Together with his Lonely Island troupe writing partners, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer, "Saturday Night Live" star Andy Samberg will work with Justin Timberlake on their debut album "Incredibad". Other big names which will also be featured on the upcoming LP are T-Pain, Norah Jones, Jack Black, E-40 and The Strokes' frontman Julian Casablancas.

"We definitely wanted it to be a classic comedy album, but also one you put on more than once," Andy told MTV News. "We've gone out of our way to make it musically pleasing. We started on a few songs that were not funny enough, for us, but they sounded pretty cool. And the bottom line for the project was, 'Is it going to be funny first and music second?' I think it's 95 percent music, and we hope people would throw it on and bump it."

Lead single off the record will be a song called "Ji-- in My Pants". Commenting on his work on the song, Andy said, "When I first heard that beat, it sounded like a Timbaland beat. My first reference was a Missy Elliott club jam, and then we threw some generic Euro Brit dudes on top, because, to be honest, we don't have the chops to crush a Timbaland beat."

"Incredibad" is due for U.S. release on February 10, 2009. It will include such songs as "Di-- in a Box", "Lazy Sunday" and "Natalie Raps".
