Just a few days ago we learned officially from Justin Timberlake himself that he is about to release some new music … late tonight, he did just that. JT has teamed up with Jay-Z (as rumored) and dropped a NEW SONG titled Suit & Tie. The song is available for purchase on iTunes HERE but you can click above to preview the song in full (for as long as the embed stays online on You Tube). It starts out kinda … weird … with an slowed down, odd intro … but once the song kicks in, it’s actually a decent jam. Justin Timberlake is back, y’all. Are you ready?
UPDATE: Justin is also confirming the forthcoming release of a new album titled The 20/20 Experience due out later this year in an open letter he penned to fans, click below to read the full text of this open letter/announcement.
An Open Letter to you (the fans):
I hope this gets to you the right way. It’s the only way I know to do it. Some people may criticize me for the last 3 days. But it was fun, right?? Right?!?! Besides, I’d rather speak directly to all of you. And, who can knock me for having a little bit of fun with it?
Well… No more teasing. Although, it was A LOT of fun. (Did I mention that I’m having fun with this?? Ha!)
*Makes a serious face*
So, here goes:
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.
I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed making it.
That’s all I’m giving you for now… I know, I know! Again, with the teasing!!!
Get ready. This is going to be fun (well, at least it is for me).
