At his latest William Rast fashion show, [artist id=”1231683″]Justin Timberlake[/artist] admitted there is a “blatant correlation” between music and fashion — however, for the time being, Timberlake is more focused on the clothes and less worried about putting out new music.
He hasn’t put out a solo album since 2006’s FutureSex/LoveSounds, but he said he isn’t going to force the tunes out. “You know, music is … music exploration, I find that when it comes up … it comes up like a freight train,” he said. “So when it does, I definitely won’t run from it.”
However, the bottom line is that Timberlake has no plans to release his own new music anytime soon. In addition to his fashion empire, he’s also busy promoting acts on his Tennman label, like Esmée Denters and Free Sol. “Right now I’m enjoying working with new artists, working with some of the acts that I have signed to my little label, which I just started,” he explained.
Meanwhile, Timberlake and business partner Trace Ayala will be concentrating on growing their successful William Rast brand. “I know, for me, with the label is just keep expanding,” Ayala said. “We just signed an eyewear deal, so we’re working on eyewear. It’s really growing fast.”
“Just give a little flavor here and there to go a little deeper and build a collection where we hope to go,” Timberlake continued. “We want to have our own furniture. We want to design interiors on cars. We want to go as far as we can with this brand.”
