Justin TImberlake will release a new album on March 15.  Several of the songs are apparently clocking in around 7 to 8 minutes.  That's a bit long for a pop album.  His latest single, Mirrors, comes in over 8 minutes.  But, that doesn't bother Timberlake.  He tells Capital FM:

"When we were making the record I said, 'If Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin can do 10-minute songs and Queen can do 10-minute songs then why can't we?' We'll figure out the radio edits later.'"

The pop-star calls another legendary musician his idol, "'m not gonna speak for Bob Dylan - he's one of my idols - but from my perspective, as a fan, it seems to me that he started creating music that made him feel like another person and that's what it should do."
