It’s official: 2013 is now the greatest year ever.
Justin Timberlake has announced that later this year he will, finally, at long last, with much anticipation, after many years leaving us all wanting more, release the follow-up to his spectacular 2006 album FutureSex/LoveSounds.
The 20/20 Experience has been rumoured as of late, with the talk reaching fever pitch last week when he tweeted that he’d be announcing something on Thursday afternoon, which turned out to be that he was working on new music, though he did reveal a 3 day counter which today revealed this new track from the album featuring Jay-Z and Timbaland! He also revealed a personal letter about his new music which you can read below.
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).
