Justin Timberlake has teased his musical return, with new single ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling’ due to be revealed on Friday (May 6).
Timberlake has been dropping hints over the song on Twitter and suggested yesterday (Wednesday) that the song would arrive in two days time. In recent months the musician and actor has posted pictures of himself in the studio with producers Timbaland and Pharrell Williams.
Various reports online suggest that ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling’ was written by Max Martin and will be taken from the soundtrack to new animated film Trolls. Timberlake provides the voice of main character Branch in the Dreamworks movie, which also features Anna Kendrick and will be released in November.
Timberlake’s last new music came in 2013 with the release of ‘The 20/20 Experience’. The double album featured singles ‘Suit & Tie’ as well as ‘Mirrors’.

The hip-hop producer said he was considering heading into the studio with the singer, in an interview with TMZ, following Timberlake’s performance of ‘Drink You Away’ with country singer Chris Stapleton at the CMA Awards.
“It’s (‘Drink You Away’) is now starting to be one of the biggest songs,” he told the showbiz website before he suggested that the pair could record a country album. “Now that you put it out there, why not?,” he added.
“We are country. He’s from Tennessee, I’m from Virginia. It’s only right that we try to tap into what we was raised in.”
