When he isn’t getting into trouble snapping pictures in voting booths, Justin Timberlake is actually an incredible popstar, husband, and father.

While we’re just getting over the singer’s partner, Jessica Biel, and her hilarious dig at her husband’s voting booth faux pas, and the couple’s cute AF date nights, it seems that Justin has been chatting all about his new music and now our excitement levels are seriously rising.

Sitting down with with Variety, Justin, who is currently shooting a film with Woody Allen in New York, opened up about his long awaited new album, the collaborators, and what’s been inspiring him (which, btw, is so totally adorable).

Firstly the singer spoke about how his life has changed since having a baby and it’s hitting us in the feels.

Omg, this is too sweet. It’s so great to see Justin putting his family first and, as he says, it’s wonderful that he knows that it’s a luxury that he’s able to do that.

However, fatherhood hasn’t only changed the way that Justin approaches the logistics of his career.

Expanding on how his worldwide smash “Can’t Stop the Feeling” came about, JT explained that it was all down to his son, Silas.

Justin also revealed that he’d been working in the studio with frequent collaborators Timberland, Pharrell Williams, and Max Martin, who worked with Justin on “Can’t Stop the Feeling.”

Describing his new music as “more singular,” Justin warned that there wasn’t a release date set in stone, however.

Pharrell Williams, who is working with Justin on the project, also said that he felt that Justin was being more personal and self-reflective on this new material.

Eek! This makes us so excited to hear what Justin Timberlake has been cooking up in the studio. The singer hasn’t released an album since 2013’s double record The 20/20 Experience, and, by the sounds of it, becoming a parent and his family has really influenced the places he’s writing from. So. Exciting!

You can catch Justin Timberlake starring in Trolls, which is in theaters now.
