"The album that I'm about to put out—if you think my work on the Michael Jackson album is something you have no idea what I'm about to unleash," he claims of his upcoming project entitled Opera Noir. "The best way I can describe it is this is my Purple Rain. And I'm going to have a movie to go with it. And wait 'til you hear the director who is doing it. It's going to really bug you out!"
Timbaland adds that he's almost done with the project and hopes to have something released by the end of the year. But don't expect any trend-chasing guests to pop up on Opera Noir.
"I'll give it another two months because right now I'm putting the finishing touches on it," he says. "And the cool thing about it is there are no features, only me and my artists on it. This is some of the best music you will hear over the last 15 years. I've been going to different studios and letting different people hear the tracks. You can go around and ask. I've very excited about this album."  OPERA NOIR
