Justin Timberlake is both voicing a character and serving as executive music producer on DreamWorks’ upcoming animated movie Trolls. He wrote and recorded several original songs for the film, and one of them, “Can’t Stop The Feeling,” is now being released as a single. Produced and written with Top 40 wizards Max Martin and Shellback, Timberlake’s first new track since 2013 is a reliably dancefloor-ready radio jam, and you can hear it below.
“I have always envisioned bringing the two worlds of film and music together for one epic event,” Timberlake says in a Trolls press release that misuses the word epic. The Trolls soundtrack is out 9/23 via RCA Records. It will also include Timberlake and Kendrick’s cover of “True Colors,” a hit for Cyndi Lauper in 1986. And Timberlake is also working on a new full-length with Timbaland and Pharrell, which could be out later this year.
