Justin Timberlake releases new song 'Mirrors' - Listen

02/11/2013 by Kristina Lopez

Justin Timberlake has been keeping busy for the last 24 hours.

First the "Suit & Tie" singer lit up the Grammy Awards stage with a show stopping performance of the hit song with Jay-Z. After the ceremony, Timberlake jetted over to the Hollywood Palladium for a concert and to top it all off, on early Monday he debuted a new song from his upcoming album "The 20/20 Experience."

"Mirrors," which is available on iTunes and can be heard below, clocks in at eight minutes and six seconds. The song features producer Timbaland's signature beat boxing sounds that helped make "Cry Me A River" famous. It is the fourth song off "The 20/20 Experience" to debut publicly before the album's release on March 19.

The singer performed two other tracks from the album, "That Girl" and "Pusher Girl Love," during his performance at the DirecTV pre-Super Bowl concert.

"It was easy coming back to you/ Once I figured it out, you were right here all along," Timberlake sings. "It's like you're my mirror, my mirror staring back at me/ I couldn't get any bigger/ With anyone else beside of me."

It is unclear if the song is Timberlake's musical expression of his relationship with wife Jessica Biel. The two broke up briefly before they wed in October 2012.

Timberlake recently explained to Rolling Stone magazine why he took such a long hiatus from music. His last album was "FutureSex/LoveSounds" in 2006.

"I will not be the type of artist that puts out 10 to 15 albums. That's just not who I am. They're really special to me," he said. "I write music all the time, but until you really feel that desperate need to shout from the rooftops and express yourself in that way, I just kind of keep it to myself."
