In a letter posted on his website, Timberlake wrote: "This year is an exciting one for me. 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."

"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," he added.

Promising further material, Timberlake continued: "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. 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."

Timberlake co-wrote and co-produced 'Suit and Tie' with Timbaland, who produced much of the Grammy-winning 'FutureSex/LoveSounds'.

The buzz around the pop star's return to music kicked off when he posted a video on his website that showed him walking into a studio, putting on headphones and saying: "I'm ready."

In the years since his last album, Timberlake's focus has been on acting, while many fans have really just been longing for another dancefloor-filler from the singer.

He was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild award for his role in 'The Social Network', and also starred in 'Friends with Benefits' and 'In Time'.

However, the former *N Sync star's biggest triumphs are musical. Both of his albums, 'Justified' and 'FutureSex/LoveSounds', topped the charts in the UK, garnering three Brit awards and selling more than 20m copies worldwide.
