After 3 Long Years, We Finally Get A New Justin Timberlake Song!

Just a month ago we got the most exciting news–Justin Timberlake may be working on new music! We found out because he posted a photo on Instagram of him hanging out with Pharrell Williams in a recording studio and everyone starting happily crying a river because it could possibly mean we are getting a fifth album from Timberlake.

Well, our predictions were sort of right because, after 3 long years, we finally get a new song from our favorite singer! His single is titled Can’t Stop the Feeling, which he released at midnight, and is part of the soundtrack for the upcoming Dreamworks film, Trolls, which JT stars in. This song is definitely going to be the new Happy so get ready to listen to it a million times over the summer!

This is his first single since he produced his album 20/20 Experience back in 2013. Now that JT’s hiatus is over, we can hope for more music and possibly another album! The electropop track, produced by his longtime companion Max Martin (he worked with Nsync), came with a music video featuring the cast of Dreamworks! We can see Anna Kendrick, Gwen Stefani,  Kunal Nayyar, Ron Funches, James Corden, and Icona Pop dancing to the very catchy song.

Along with playing one of the Trolls characters, the Sexyback singer is also the executive music producer for the movie’s soundtrack. He told The Morning Mash Up Show “When I’m making a record for myself, I don’t know, I feel like I have to take advantage of the fact that it’s done when I love every song.” Writing a movie’s soundtrack is definitely different from what he is used to but he is up to the challenge!

Trolls is set to be released in theaters on November 4th of this year and Timberlake couldn’t be more excited. In a press release, he stated “I have always envisioned bringing the two worlds of film and music together for one epic event. I couldn’t be more excited that they will collide. This film is very special, the music is going to be very special and I can’t wait for everyone to experience it all.” 

We could tell he was excited because he kept teasing us about his upcoming soundtrack on Twitter and Instagram, which is a bit unlike him. JT isn’t one to produce and tell but with Can’t Stop The Feeling, he has been advertising it for weeks! He even gave us a 15-second preview before he released the whole music video on May 6th.

The 35-year-old did mention that he was happy to be working in the studio again. “Working on this soundtrack inspired me to get back in because I was having so much fun making music for the movie that it kind of just started to bleed over and into maybe seeing what would happen if I were to make another record for myself.”

Watch the music video down below and get your dance shoes on because this is going to be the hit soundtrack for the summer. I Got a Feeling everyone is going to be singing this song soon, whether or not they actually like it. I mean, I know all the words to Happy but I’m not really a fan. That’s what happens with catchy songs!
