Justin Timberlake is ready to make music again.

Translation: Maybe this acting thing didn't go the way I planned.

In an black-and-white clip in which the camera follows Timberlake as he walks into the studio, the singer-actor talks about where his music career went.

"Someone asked me the other day, 'So are you just done with music?'" he says softly, his slight Southern accent audible. "It means more to me than anybody else in the world."

Have you broke that news to the new wife yet, JT?

"Like I've only done two albums in 10 years, that's the way I really look at it," he said on. "What does the next decade mean for me?

"I'm the one who sits and is obsessive about it before you even get to hear it," Timberlake said. "As close as I get to it, I don't know that I could physically torture myself that much year in and year out and expect it to fulfill me the way that it does and the way that it is right now.

"I don't wanna put anything out that I feel like is something that I don't love," he says. "You just don't get that every day. You have to wait for it. I'm ready."

Translation: Maybe this acting thing didn't go the way I planned.

There's now an official countdown to something. When we hear, you'll hear.
