Whether we all realize it or not, Justin Timberlake‘s second The 20/20 Experience album is almost here—it drops Sept. 30. Yeah, I know, most folks weren’t head over heels for the Michael Jackson-heavy “Take Back The Night“, because maybe they were looking for something a little more JT and a little less anyone else. Well, they’re getting that on the latest leak, “TKO”, which is produced by and features Timbaland.
He and Timberlake have forged a strong musical bond over the past decade or so, especially on the latter’s fantastic Future Sex/Love Sounds. And while I wouldn’t exactly say that “TKO” sounds like it could fit on that album, it’s definitely closer to that beat-focused, more experimental approach that made FSLS so damn enjoyable. It’s also more than seven minutes long, because of course it is. Maybe they’ll edit this one for the radio, though.
You can stream “TKO” below and pre-order the album on Amazon.
