Justin Timberlake has recruited Gwen Stefani, James Corden, Anna Kendrick and Zooey Deschanel for a revamped version of his hit single “Can’t Stop the Feeling!” Timberlake still dominates the disco-pop track, while the guest vocalists add brief lead lines and backing vocals over the bass-heavy groove.
“Feeling!” highlights the recently released soundtrack to Trolls, the upcoming animated movie starring all five performers. Timberlake executive-produced the album and performs on over half of its 13 tracks, including three other originals: “Hair Up,” “They Don’t Know” and “What U Workin’ With?”
Timberlake issued “Cant Stop the Feeling!”, his first new song since 2013’s The 20/20 Experience 2 of 2, in May. In a recent interview with BBC Radio 1Xtra, the singer explained that more new material is on the way – he’s recorded sessions with Pharrell Williams and Timbaland – though he isn’t sure what form the tracks will take.
“I don’t know exactly what it’s going to be yet ’cause we just really started,” he said. “I think it’s one of those things that’s just a feeling like you know it’s done when it’s done.”
He also teased a potential track with the Weeknd. “[He] and I have been talking about doing a collaboration soon. He’s working on an album. I don’t know if I’m supposed to say that,” Timberlake said. “He’s always in the studio anyway. But we’ve talked about doing something together.”
