Justin Timberlake to release new single on Friday

Justin Timberlake is set to release his new single 'Can't Stop The Feeling' on Friday (06.05.16).

The 'Sexy Back' hitmaker has revealed to his 54 million Twitter followers he has been secretly working on new music and will drop his first fresh musical offering in three years in two days' time.

He tweeted: "CantStopTheFeeling 2 more days (sic)"

The 35-year-old pop star impressively kept the news of his fresh track tightly under wraps, until now, and managed to avoid any leaks of the song online.

However, Justin's record company have been distributing the track to radio stations ahead of its release on Friday and their presenters have been getting in touch with the star to share their praise and excitement over the incredible "hooks".

KISS FM's 'On Air with Ryan Seacrest' wrote on Twitter: "I just heard the new @jtimberlake song!!! OMG! SMASH!!! (sic)"

While Justin retweeted a message from radio host Michael Bennett, who wrote: "This @jtimberlake is one of the best records I've heard this year. Can't wait to play it for u on Fri on @965ampradio #CantStopTheFeeling (sic)"

And music producer Scott Venner declared: "HOOK AFTER HOOK AFTER HOOK (sic)"

Justin recently teased fans that he was spending time in the studio with long-time collaborators Timbaland and Pharrell Williams as well as country group Little Big Town.

And although the former NSYNC star - who has 13-month-old son Silas with his wife, actress Jessica Biel - released the song 'Drink You Away' in November, it was taken from his 2013 album, 'The 20/20 Experience', which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart.

In 2014, the 'Cry Me A River' singer released 'Not a Bad Thing' from the album, which reached Billboard's top 10, and appeared on Michael Jackson's second posthumous record 'Xscape' that same year.
