Justin Timberlake announces album: ‘Everything I Thought It Was’

Justin Timberlake returns to the music scene. He does so with the announcement of a new album, ‘Everything I Thought It Was’, which will be his sixth album. This will also be his first studio album since ‘Man of the Woods’ in 2018.

The singer wanted to announce the album with a trailer narrated by actor Benicio Del Toro. In the 30-second video, Justin Timberlake appears with his back to the camera on a model of a gas station in the desert, where a painted sunset can also be seen in the distance. “What the hell is he looking at?” Del Toro asks in his voice-over.

The announcement of his return comes accompanied by a new song, ‘Selfish’, which he performed live during a concert this weekend in his hometown of Memphis. Although she has not yet published this song on digital platforms, everything seems to indicate that it is the main single from the album.

The artist will appear as a guest on Saturday Night Live this Saturday. Although he has hosted the show five times and has performed up to six times, he has not visited SNL since December 2013. Only his return to the music scene could end that streak.
