Justin Timberlake confirms second album for later this year

Justin Timberlake is set to serve up a double treat for fans by unveiling a sequel to his new album The 20/20 Experience later this year (13).

The SexyBack hitmaker confirmed the follow-up news during his album release party at Los Angeles' El Rey Theater on Monday night (18Mar13).


Timberlake addressed speculation his new album is only the first half of a planned project, simply stating, "Those rumors are true," but he declined to give a specific release date.


The announcement comes shortly after acclaimed producer and drummer ?uestlove revealed Timberlake had more material to deliver to fans.


In a post on his website Okayplayer.com, The Roots star wrote, "Spoiler alert. 20/20 Vol 2 comes out in Nov (November). (10 songs now... 10 songs later = 20 vision)... He played me songs out of order and off both records so I (sic) don't know what made the final cut".


Timberlake turned the release party into a TV special for CW network, which will air on Tuesday night (19Mar13) - the same day the disc hits retailers.
