We are. We definitely are. Not in that super-active way where we’re setting dates and making decisions, but we’re accumulating stuff and writing. Our hope is to maybe get something new, I don’t know how much, to bring to Fest. If we don’t pull that off then next year we’ll put out something bigger.

An interview with Justin Timberlake's manager outlines the entire process of releasing his new album. There's a lot of insider-baseball stuff in there, but it's quite interesting to read.
