Thus tweeted Justin Timberlake, who on Thursday seemed - perhaps - poised to announce that he will release his first new album in nearly seven years.

Fans of the pop star and actor - who since 2006's FutureSex/LoveSounds, his second solo album, has been busier in the latter category - were directed to a video in which Timberlake, seemingly in a recording studio, notes that he has "only done two albums in 10 years." He adds, "I don't want to put anything out that I feel is something I don't love. ...You have to wait for it."

At the end, he repeated: "I'm ready." A countdown on his site suggests that he'll provide more details at 12 a.m. Monday.

Online, certainly, there was plenty of speculation. MTV.com noted, "It looks like Justin Timberlake's six-year hiatus from radio is officially over," while the Huffington Post observed that he could also be "talking about a collaboration with MySpace"; Timberlake is an investor in the company.

There was also buzz of a new single with Beyonce and Jay-Z, though no mention of that was made in Timberlake's video or on his site.

Stay tuned ...
