Late Night with Justin Timberlake: "Suit & Tie" (Four Tet Remix) b/w "For These Times"

It looks like a Four Tet (Kieran Hebden) remix is most likely the closest Justin Timberlake's ever gonna get to Indie Rock super-stardom; Besides that time he played Bon Iver on "The Prince Show" alongside in-house SNL Beyoncé & Jay-Z impersonators. The former N'SYNC crooner seems to be focusing on music full force yet again, after a 6+ year-long absence from the music industry. Justin Timberlake hosted/performed on SNL this past Saturday (joining The 5-Timers Club) and he's guesting on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon all week, shows airing March 11-15th. In what appears to be another act of cleverly-planned promotional, Four Tet's label-sanctioned "Suit & Tie" remix was mysteriously leaked to The Internet late Sunday night, coincidentally followed up by a superior quality version the next day. UPDATE: It's been brought to my attention that The 20/20 Experience's complete 70-minute tracklist is now streaming on iTunes!

Kieran Hebden has somehow managed to morph Timberlake and Jay-Z's trademark voices into almost un-recognizable Funk-drenched vocal fragments. It's a clever Electronic track, which essentially twists Justin Timberlake's smooth come-ons into a hard-hitting House BANGER. While he has yet to unleash The 20/20 Experience (March 15-20th world-wide), Justin Timberlake's already hard @ work on his next project: a Cohen Brothers film score with Mumford & Sons frontman, Marcus Mumford, as well as T-Bone Burnett and The Punch Brothers! Four Tet, on the other hand, released yet another new track Monday morning, "For These Times," pulled from NonPlus' Think and Change label comp. New-found buddies Justin Timberlake & Jay-Z are headed out on a [baseball] stadium tour running from July 17-August 16th, which has been dubbed "Legends of The Summer."
