Justin Timberlake has unveiled his new track, titled 'Suit And Tie' – listen to it here.

The song, which features a guest verse from Jay-Z and was produced by Timbaland, is the first new music from the singer-turned actor and MySpace entrepreneur since his second solo effort 'FutureSex/LoveSounds' in 2006.

In an open letter to fans on his website, Timberlake also confirmed that he will release a new album later in 2013, titled 'The 20/20 Experience'.

"This year is an exciting one for me," he wrote. "As you probably have heard through the "grapevine," I'm gearing up for a big 2013. Back in June of last year, I quietly started working on what is now, my next journey with that thing I love called MUSIC."

He added: "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. What I came up with is something I couldn't be more excited about! It is full of inspiration that I grew up listening to and some newfound muses that I've discovered along the way."

He finished: "I'm calling it 'The 20/20 Experience' and it's coming out this year. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed making it."

Justin Timberlake confirmed his return to the music industry via a video online three days ago saying that he is "ready" – watch it below.

Timberlake is also working with Beyonce on the follow up to her 2011 album '4', she revealed in a recent interview.
