Justin Timberlake - "TKO"

Earlier this year, Justin Timberlake ended a six-year drought by releasing his new album The 20/20 Experience. It’s the year’s biggest-selling album to date, in any genre, and it’s also a very good album, full of elegant retro-soul flourishes and orchestral Timbaland production flourishes and tenderly heartfelt love-pleas. Timberlake’s got a second installment of The 20/20 Experience coming later this year, and first single “Take Back The Night” has been out there for a little while. This morning, he’s shared “TKO,” the follow-up. The seven minute track is a Timbaland production, full of the jittery production tricks that he brought to the game more than a decade ago, and it works as a midtempo club track that doesn’t have much of the old-school loverman slickness that Timberlake brought to the last album. On its own merits, though, the melody doesn’t quite stick the way you’d hope a Timberlake melody would. Maybe it’s a grower? Either way, you can listen to the track below.

The second volume of The 20/20 Experience is out 9/30 on RCA.
