No word yet on whether the single drop precedes an impending album announcement. Regardless, the arrival of "Can't Stop This Feeling" marks the first new material from Justin Timberlake since his two-part 20/20 Experience from 2013.
It had been hinted at last year that some of Timberlake's new music could be a little bit country, according to an interview with regular studio collaborator Timbaland. The producer had noted at the time: "He's from Tennessee, I'm from Virginia. It's only right that we try to tap into what we was raised in."
As for Trolls, it had previously been revealed that Timberlake was attached to the Dreamworks property as a voice for one of the film's main characters. The pop star is also the movie's executive music producer, and he's expected to deliver original music for its soundtrack. The film is scheduled for a November 2016 release.
