Timbaland: 'New Album Reports Are Premature'
Superproducer Timbaland has warned fans not to expect a new album from him anytime soon - because he's too busy.
The Apologize beatmaker, real name Timothy Mosley, recently confirmed plans for a follow-up to the hit 2007 release Shock Value.
But he is urging fans not to get too excited, because completion on the project is a long way off due to all the production work he's been taking on.
He says, "Man, I'm so in demand that people are making up albums just to try and keep up with me!
"What people are reading out there (about releasing a new album) is nonsense. I'm only just starting to think about Shock Value 2, just recording and putting some ideas together, so there are definitely no song titles, release date, or any other news related to the album.
"When Shock Value 2 finally does exist in the real world, everybody's gonna hear it from me."
Timbaland has worked with a host of stars in the last 12 months, including Madonna, Jay-Z, Pussycat Dolls, T-Pain and Jennifer Hudson.
