After keeping fans waiting years for a new album, Justin Timberlake could return in mere months with the follow-up. Roots drummer Questlove said in an Okayplayer chat board posting over the weekend that Timberlake would release a second volume of The 20/20 Experience later this year, writing, "spoiler alert. 20/20 Vol 2 comes out in nov. (10 songs now . . . 10 songs later= 20 vision)."

SXSW 2013: Justin Timberlake Brings Hard-Rock Energy to His Austin Set

Questlove would be in a position to know: he spent last week with Timberlake on the set of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, and performed a DJ set before Timberlake performed Saturday night at SXSW in Austin. "He played me songs out of order and off both records so i don't know what made the final cut," Questlove said in the web post.

The 20/20 Experience, which comes out this week, is Timberlake's first release since FutureSex/LoveSounds in 2006. He's spent much of the past few weeks promoting the album, performing in New Orleans during Super Bowl weekend and hosting Saturday Night Live for the fifth time, in addition to appearing for a full week on Fallon and performing at SXSW.

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
