After taking his time to release the follow-up to his now-classic FutureSex/LoveSounds (2007), JT is readying his second studio release within eight months of each other. The 20/20 Experience Pt. 2 looks to be as in debt to classic soul as the first installment, if lead single “Take Back The Night” is any indication. Timberlake reminds us he’s the most dynamic male pop star since MJ with an Off The Wall throwback production and his trademark falsetto.
The song further pushes the former NSYNC member from the electronica-infused pop he helped usher into the pop music landscape with his 2007 release, re-imagining him as a timeless blue-eyed soul singer.
The second installment in Justin Timberlake’s 2013 The 20/20 Experience series will be released on 30 September.
