Justin Timberlake returns to music after six years

London: Justin Timberlake, who has been keeping busy with his acting assignments in Hollywood, is all set to make a comeback to music with his third studio album.

Timberlake, who took a break from his music to focus on his acting career, has appeared in films like `The Social Network`, `Friends with Benefit` and `In Time`, the Digital Spy reported.

"When I get back to the States I`m going to be helping out on Shock Value 3 with Timbaland and the Justin Timberlake project. It`s still in the early stages, but they have a lot of tracks. While I`ve been over here in the UK they`ve been working, so by the time I get back they`ll have a whole load of ideas and I`m going to have to catch up!," Timberlake said.

It will be Timberlake`s first since 2006`s `FutureSex/LoveSounds`
Timberlake is currently shooting `Runner Runner` alongside Ben Affleck.
