Timbaland to release movie with upcoming album

Hitmaker Timbaland is set to serve up a double treat for fans by releasing a movie to accompany his forthcoming album Opera Noir. The Cry Me a River producer, who worked on the new posthumous Michael Jackson album Xscape, is hoping to unveil the double project by the end of this year (14) and he is convinced it is some of his best work to date.
He tells Vibe.com, “The album that I’m about to put out – if you think my work on the Michael Jackson album is something you have no idea what I’m about to unleash.
“The best way I can describe it is this is my Purple Rain (Prince classic). And I’m going to have a movie to go with it. And wait ’til you hear the director who is doing it. It’s going to really bug you out (surprise you)!”
Timbaland has worked with a host of big names over his 15-year career, including Justin Timberlake, Destiny’s Child and Jay Z, but he reveals his new album will not feature any superstar guests.
He continues, “Right now I’m putting the finishing touches on it. And the cool thing about it is there are no features, only me and my artists on it (sic).
“This is some of the best music you will hear over the last 15 years. I’ve been going to different studios and letting different people hear the tracks. You can go around and ask. I’m very excited about this album.”
