    Justin Timberlake is gearing up for an encore.

    After confirming speculation in March that he was working on a sequel to his massive hit album "The 20/20 Experience," the crooner has now announced that his follow-up will be released on Sept. 30.

    And in typical JT style, the 32-year-old popster revealed the news in chicly nondescript fashion.

    The follow-up album isn't the only thing Jessica Biel's hubby is ramping up for: Timberlake also announced on his website that he'll be embarking on a world tour this fall. The North American leg will kick off on Oct. 31 in Montreal before winding its way through 21 other cities.

    The first installment of "The 20/20 Experience" marked an all-time career high for Timberlake, selling a staggering 968,000 copies its first week and becoming the fastest-selling album worldwide in iTunes history.

    Looks like Timberlake's 20/20 vision is serving him quite well these days.
