Editor's note: Justin Timberlake posted a tweet at 12:01 Eastern time on Jan. 10, with a link to a countdown clock on his website. The link counts down to midnight on Sunday, Jan. 13. He also released a video titled, "I'm Ready," which ends with the artist entering a recording studio and then a sound booth, placing headphones on and uttering the title of the video.

Justin Timberlake fans could be in for a very exciting, surprising treat today. The former 'N Sync member posted a mysterious tweet at midnight, with a date and time (Jan. 10 at noon Eastern), perhaps revealing the release date for a new single? Or a new album?

The Tennessee native who married Jessica Biel in October has been quietly working on the project with good friend and long-time collaborator Timbaland, according to Billboard. The magazine confirmed with a source that Timberlake will be "releasing a new album more sooner than later." Fans can expect as many as 20 tracks.

The "SexyBack" singer took a step back from the music scene after the release of his quadruple-platinum album, "FutureSex/LoveSounds" and has spent the past several years gaining acting cred with projects like 2012's "Trouble With the Curve," and several appearances on NBC's "Saturday Night Live."

Are you a fan of surprises? Will you buy the new album? Take a second to watch the video for "SexyBack" and then let us know in the comments!
