The 'Mirrors' singer's producer says they will use old and new material on the November release.
Justin Timberlake's producer has teased what fans can expect from the second volume of his album 'The 20/20 Experience' when it drops in November this year.
The 'Suit & Tie' singer worked with Timbaland and producer Jerome 'J-Roc' Harmon on his third studio album, and the latter says Justin will be using both new material and songs left over from the sessions for 'The 20/20 Experience' last year.
"Before we came to the 10 [tracks on volume one] that he wanted and the two bonus tracks, we had over 30, 40 tracks," Jerome Harmon told Billboard this week. "So I think he's going to go in, and we're going to take some of the stuff that we've already done, and of course create more music at the same time."
The producer, who worked with Justin on much of 'The 20/20 Experience', also revealed that his latest single 'Mirrors' was actually recorded some time ago.
"'Mirrors' was something we started working on in 2009 and he just shelved it," Jerome teased. "He's like, 'I'm gonna save this one, and this is gonna go on my album'.
"We never knew when he was going to put it out, we could have waited another 10, 15 years," he recalled. "but then he surprised us last year and said he was ready and he brought 'Mirrors' over to the project as well."
Justin admitted being left speechless after the huge sales of 'The 20/20 Experience' upon its release last month, with the record already being one of the top-sellers of 2013 so far.
