It’s really happening, and so quickly too! Months after rumors emerged of a sequel to Justin Timberlake’s comeback album The 20/20 Experience, and days after JT hinted at an upcoming release, we get to hear “Take Back the Night,” the first official single from The 20/20 Experience (2 of 2), straight from the artist’s mouth—er, YouTube account. After a summer of being jerked around by one of Timberlake’s peers, it’s an odd sensation to be expecting a song and then have it actually come out.

For those of you who didn’t love the first album as much as you might have liked, “Take Back the Night” is a welcome corrective; it sounds more like JT’s early work than anything on The 20/20 Experience, with a Quincy-Jones style disco beat and some groovy Latin horns. And there’s another reason to be happy: This song’s only six minutes long!
