Justin Timberlake is staging a comeback with the upcoming release of his latest album, “Everything I Thought It Was,” marking his return since 2018’s “Man of the Woods.” Scheduled to drop on March 15 through RCA, the album features the lead single “Selfish,” accompanied by a music video directed by Bradley J. Calder, a notable collaborator of SZA. Timberlake collaborated with Louis Bell, Cirkut, Theron Thomas, and Maine’s Amy Allen in writing “Selfish,” co-producing the single with Bell and Cirkut.
In a conversation with Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1, Timberlake shared insights into the new album, describing it as a mix of heartfelt moments and enjoyable elements. He expressed his excitement, stating, “I think there are moments that are incredibly honest, but, also, there’s a lot of f****** fun on this album.”
Timberlake is set to perform on an upcoming Saturday Night Live episode hosted by Dakota Johnson. Despite considering the idea of hosting, he decided against it, emphasizing the special significance of the album. However, Timberlake acknowledged the likelihood of being drawn into a sketch or two, expressing his enthusiasm for any involvement with SNL. He reflected on his history with the show, having hosted five times and made numerous appearances.
