You never know, it might not be as pretentious as it sounds.
Justin Timberlake has announced that he’s written a book which is a collection of “anecdotes, reflections, and observations on his life and work”.
The book is titled ‘Hindsight: & All The Things I Can’t See In Front Of Me’ and will be released on October 30 through HarperCollins.
The collection will contain words from Timberlake about his life and “hundreds of candid images from his personal archives that range from his early years to the present day, in locations around the world, both on and off the stage”.
The book was co-written with Sandra Bark who has worked with Kat Von D and Cameron Diaz on their books.
In a statement, Timberlake said of the book: “I can’t help that my music shows who I am in this moment, what I’m drawn to, what I’m wondering about. I don’t want to help it. What you hear in the words, what you feel in those songs—that’s what I was feeling when I wrote them. I want you to see me, just like I want to see you”. Whatever that means.
It’s already been a busy year for Timberlake. He released his fifth solo album ‘Man Of The Woods‘ in February. In a three-star review, NME wrote: “Do not be fooled by JT’s new outdoorsy image. The smell of aged leather, woodsmoke and school orienteering trips might ooze flagrantly out of the soul marvel’s new look, but he’s still the funky pop magician we know and love.
