Al final resultó que sí había nuevo single de Justin Timberlake en camino y que la cuenta atrás que se podía ver desde hace días en su web avisaba de su llegada. La canción se llama “Suit & Tie”, está producida por Timbaland y cuenta con la colaboración de Jay-Z. A priori, combinación ganadora. Además, se ha comunicado de forma oficial que el tema sirve como primer adelanto de un próximo álbum de Timberlake, producido en su integridad por Timbo, que responderá al título de “The 20/20 Experience”. Sobre su fecha de lanzamiento aún no hay nada confirmado, más allá de que verá la luz a lo largo del 2013.
Justin ha acompañado el estreno de “Suit & Tie” de una carta abierta que se puede leer en su web y que os copiamos tal cual, en inglés, a continuación:
“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*
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).”
