After asking fans via Instagram, "Should I release a new single today?", Justin Timberlake decided the answer was "yes." Hence, he unleashed "TKO" from The 20/20 Experience - 2 of 2. The song is a darker, rhythmic track produced by Timbaland, and it can be heard on Timberlake's website. This latest single comes in advance of the September 30 release date of the new album. It's likely that fans will hear a live rendition of the song when Timberlake plays the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas this weekend.
"It's gonna be fun to play this year. I have not put the set list together yet because, as you know, I procrastinate on things like that. We're looking at playing some new material from the second half of this record," the singer told RyanSeacrest on his radio show on Thursday. JT will be rocking the two-day festival along with Paul McCartney, Katy Perry, J. Cole, Elton John, Muse, TiŽsto, Chris Brown, Keith Urban, fun., Miguel, Bruno Mars, Phoenix, Zedd, Maroon 5, Tim McGraw, Ke$ha, Drake, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Benny Benassi, Queen + Adam Lambert, a special guest appearance by Robin Thicke and this year's Macy's iHeartRadio Rising Star winner, The Summer Set, plus other surprise collaborations.
A few days after his iHeartRadioset, JT will head to Los Angeles to do a live performance and interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live on September 24. He is also on an award hot streak, as he's up for five trophies at 2013 MTV European Music Awards and five honors at the 2013 Soul Train Awards. Both award shows will take place in November.
