Justin Timberlake Premieres New Single, ‘Take Back The Night’

Though he just released his 'Tunnel Vision' vid, Timberlake's back again, with 'Take Back The Night.'

Justin Timberlake just got pulses pounding (and censors howling) with his “Tunnel Vision” video , but he’s already on to the next one: launching a brand-new single called “Take Back The Night” and a pre-order for the second installment of The 20/20 Experience.

Earlier in the week, JT teased that “Take Back” would be coming soon, and he proved to be a man of his word … because on Friday, he unveiled the full track, a sumptuous slice of Off The Wall-indebted disco that seems custom-made for roller rinks everywhere (or at least the five that are still open for business in 2013).

Over stirring strings and percolating percussion, JT attempts to woo a would-be lover — “Girl, this was your city/You did it all and more/Broke every law except for one, babe: attraction,” he coos. “Are you ready?” He gets a little more direct in the chorus, begging the object of his affections to join him on the dance floor (“Your love’s a weapon/Give your body some direction/that’s my aim/And we can take back the night.”) And, like the majority of songs on the first 20/20 Experience, this one’s a long-player too, stretching to nearly six minutes, and featuring plenty of staccato-ed guitars and blasts of horns on the extended outro, each of which is announced by Timberlake himself: “And the horns say!”

“Take Back The Night” is currently playing on Timberlake’s official site (workplace productivity always dips on Friday anyway), and while you’re there, you can also pre-order The 20/20 Experience, Part 2 of 2. Any pre-orders also come with an automatic download of “Night.”

Timberlake’s second 20/20 album is due on September 30 , and a month later, he’ll launch off a North American tour in support of both discs. The trek kicks off on October 31 in Montreal and runs until February. Next week, JT will head out with Jay-Z on the “Legends of the Summer” tour, which hits iconic stadiums like Yankee Stadium and Fenway Park.
