It's hard to belive that it was seven years ago when Justin Timberlake dropped FutureSex/LoveSounds, his chart topping sophomore album, but since then the pop star turned actor, lining up parts in a wide range of films from the B-movie sleze of "Black Snake Moan," to the comedies "Bad Teacher" and "Friends With Benefits," to the sci-fi "In Time" and the baseball drama "Trouble With The Curve." And while 2013 will see him appear in the Coen Brothers' "Inside Llewyn Davis," Timberlake is headed back to where he started, with a new album The 20/20 Experience dropping in the spring. And he's roped in the helmer who helped him achieve his finest performance to date, to lens the first video for the album.

It's hard to belive that it was seven years ago when Justin Timberlake dropped FutureSex/LoveSounds, his chart topping sophomore album, and since then the pop star has turned actor, lining up parts in a wide range of films from the B-movie sleaze of "Black Snake Moan," to the comedies "Bad Teacher" and "Friends With Benefits," to the sci-fi "In Time" and the baseball drama "Trouble With The Curve." While 2013 will see him appear in the Coen Brothers' "Inside Llewyn Davis," Timberlake is heading back to where he started, with a new album The 20/20 Experience dropping in the spring. And he's roped in the helmer who helped him achieve his finest performance to date to lens the first video for the album.

The Playlist can confirm that David Fincher is directing the video for "Suit & Tie," the first single for the album that also features Jay-Z. Production began last week on the spot, with Timberlake reteaming with his "The Social Network" director. As fans of Fincher know, he cut his teeth on commercials and music videos, but it has been seven years since he's done one, last helming "Only" for Nine Inch Nails. There's not much word on what this clip will involve but set photos reveal that, appropriately, everyone is looking quite dapper.

The 20/20 Experience will stores on March 19th and while Fincher ponders over a few options for his next feature, "House Of Cards" just dropped on Netflix in its entirety last night. The political drama has Fincher behind the camera for the first two episodes, and executive producing the rest of the series, and if you're not a football fan, this might be the perfect thing to settle in with this Super Bowl weekend.
