Justin Timberlake often goes missing from the music scene for years at a time; he returned from a 7-year hiatus in 2013 to release two platinum selling albums, The 20/20 Experience 1 and 2, and hasn’t been heard from much since then.
That changes tonight, as JT releases “Can’t Stop The Feeling,” co-written and produced by Max Martin—Taylor Swift, “Bad Blood;” The Weeknd, “Can’t Feel My Face”–for the forthcoming Dreamworks animated film, Trolls. No word yet on whether or not this is the faux-kickoff for the rollout for a new Justin Timberlake album (the three years since the 20/20 Experience albums would be the shortest time Timberlake has ever taken between solo releases), but his return would certainly be welcomed. Remember, photos of Timberlake and Pharrell–who produced JT’s entire solo album, Justified–in the studio surfaced last month, leading fans to believe an end to his album hiatus was imminent.
While the world waits on an answer to that question, listen to Timberlake’s bubbly new single here on Apple Music, or here on his website, where the music is accompanied by a nifty studio music video.
