Justin Timberlake to release new single 12:01 a.m. Monday
Seven years after his last album, Justin Timberlake is returning to his musical roots with the release of a new single.
The single’s title, set for release at 12:01 a.m. on Monday, is a well-guarded secret. In fact, the song only came to light when Timberlake tweeted “I’m ready” on Thursday. His website features a digital countdown to the moment of the song’s release.
Astral’s 99.9 Virgin Radio has announced it plans to premiere the video at that time and play it continuously for six hours.
Jay (Mad Dog) Michaels, of Virgin Radio’s Breakfast Show with Mad Dog and Maura, has described the song as “the most anticipated single of 2013.
“Two days before it drops, we still don’t know the song title. It’s an exciting mystery that will unfold live,” Michaels said in a press statement.
Timberlake, 31, has focused on establishing himself as a bona fide actor since he took a hiatus from music, including roles in such films as The Social Network, Bad Teacher, Friends With Benefits.
