Fans of Justin Timberlake's "20/20 Experience" may only have to wait until Sept. 30 for a second full-length "20/20" album to arrive; today Timberlake tweeted a photo of himself in the studio with a handwritten caption on the mixing board that said, "The 20/20 Experience (2 of 2) Sept. 30th."

 

 

This potential second J.T. album of 2013 looks like it will follow just months after his hugely successful first "20/20 Experience," which came out in March and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, selling a whopping 968,000 copies in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It has since remained in the top three.

"20/20" Part 2 was previously hinted to have a November release by The Roots' Questlove, who DJ'd a pair of Timberlake shows this winter. Questlove posted a "spoiler alert" to a forum on Okayplayer.com saying "10 songs now….. 10 songs later = 20 vision," apparently referencing the number of songs on the first album.

Producer Jerome "J-Roc" Harmon, who worked on all of the first "The 20/20 Experience," recently told Billboard the second 2013 Timberlake album will mix unreleased material from the first "20/20" album with brand new studio sessions.

"Before we came to the 10 [songs on "The 20/20 Experience"] that he wanted and the two bonus tracks, we had over 30, 40 tracks," Harmon said in April. "So I think he's going to go in, and we're going to take some of the stuff that we've already done, and of course create more music at the same time."
