Timberlake admitted he spent four years working on his latest album. He had written 100 songs, but landed on 18 tracks to be released.

“Making this album is different from any other one.… Different from making albums before because I would just go in for a block of time, and say this is what we made and this is what it is,” Timberlake said during an appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.”

“I was going back and forth,” he explained, so that he could still spend time with his wife, Jessica Biel, and their two kids. “Two weeks writing, coming back for a month, and just what we call writer camps where I would work with different songwriters, work with different producers, people that I’ve worked with before, people that I’ve never worked with before.”

While Timberlake has been touring, Biel has been filming in New York City for her upcoming series, “The Better Sister.”

Biel was photographed filming in Central Park on Monday.
