Timbaland has revealed details on his upcoming album Shock Value 2.

The Grammy-winning producer has opened up about his third solo studio album, discussing his inspiration behind the project and single 'Morning After Dark', according to SOHH.

The 38-year-old said: "My overall vision for Shock Value 2 was to make it better than the first one if I could. And it was a blessing, I got most of the artists I wanted to work with.

"The first single from Shock Value 2 is 'Morning After Dark' - the reason I picked 'Morning After Dark' for the first single is, that record has the most unique sound from the whole album.

"And when I kept looking at my new artist, SoShy, her whole image fits, like, that song where the song is kinda hard, but not hard, but sexy. She just fit in 'Morning After Dark', she actually came up with the concept of the track. I had the track, but she came up with the concept and I had blended in the concept of wanting to be cool to make the hook kinda talking about a vampire... That is a Timbaland signature record."

Shock Value 2 is to be released on December 4.
