Justin Timberlake has made quite the impact on the music world since his recent comeback and it's now been revealed that the singer is also set to become quite the TV star as well, with his new album set to become an hour long TV special.

Fans of the Suit & Tie singer will be treated to the TV special next Tuesday in the US (March 19), the same day as his album The 20/20 Experience airs and will be titled Target Presents The iHeartRadio Album Release Party With Justin Timberlake.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show will essentially be a taping of his album-release party, which will take place at Los Angeles' El Rey Theatre on Monday and will include a 30-minute radio special discussing the story behind the album and the eight- minute world premiere of JT's new music video, most likely for second single Mirrors.

The Cry Me A River singer recently gave fans the chance to hear his third studio album for free on iTunes a week before it was due to be released.

Justin will be releasing his LP on March 18 in the UK and a day later in the US, marking his return to music after a six-year hiatus.

The superstar tweeted: “Want to hear #The2020Experience early? The full album is now available to stream on @iTunesMusic: http://itunes.com/justintimberlake … -teamJT”

JT recently told Rolling Stone of the new LP: "We made it to listen from top to bottom. It's not so much a narrative or a story, but sonically we really made it to listen from top to bottom."

He continued, "My relationship with [Timbaland] is very unique; we share the same perspective that we always want to make something that reminds us of music that we love, but at the same time is something we've never heard before.

"I was just like, 'Let's make some music without all the hoopla of, like, expectations. Let's just make something that feels genuine from us'. And I'm glad we were able to do that way because, for me, it's the best stuff I've ever done."
