So, as expected, Justin Timberlake released a new single this morning, entitled ‘Suit & Tie’, his first since 2007. It features the rap stylings of Jay-Z and the production skills of that Timbaland. Timberlake has also announced that he’s got a new album on the way, called ‘The 20/20 Experience’.
The single is available on iTunes now, or you can stream it via Timberlake’s website, where you’ll also find “an open letter to you (the fans)”, in which the singer says: “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”.
He continues: “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”.
