started last June.“
When asked about his Grammy performance on Sunday, he replied: “All over the world with the performances I’m going to do. I think you’ll hear some stuff that you haven’t heard.“
Timberlake said that he and producer Timbaland created over a song per day and the record was almost done by the time he stopped in October to marry Jessica Biel. He said fans can expect an album similar to 2006’s FutureSex/LoveSounds.
He added: “Some of what we touched on on the last album with the interludes and pieces that would connect one song to another song, we’ve really gone deep on that part of the process. A lot of the songs are really two-in-one.“
He also revealed how he came up with the album title. He said: “I was playing some of the stuff for my friends and they would come in and out of the studio and I’d say, ‘What do you think of this?’ And my best friend said, ‘This is music that you can see,’ and for some reason that stuck with me.“
Timberlake had his first concert since 2007 on Saturday, a charity show in New Orleans. He will play another show after his Grammys performance at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles.
