Justin Timberlake Booked for ‘Tonight Show’ Appearance Amid New Music Teasers

Justin Timberlake is heading back to late night! The “Mirrors” singer is set to join The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday (Jan. 25) as a guest alongside Molly Ringwald and musical guest Flo Milli.

Because Timberlake and Fallon are longtime friends, fans are speculating that Timberlake will use the late night appearance to announce a new album era. He’s been teasing fans via social media over the past week, wiping his Instagram clean before posting a series of photos from what looks like a music video set.

“EITIW,” he captioned the post, with fans theorizing that the single will be called “Everything I Thought It Was.” Redditors even tracked down a trademark application filed by a mysterious LLC early last year for that phrase, as well as for “Everything I Thought It Was…A Sonic Film.”

Should Timberlake release a new album, it would mark his sixth album and first since 2018’s Man of the Woods. That project marked his fourth consecutive No. 1 on the Billboard 200, where it charted for a total of 19 weeks. Just days after the album’s Feb. 2 release, he performed at the Super Bowl LII halftime show in Minneapolis. In September, Timberlake reunited with *NSYNC to release “Better Place” for the Trolls Band Together soundtrack, marking the group’s first musical release since 2002 (when the Neptunes remix of “Girlfriend,” featuring Nelly, arrived).
