The heartthrob singer's record label is said to be pouring huge amounts of money into helping his star rise again.
Justin - who has taken the last couple of years off music to focus on his budding movie career - will be promoting new songs and announcing concert dates when he tours this summer.
A source close to the star - who is currently romancing actress Cameron Diaz - is quoted in Britain's Daily Star newspaper as saying: "Justin is getting wheeled out on promo duties again with no expense spared."
"A fortune is being invested on billboards - including one that's five stories high, which is destined for London's West End."
The insider added: "Justin will be releasing this summer, some time after the start of June, and will come to England to promote the first single."
"And he will announce international arena tour dates, commencing at the end of 2006 or start of 2007."
Justin himself recently admitted he had needed a break from the music industry. He said: "I just needed time off from touring and promoting. I needed the time away from myself, too."
