The singing superstar said his music-making process is fueled by life’s experiences and making an album “is a really big deal.”

“For me, personally, when I do sit down and decide to do it, it’s just a special thing,” he said in an Associated Press interview.

Mr. Timberlake is engaged to actress Jessica Biel and has appeared in several movies in recent years, from “The Social Network” to “Friends With Benefits.” Currently, he’s in “Trouble With the Curve,” alongside Clint Eastwood and Amy Adams.

His last album was 2006’s “FutureSex/LoveSounds,” a Grammy-winning record that launched three No. 1 hits and sold more than 4 million units in the United States. Since then, he has appeared on songs by other musicians but has not released his own music.

The 31-year-old said he’s unlike today’s artists, who constantly drop albums and singles: “I don’t know that I can pump them out every year.”
