Couldn’t really start today with any news but this: Justin Timberlake released new music! After spending the latter half of last week teasing fans, last night the clock finally struck zero and the music world was treated to a new single from JT, “Suit and Tie” featuring Jay-Z. He also penned an open letter to fans announcing that his new album, The 20/20 Experience, would be released in 2013.

In the letter (which you can read in full on his website), Timberlake explains:

“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.”

Check out “Suit and Tie” for yourself, and let me know what you think in the comments. Was it worth the 6-year wait or are you a bit underwhelmed?
