A brand-new Missy Elliott track has surfaced online as part of Timbaland Thursdays, a new series of free tracks in the mold of Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Fridays initiative. The song can be found on Timbaland's official site (also listen below).

"Take Ur Clothes Off," a throwback to Missy and Timbaland's classic collaborations from the late '90s and early '00s, is the first track Elliott has released as a headliner since "Best, Best", a single from her long delayed album Block Party, came out in 2008. The rapper more recently appeared on Ciara's "Work" and Lisa "Left-Eye" Lopes' "Let's Just Do It," both released in 2009.

It is currently unknown whether "Take Ur Clothes Off" is a one-off track for Timbaland's download series or if it is intended to eventually turn up on a new Missy Elliott album. As of now, Block Party does not have a scheduled release date.
