Justin Timberlake presents his first return to music in an official capacity in nearly seven years with the Jay-Z-assisted “Suit & Tie” – pulled from his recently announced new album The 20/20 Experience. The Timbaland-produced track dropped late Sunday night on an evening where attention was on the Golden Globes – a night celebrating various achievements from the world of TV and cinema – and seemed fitting given Timberlake’s musical absence was due in large part to an acting bug that saw him working on such films as The Social Network and Trouble with the Curve. You can stream the song in its entirety below. In addition, Timberlake posted an open letter to his fans via his website to share his thoughts on what he sees as a big 2013.

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).
