Justin Timberlake sparked rumors that he was working on a new album when he posted a picture in the studio with Pharrell on March 18th. That rumor train keeps rolling after he posted another photo on Instagram today (March 21st), revealing he was in the studio writing music with Little Big Town.
Timberlake snapped a pic with two of the band’s four members, Karen Fairchild and Kimberly Schlapman, in the background. He explained in the caption, “NBD… Just writing with@littlebigtown This band is the truth!! So good!!!!” It looks like Timberlake is breaking his own studio rule, which jokingly included “No Snapchapping, no Instabamming and no Swittering.”
What exactly he’s working on remains to be seen. It could be two different albums, one country and one pop, or one big super album with a mish-mash of genres. Timberlake’s long-time producer Timbaland said he would be open to making a country album with the artist, but Pharrell’s studio visit throws a pop kink into that country idea.
Whatever the case may be, as long as Timberlake is back in the studio working on the follow-up to 2013’s The 20/20 Experience, we’re happy.
