JT picks mid-tempo love song, unveils sexy cover art.
Justin Timberlake has honed in on "Tunnel Vision" as the third single off his The 20/20 Experience album. Clocking in at just under seven minutes, Timberlake expects a big commitment from listeners, but the sugary lyrics laid over a mid-tempo Timbaland beat makes it an easy earful.
The single announcement comes just as JT unveiled the steamy cover art, showing the newlywed's face superimposed inside a woman's nude silhouette.
So far, everything off Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience has been a success. The album nearly went platinum in a week (968,000 in first week sales) and delivered singles "Suit & Tie" and "Mirrors," both of which peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100.
After taking a six-year break in between releases, the Grammy winner is more than making up for lost time. He and Jay-Z will co-headline London's Wirless Festival and embark on the Legends of the Summer tour this July. "We're both on this thing where we're not into a lot of tricks," the 32-year-old told Myspace. "We just want to come play and fry everybody's face off with the songs and everybody have a great time. Almost festival style."
By the fall another JT album will be out, followed by a solo tour run kicking off in October.
"Tunnel Vision" is set to drop July 15.
