Justin Timberlake has been a pretty busy guy as of late, trying on his acting hat and even working as music supervisor/composer for The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea, an upcoming film directed by Bill Purple.
But today, we caught word that the former ‘N SYNCer may be working on a new album. Producer Jim Beanz spilled the beans (pun intended) to Digital Spy earlier today, stating, “When I get back to the States I’m going to be helping out on Shock Value 3 with Timbaland and the Justin Timberlake project.”
He went on to say, “It’s still in the early stages, but they have a lot of tracks. While I’ve been over here in the UK they’ve been working, so by the time I get back they’ll have a whole load of ideas and I’m going to have to catch up!”
Update: According to Idolator, Timberlake’s publicist refuted Beanz claims, stating “there are currently no plans for a new album, though JT is working with Timbaland on tracks for Shock Value 3.” Le sigh.
