Timberlake working on new album

Justin Timberlake is reportedly working on a new solo album.

The singer-turned-actor has been working with producers Timbaland and Jim Beanz on a set of "crazy" tracks for his third solo album.

Jim told website Digital Spy: "When I get back to the States I'm going to be helping out on 'Shock Value 3' with Timbaland and the Justin Timberlake project.

"It's still in the early stages, but they have a lot of tracks. While I've been over here in the UK they've been working, so by the time I get back they'll have a whole load of ideas and I'm going to have to catch up!"

The record will be Justin's first since 2006's 'FutureSex/LoveSounds', which yielded hits including 'SexyBack' and 'What Goes Around… Comes Around'. Jim said Justin is not trying to top his previous work, but rather compete with today's pop music.

He added: "There are certain artists who can get inside with great charisma and energy and make great music every time. So it's not really about topping the last record, it's more about topping music that comes on the radio.

"Everything is so similar that it's about topping that and doing something different, and that's what they are going for."

While concentrating on his film career, Justin has appeared in movies including 'Bad Teacher', 'The Love Guru' and 'The Social Network'.
