If there are any Justin Timberlake fans out there, iTunes has an Easter egg for you: until the launch of his new album, you can listen to it for free on iTunes.

The 20/20 Experience is the pop singer's first album since 2006's FutureSex/LoveSounds. Since 2007, he has been concentrating on his acting career — but purchasing MySpace in 2011 inspired him to get his music career up and running once again.

The new album consists of 12 tracks, none less than four and a half minutes long, and some more than eight minutes. This helps produce a sense of maturity, according to The NY Daily News, whose Jim Farber said of the album:

"The assurance shows best in his vocals, which here achieve a balletic grace. He Fred Astaires his way through these tracks, dancing over their melody with the air of an acrobat. It all serves the persona he has adopted and, by now, perfected — a lover able to balance a boyish eagerness with a manly talent."

Billboard called it "One of the year's most anticipated pop releases is also one of the genre's weirdest — and most fully realised — efforts in ages."

The 20/20 Experience hits shelves on Friday, 15 March in Australia for AU$19.99; it will arrive on 18 March in Europe and 19 March in the US.

Until then, you can listen to it for free on iTunes here.
