After first teasing about releasing a new single in a short clip where he was holding large cue cards, pop/dance superstar Justin Timberlake now debuts the "Take Back the Night" from his "The 20/20 Experience" sequel. The song is six-and-a-half-minutes of funky, disco-dance music reminiscent of the late King of Pop Michael Jackson's "Off The Wall" era.
"Take Back the Night" officially becomes the first single off "The 20/20 Experience - 2 of 2", which features 11 new songs and a "surprise" track. A combination album, "The 20/20 Experience - The Complete Experience", is also being released containing all the 21 tracks from the first and second installments of JT's record for 2013.
"I originally recorded a massive amount of material and decided on the 20 tracks that I wanted on the album over a year ago. But, when I was mixing and going through all of the songs there were so many that I loved - I couldn't resist. . . . I had to throw in something extra on the 2nd half," Timberlake revealed.
JT and his good pal and collaborator Jay-Z will perform as double headliners at the Wireless Festival on July 14 at London's Olympic Park, which serves as the special preview of their joint "Legends of the Summer" stadium tour that will run until August 16. Afterwards, JT will fly back to London for the Apple's iTunes Festival free concert series in September, just before he goes on his massive solo North America tour that kicks off on October 31 in Montreal.
