Justin Timberlake has dropped the official video for “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” the singer’s first new single since 2013.
Helmed by legendary music video director Mark Romanek, “Can’t Stop the Feeling” follows Timberlake on a exquisitely lensed, colorful tour to everyday places like a laundromat, diner, barbershop and Los Angeles landmark Randy’s Donuts, with a vibrant individual dancing along to the Trolls single at every stop. All the revelers eventually end up congregating with Timberlake below a highway underpass where they dance together to the Hot 100-topping track.
Timberlake initially debuted “Can’t Stop the Feeling” with a “first listen” video that starred his Trolls cast mates – Anna Kendrick, James Corden, Ron Funches, Kunal Nayyar and Icona Pop – dancing along to the new single. Timberlake also debuted the song live at the Eurovision Song Contest on Sunday.
Timberlake executive produced, voiced a character and contributed several songs to the Trolls soundtrack, which arrives September 23rd, the same day as the animated film. The soundtrack also boasts Timberlake and actress Anna Kendrick’s acoustic cover of Cyndi Lauper’s “True Colors,” which the duo debuted live during a footage screening at the Cannes Film Festival. Ariana Grande and Gwen Stefani will also appear on the disc.

Justin Timberlake has confirmed that he’s working on his fifth album, which goes back to his Tennessee roots.
