Now that Justin Timberlake‘s ‘Suit & Tie’ featuring Jay-Z has landed, there’s more news about JT’s upcoming album, the follow up to 2006’s ‘FutureSex/LoveSounds.’ The platter will be called ‘The 20/20 Experience’ and it will be out in 2013. The singer/actor has been quietly working on it since June of last year. What a secret keeper! He managed to keep it under wraps for quite a while, now didn’t he?

The song landed last night. Check out our review — we suggest you give it several listens in order to digest it as it’s not a “love on first listen track,” due to its ’70s-style, throwback vibe!

Below is the full text of Timberlake’s letter to fans. He’s excited, and he wants you to be, as well.

‘The 20/20 Experience’ — sounds like a cool title. We know what’s 20/20, right? Hindsight! We can’t wait to hear how that informs the album.

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).
