At his The 20/20 Experience album release party last night (Mar. 18) in L.A., Justin Timberlake confirmed that he is releasing a second don’t-call-it-a-comeback album. 

"I gotta clear a rumor up," Timberlake said to Ryan Seacrest, who attended the iHeartRadio and Target sponsored event. "This whole thing about this being the first half of the album is true."

The "rumor" spread from Questlove’s comment on his Okayplayer messageboard this past weekend.

Quest wrote, "spoiler alert. 20/20 Vol 2 comes out in nov. (10 songs now.....10 songs later= 20 vision) i admire the balls it took to make this record. cause he coulda easily urshurd his work in and made Diplo his Teddy Riley to 20/20's dangerous instead of sticking with timb’s Quincy. feel me?"

"Timb," referring to Timbaland, has been producing tracks for Timberlake since his debut as a solo artist, 2002’s Justified.

Prior to the "10 songs later" announcement, Timberlake spent the week with Questlove, taking on a nightly residency on the set of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and culminating with Questo joining him on stage during Timberlake’s headlining "MySpace Secret Show" SXSW performance.

The "SexyBack" singer did not necessarily confirm the November release date.

The 20/20 Experience, which released in stores today, is Timberlake’s first album in six years.
