David Fincher will direct the video for Justin Timberlake‘s comeback single ‘Suit And Tie’, according to reports.
Hollywood filmmaker Fincher, who previously worked with Timberlake on The Social Network, will oversee the promo clip for the singer’s latest video, says Playlist. It will be the first music video that Fincher, whose other films include Fight Club and the US version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, has directed since Nine Inch Nail’s ‘Only’ in 2005.
Timberlake unveiled ‘Suit And Tie’ earlier this month (January 14). The song, which you can listen to at the bottom of the page and was his first new music since his second solo effort ‘FutureSex/LoveSounds’ in 2006, is the first taster from his forthcoming third studio album ‘The 20/20 Experience’.
The LP is set for release on March 19. Additional details, including album artwork and a tracklisting are still forthcoming, but Timberlake is said to have recorded at least 20 new tracks with Timbaland, who serves as the album’s producer.
Speaking about the new material, he said: “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.”
Yesterday (February 1), meanwhile, it was revealed that Timberlake is set to perform at the BRIT Awards at the O2 Arena on February 20.
