Once upon a time, Justin Timberlake was a recording artist. And now, after a lengthy hiatus, it seems he's ready and raring to make music again.

Guess he needed some alone time after marrying Jessica Biel to ensure she'd always have someone to open her pickle jars.


The clip features Justin walking around, recalling someone asking him, "So are you just, so are you just done? To music?" He explained he couldn't possibly do that, because music "means more to me than [it does to] anybody else in the world."

"I've only done two albums in 10 years ... What does the next decade mean for me?" he asks as he does a signature Aaron Sorkin walk-and-talk. And then he strides into a music studio and puts on a pair of headphones.

As Timberlake explains in voice over, "I don't want to put anything out that I feel like is anything I don't love. You just don't get that every day. You have to wait for it ... I'm ready."

Justin teased his fans with a tweet on Jan. 9, announcing the date the aforementioned video would drop but providing no other context:

So essentially what everyone got was a teaser to a teaser. And now his website has yet another one -- a countdown clock indicating something will happen in three days or so.

Over the summer, it was also rumored he was collaborating on a new album with mega-producer Timbaland. Since then, Justin has been busy getting married and trying to futilely relaunch MySpace.

Psst. Justin. 2005 wants its social media back. Don't fight it, bro.
