JT made extra sure the song caught everyone's attention - it was released on a day that also saw brand new James Blake and Skepta albums launch - by littering the video with celebrity cameos.

We have the song, and it looks like we'll soon be getting an album from the legendary pop star, too. According to a report in Rolling Stone Timberlake told Carson Daly's radio show: "I don't know exactly when I'm going to put it out but yeah, I'm definitely working on a new album."

He also revealed in the same interview that the new material would be influenced by his musical upbringing in the US. "I think where I grew up in America has a lot of influence," he said. "Growing up in Tennessee — very central of the country — Memphis is known as the birthplace of rock and roll, but also the home of the blues, but Nashville's right down the street so there's a lot of country music."

The last Justin Timberlake album, 'The 20/20 Experience', was released in 2013 and featured singles 'Suit & Tie' as well as the brilliant 'Mirrors'.
