The singer posted a minute-long video on YouTube titled 'I'm Ready', where he discusses his extended break from the industry.
He said: "Look, I've only done two albums in ten years. That's the way I really look at it, what does the next decade mean for me?
"As close as I get to it I don't know if I could physically torture myself year in and year out and expect it to fulfil me the way that it does and the way that it is right now.
"I don't want to put anything out that I feel is something I don't love. You just don't get that every day. You have to wait for it. I'm ready."
A countdown clock has also appeared on his official website, showing that he will reveal new material on Monday (January 14).
It was recently reported that Timberlake's first album in over six years will come out 'sooner rather than later'.
