Justin Timberlake brings his happy feet to his new feel-good jam “Can’t Stop The Feeling.” After announcing the single on his timeline in response to a fan’s tweet, the track made its worldwide debut at midnight on Thursday (May 5). And it’s accompanied with a celeb-rammed video.
The single will lead the charge for J.T.’s current venture, executive producing the music for the animated film Trolls. DreamWorks Animation’s 3D flick, based on the popular Troll dolls, will find Timberlake overseeing the creative direction of the movie’s tunes and lending his voice to several cuts on the soundtrack (due Sept. 23 on RCA Records). Timberlake and Anna Kendrick will also cover “True Colors” for a scene in the film.

“I have always envisioned bringing the two worlds of film and music together for one epic event [and] couldn’t be more excited that they will collide in DreamWorks’ Trolls,” said Timberlake at the time of the announcement. “This film is very special, the music is going to be very special and I can’t wait for everyone to experience it all.”
Trolls is set for release on Nov. 4, 2016 and the film’s co-stars Anna Kendrick, James Corden, Gwen Stefani and Ron Funches can all be spotted grooving along to the new tune, which can be seen below.
Timberlake wrote and produced “Can’t Stop The Feeling” with Max Martin and Shellback.
