Anna Kendrick and Zooey Deschanel also appear on the revamped version of the disco hit, which appears on the soundtrack of recent Dreamworks movie Trolls, which was executive produced by Timberlake.
Timberlake has also joined Earth Wind & Fire for a new version of their disco classic ‘September’ recorded especially for the soundtrack album, which is released today (September 23).
The original version of ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling!’, Timberlake’s first new track since his two ’20/20 Experience’ albums of 2013 and 2014, came out in May. It peaked at Number One in the US and Number Two in the UK and has been named the fifth most-streamed song of the summer by Spotify.
Earlier this month (September), Timberlake said he was “absolutely” up for a collaboration with his ex-girlfriend Britney Spears.
Though perhaps surprisingly the two pop stars have never recorded an official duet together, Timberlake co-wrote, co-produced and sang backing vocals on ‘What It’s Like To Be Me’, a track from Spears’s 2001 album ‘Britney’.
