"On Sept 30th, the second half of The 20/20 Experience, The 20/20 Experience 2 of 2, comes out.

I can't wait for all of you to hear The 20/20 Experience in full," JT wrote in the open letter. "Below is a short clip of the recording of the experience so you can get a feel of what those 20 days were like. It was like no other time I've ever had in the studio."
