Justin Timberlake inspired Justin Bieber’s new album.
The ‘Sexy Back’ hitmaker stunned fans with his experimental sound on his second solo album ‘Future Sex/LoveSounds’ and 17-year-old Justin hopes to do the same with the follow up to his ‘My World 2.0’ album.
Justin told MTV: “I’m trying to create a new sound that people aren’t really used to hearing, so it might sound weird at first, but it’s going to be like when Justin Timberlake did.
“It was a new sound – acoustic guitar over hard drums. I want to find something that’s going to suit me and my fans are going to love and older people will like and younger people will like.
“But I’m always trying to keep my core fanbase, because the young people are what make everything cool. Old people look to young people, so trying to keep everyone happy.”
Justin also admitted he is a perfectionist and plans to record as many songs as he can until he finds a final 15 that he loves.
He explained: “It’s almost time for my next album, so then everything starts over again. We’ve already started working on it, but we’re going to be going in every day and working with new people and trying to find the best sound, because I’m going to be recording different styles, different things until I find a solid 15 songs that I love. I’m going to be recording as many songs as I possibly can.”
