Due March 27 via Mosley Music Group/Blackground/Interscope, the project will be introduced later this week by first single "Give It to Me," featuring Justin Timberlake and Nelly Furtado.
The album is said to be "sequenced like a movie" and encompasses a wide range of genres. "He ventures into the alternative world and the real pop world," Timbaland right-hand-man Nate "Danja" Hills previously told Billboard.com. "He has so many different sounds from hip-hop, to pop, to rock on this album. And he pulls every single one of them off perfectly.
Beyond Furtado and Timberlake, guests on "Shock Value" include Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg, the Hives, Elton John, Fall Out Boy, M.I.A, She Wants Revenge and Kerri Hilson, who is signed to Mosley Music Group.
Timbaland has not released an album under his own name since 2003's "Under Construction II," a collaboration with longtime partner Magoo. He is presently on tour with Timberlake and debuting snippets from "Shock Value" during his mini-set each night.
