Yes, it’s true. Justin Timberlake is back. Tell all the Pitchfork-esque indie singers to hide for the next few months. JT had the internet ablaze with rumors and excitement yesterday when news of him working on Beyonce’s new album surfaced via GQ. Since then, talk of a potential Jay-Z collaboration has circulated — though no official confirmation has been released. JT then proceeded to vaguely post today’s date with 9:01 PST. The video below is what he gave us.
“I’m the one who sits and is obsessive about it before you even get to hear it. As close as I get to it, I don’t know that I can physically torture myself year in and year out and expect it to fulfill me the way that it does, and the way that it is right now. I don’t want to put anything out that I think is something I don’t love. You just don’t get that everyday, you have to wait for it. I’m ready.”
Who knows what the next countdown is for, but we’ll be getting something in three days. In other words, midnight/early Monday morning.
