Justin Timberlake has unveiled the video for his track ‘Take Back The Night’.
The song is the first to be taken from Timberlake’s upcoming album ‘The 20/20 Experience – Part 2’, due out on September 30. It’s his follow-up to ‘The 20/20 Experience’, which was released in March.
The track previously got the singer into trouble with an anti-sexual violence charity of the same name. The non-profit Take Back The Night group’s executive director Katherine Koestner said her organisation was “really shocked” that the singer had used its name without permission.
Timberlake since responded to the comments in a statement, saying he only became aware of Take Back The Night and its work upon the release of his single. “Neither my song nor its lyrics have any association with the organisation,” Timberlake stated. “As I’ve learned more about the Take Back The Night foundation, I’m moved by its efforts to stop violence against women, create safe communities and encourage respectful relationships for women – something we all should rally around. It is my hope that this coincidence will bring more awareness to this cause.”
