JT spoke to Capital FM (via NME) about his upcoming album and musical influences, and said he ditched convention when putting together the new tracks. "When we were making the record I said, 'If Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin
can do 10-minute songs and Queen can do 10-minute songs then why can't
we?' We'll figure out the radio edits later."
Timberlake also shared how one of his idols, Bob Dylan, influenced The 20/20 Experience. "Music is for dreamers. You should be able to create another
world that you can live in. I'm not gonna speak for Bob Dylan... but from my perspective, as a fan, it seems to me that he
started creating music that made him feel like another person and
that's what it should do. [The studio] really is one place that you can
still go to that you can be completely free. You can lock yourself in a
room and make a whole other world."
The 20/20 Experience drops March 15.
