While promoting ‘The 20/20 Experience’ across the pond, Justin Timberlake shared that one of his good friends would be taking part in the production of the upcoming album.

Producer Timbaland will be the album’s main producer, Timberlake revealed during an interview with Capital FM radio station. “The whole album is all me and him,” he states.

This isn’t the first time the two worked together. Timbo crafted 10 out of the 12 tracks for JT’s smash album, ‘FutureSex/LoveSounds,’ back in 2006.

As for what to expect from the new LP, it will be a combination of old and new sounds he’s known for. “This album goes in a lot of different directions,” JT explains. “There’s probably a little reminiscing of the first album [‘Justified’] and then a little bit reminiscing of the second album [‘FutureSex/LoveSounds’] and new stuff.”

This summer, Justin will embark on a joint tour with Jay-Z called the  Legends of the Summer Tour. “The idea is [from] Elton John and Billy Joel, who went on tour together and the way they mixed each other’s songs,” Timberlake says. “So I don’t want to give too much away but it’s going to be a completely collaborative show.”

Mr. ‘Suit & Tie’ also revealed that he is working with Pharrell Williams on his  forthcoming project. Could Justin appear on the ‘Despicable Me 2′ soundtrack? We’ll have to wait and see.

‘The 20/20 Experience’ arrives March 19.
