Justin Timberlake will play his first concert in four years the night before the Super Bowl, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The singer will perform his new single, "Suit & Tie," as part of "DirecTV Super Saturday Night," to be held February 2nd in New Orleans. 

The invitation-only event, a benefit concert for Shriners Hospital for Children, will also feature DJ sets from Questlove before and after Timberlake's performance. The concert will take place at DTV SuperFan Stadium in New Orleans.

Justin Timberlake Through the Years

Timberlake debuted "Suit & Tie" on the new Myspace earlier this month, and this morning released a lyric video for the song, from the singer's upcoming album The 20/20 Experience, which is due March 19th. The clip flashes lyrics on the screen while Timberlake makes himself correct in an array of well-tailored finer, sits at a piano and puffs on an enormous cigar during Jay-Z's guest verse.

The album will be Timberlake's first since FutureSex/LoveSounds in 2006. Since then, he's kept busy with acting roles in movies including The Social Network, Friends With Benefits and last year's Trouble With the Curve.

Song Stories

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
