It's been six long years since FutureSex/LoveSounds cemented Justin Timberlake as a consummate popfessional, with its productive and prodigious musical collaboration with Timbaland and the wealth of eclectic earworms that have been bothering us since (in a good way, of course).

Today however, rumours abound that Justin Timberlake has been working "around the clock" with his old production buddy Timbaland, as well as other producers, in having masterminded and recorded "many more than a dozen new tracks" Naturally the situation at Sony is apparently very hush-hush, but while reports are sketchy and solid evidence is scarce, we here at The 405 are daring to dream.

The as of yet untitled album is apparently due out for the first quarter of 2013, via Sony's RVA label.
