Justin Timberlake: My Return To Music Will Be 'A Special Thing'

Justin Timberlake is back! The singer performed a surprise show in NYC on Aug. 31 the night he introduced his newly signed band, FreeSol.

He brought "SexyBack," but don't quite wait for Justin Timberlake to bring his music back - just yet.

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 interview Wednesday night, while appearing at the premiere for "Trouble With the Curve."

Timberlake is engaged to actress Jessica Biel. He's appeared in a handful of movies in recent years, from "The Social Network" to "Friends With Benefits." He stars 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. He's appeared on songs by other musicians but has not released his own music since.

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," he said.
