Posted By on February 8, 2008

{mosimage}Timbaland gathered five Grammy Award nominations for his last release, "Shock Value" and now he is going to be making a mobile album for Verizon Wireless. As the "Mobile Producer in Residence" for Verizon, Timbaland will produce a song a month for the entire year of 2008, working with a different artist for each song. Not only will the songs be available on V-Cast, but the behind the scenes footage for the "Making Of" the tracks will be viewable. Timbaland says he wanted to reach more people because "every place don't get a CD [but] everybody has a mobile phone." Not to mention that he can make history because "Just producing a mobile album has never been done. I'm the first to ever do it."

Timbaland talked about the project saying, "I'm just going to have fun with it," he says. "I'll just do what comes in mind." "How I prepare for [the new album] is, I just do it, like any other album," Timbaland says. "The only difference is it's immediate."
