Timbaland is already acknowledged as one of music's most inventive and distinctive creators.  Yet the artist/producer's forthcoming album, just his second solo album, promises to shock the world. Timbaland Presents Shock Value (Mosley Music Group/Blackground/Interscope) is set for release March 27, 2007.  The first single, "Give It To Me," featuring Justin Timberlake and Nelly Furtado, launches February 1.
 
"My mission is to blow up the boundaries and tear down the limits," says Timbaland.  "I'm taking my music outside of the box.  I'm not getting away from what I'm known for; I'm just going to a place where it's all about the music, not about the labels on the music.  That's why I call it Shock Value -- from the artists to the production, it will shock the system."
 
Timbaland is coming off producing the majority of the tracks, including the #1 "SexyBack," on Timberlake's #1 charting, multiplatinum FutureSex/LoveSounds album, which followed their work together on his previous smash Justified.  He is also a special guest on Timberlake's current 2007 FutureSex/LoveShow World Tour.  Timbaland's performance marks not only his first tour in many years and, his first world tour, but also the debut of some beats and original music from Shock Value.
 
Shock Value is sequenced like a movie, Timbaland reveals, with a non-stop flow that tells a story.  With off-the-wall beats, raps, hooks, and his signature sound, the album fuses genres from rap and hip-hop to pop, punk pop and garage rock to South Asian influences.  The album's guest artists range from Jay-Z and Snoop Dogg to Justin Timberlake and Nelly Furtado; from The Hives, She Wants Revenge and Fall Out Boy to Elton John (on piano) and newer artists such as Sri Lankan hip-hopper M.I.A. and Keri Hilson (the latter signed, as is Furtado, to Timbaland's Mosley Music Group, a joint venture with Interscope).
 
Timbaland's enormous, critically acclaimed success as a producer has resulted in hits by Missy Elliott ("The Rain"), Aaliyah ("If Your Girl Only Knew"), Ginuwine ("Pony"), Jay-Z ("Big Pimpin'"), Nas ("You Won't See Me Tonight"), Snoop Dogg ("Snoop Dogg [What's My Name, Pt. 2]"), Ludacris ("Rollout [My Business]"), Furtado ("Promiscuous") and many others.  As a headliner, he teamed with Magoo for 1997's groundbreaking Welcome To Our World, followed the next year by his solo debut, Tim's Bio.  Indecent Proposal (2001) and Under Construction, Pt. II (2002) were once again billed with Magoo.
 
The 38-date North American leg of the FutureSex/LoveShow World Tour, with opening act Pink, kicked off in San Diego, CA on January 8th and runs through March.
