London: Singer-actor Justin Timberlake says he has no plans to release music in the near future and is unsure when he will return to his pop career.
His last record "Until the End of Time" was released in 2007.
"Does a painter makes a painting because he has to make it by December 21st? No, he doesn`t. It happens when it pours out of him. That`s how music is for me ... I never stop making music. I don`t know what else to tell you, except that I just don`t know in what capacity I want to be involved anymore..."
"All I`m saying is, in very simple terms, I`ll know when I know. And until I know, I don`t know when I`ll put another album out," femalefirst.co.uk quoted him as saying.
Despite enjoying acting in his upcoming film "The Social Network", Timberlake believes he has to work even harder to land film roles because of his musical background.
"I did a marathon of testing for the film. I tested more than anyone. I have to fight against my music career - I`m cognizant of that. But I didn`t care. I loved the part and I wanted to work with David Fincher, the director, so bad that I was like, `We can read this scene butt-naked if you guys want.`"
