JT is sounding like MJ once again on his new single, "Take Back the Night," which premiered Friday.

Justin Timberlake's new jam, with its funky guitar strums and disco trumpet blares, has a throwback sound that many fans and critics say is reminiscent of Michael Jackson's Off the Wall era — a comparison that Timberlake has certainly earned in the past.

"Take Back the Night" is the first single from the second volume of Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience, entitled The 20/20 Experience (2/2). That album is set to drop September 30 and will include 11 tracks, in addition to "a special surprise from Justin," as his camp describes.
