The famed Hollywood filmmaker, who directed JT in Oscar-winning 'The Social Network', is back at the helm of his new music video.
Justin Timberlake has just revealed that he's working with his "The Social Network" director David Fincher for his much-anticipated "Suit & Tie" music video. This exciting detail was disclosed by the pop/dance superstar a week after he was spotted with his collaborator Jay-Z on the set of the video shoot.
It will be the famed Hollywood director's first music video since he directed Nine Inch Nails' "Only" back in 2005. Widely-acclaimed for films "Seven", "Fight Club" and "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button", Fincher has his illustrious career started in making music videos, coming up with such iconic clips as Madonna's "Express Yourself" and "Vogue", George Michael's "Freedom '90" and Paula Abdul's "Forver Your Girl", "Straight Up" and "Cold Hearted", Billy Idol's "Cradle of Love" and Michael Jackson's "Who Is It?".
"Suit & Tie" marks Timberlake's return to the music scene since his last album "FutureSex/LoveSounds" back in 2006. The Timbaland-produced track is the first single off his third studio effort entitled "The 20/20 Experience", set to be released on March 19. The music video currently being worked on by Timberlake and Fincher follows a 5-minute lyric video that was released following the song's premiere three weeks ago.
JT is set to perform in a pre-Super Bowl concert on Saturday night before he goes onstage at the Grammys on February 10. With his music career back in the upswing, he's also not easily letting go of his recently-acquired movie actor status, starring in the upcoming Coen Brothers film "Inside Llewyn Davis".
