The 'Mirrors' singer says that if 'The 20/20 Experience' is Marilyn Monroe, 'The 20/20 Experience - 2 of 2' is the deceased star's 'older evil twin sister.'
Justin Timberlake has told fans what to expect from his upcoming new album, "The 20/20 Experience - 2 of 2". The 32-year-old singer says that the new LP, which is set to arrive later this month, is the "hotter, older evil twin sister" of predecessor "The 20/20 Experience".
In an interview with New York Times, Timberlake compares his first installment of "The 20/20 Experience" to iconic star Marilyn Monroe. "If you could imagine you're 16 and she's everything you thought," he explains. "She's Marilyn Monroe and then you meet her older sister."
"Everything that's dark and wrong about her at that age is why you become infatuated with her," the husband of actress Jessica Biel continues.
Timberlake's new record, which has spawned a single called "Take Back the Night", will be released on September 27. The former NSYNC member is also set to perform at iTunes Festival in London at the end of this month.
He will then embark on a string of tour dates to promote the album. The tour kicks off on October 31 in Montreal.
