After teasing it out, in various different forms, for the better part of a week, Justin Timberlake has just announced his first new album since 2006′s ridiculously good FutureSex/LoveSounds. In an open letter on his website, Timblerlake writes that he started work on the new LP last summer, that it’s called The 20/20 Experience, and that it’ll be out later this year. He’s also dropped the first single from the LP, “Suit & Tie.” It’s a lush party song with production from JT’s old collaborator Timbaland and a guest verse from Jay-Z. But it’s not the warped sci-fi synth-funk of his last album. Instead, it’s slick and aspirational dancefloor R&B that sounds like Timberlake’s nod toward the godawful-boring mid-2000s grown-and-sexy moment. The dead of winter is a weird time to be hearing a song like this for the first time, and that could be warping my perception, but I have to say: Not great! Hear the song and read the open letter at justintimberlake.com.
The “Suit & Tie” single is out now at iTunes.
After 6+ years of waiting, Justin Timberlake is finally back with new material. “Suit & Tie” is the name of the new single, features Jay-Z & was produced by Timbaland. JT’s forthcoming 3rd album, The 20/20 Experience, is due later this year.
“This year is an exciting one for me. As you probably have heard through the “grapevine,” I’m gearing up for a big 2013.
Back in June of last year, I quietly started working on what is now, my next journey with that thing I love called MUSIC.
The inspiration for this really came out of the blue and to be honest, I didn’t expect anything out of it. I just went into the studio and started playing around with some sounds and songs. It was probably the best time I’ve had in my career… Just creating with no rules and/or end goal in mind and really enjoying the process.
What I came up with is something I couldn’t be more excited about! It is full of inspiration that I grew up listening to and some newfound muses that I’ve discovered along the way.
I’m calling it “The 20/20 Experience,” and it’s coming out this year.” - Justin Timberlake
