Just a few weeks ago, Justin Timberlake announced he was back in the music business ready to produce more music. Although his publicist denied that he had begun recording a new album last summer, Timberlake revealed on January 14 in an open letter that he had actually begun working on “20/20” in June of last year.
The album cover is a black and white snap which features Justin dressed in black tie, with his face partially obscured by an optician's eye testing machine. The singer debuted the record's artwork on his official website through the interactive image.
Timberlake will perform at the Grammy Awards this Sunday, February 10th, after making his official live comeback in five years Saturday night, debuting two new tracks at the DirecTV Super Bowl concert in New Orleans.
At the concert this weekend, some speculated he called Britney Spears a bitch when talking about an ex-lover:
"Sometimes in life, you think you found the one," Timberlake reportedly told the crowd before launching into the song. "But then one day you find out that she is just some bitch."
Timberlake denied he was talking about Britney. "OK. I see you. Wouldn't disrespect ANYONE personally. Ever," he tweeted on Feb. 3, alluding to his comments the night before. "#Relax #ItsBritneyBitch I do love that saying though *with accent* #Respect"
The 20/20 Experience Track list
"Pusher Love Girl"
"Suit & Tie" (featuring Jay-Z)
"Don't Hold the Wall"
"Let the Groove Get In"

The album finds him working with producer Timbaland again, responsible for the bulk of “FutureSex” and a string of hits ranging from the 1990s into the present.
