Justin Timberlake's new album '20/20' is due out in March
REUTERS - Singer-turned-actor Justin Timberlake has set a March date for his comeback album - his first in more than six years.
RCA Records said on Tuesday "The 20/20 Experience," the former N'Sync boy band member's follow-up to 2006's "FutureSex/LoveSounds" and only his third album ever, would be released on March 19.
In recent years, Timberlake, 31, has focused more on films and business ventures ranging from restaurants to a clothing line, and reviving social networking site Myspace, of which he is part owner. He remarked in a recent video that creating music involved "physical torture" for him.
"Suit & Tie," the first single off his forthcoming album, fell short of sales expectations for its first week. The song, featuring rapper Jay-Z, sold 314,000 downloads last week. Industry experts had expected about 350,000 downloads.
Top menswear designer Tom Ford collaborated with Timberlake, designing suits worn in the "Suit & Tie" video as well as styling the production and the release's artwork.
Timberlake will perform his first concert in five years during a private Super Bowl-weekend event in New Orleans on February 2 at an invitation-only concert.
Timberlake posted on Twitter about the forthcoming game, saying among other things: "This is gonna be a GREAT Super Bowl!" and "Oh wait ... I don't have tickets. Dammit! Anybody know anybody?? LOL!"
