Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake, Nas and Timbaland snapped working together in recording studio

Timberlake is due to release a new album in September

Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake, Nas and Timbaland have been photographed working together in the recording studio.

Roc Nation executive Lenny S posted the candid image on his Instagram page yesterday (June 5) with the following caption: “JAY x JT x NAS x TIMBO Rat Pack shit. For some this is “Work”… For us it’s just Fun. #RocNation.”

Timberlake has recently revealed he will be releasing a new album in September – just six months after his comeback LP ‘The 20/20 Experience’ hit Number One on the UK albums chart in March (2013). Timbaland co-produced every track on that album.

Meanwhile, Jay-Z and Timberlake are due to hit the road together next month (July) on their Legends Of The Summer Stadium Tour. They’ll kick off with a headline set at London’s Wireless Festival on July 14 before crossing the Atlantic for 14 North American dates.

Then in October, Timberlake will embark on The 20/20 Experience World Tour, his first solo jaunt in six years. So far, 26 dates across North America have been confirmed, but promoters Live Nation are expected to announce dates in the UK, Europe, Australia and South America soon.
