This post is probably jinxing it (we're sorry! Sorrier than you can ever know), but Justin Timberlake is making some sort of mysterious announcement at noon Eastern. The word is that it's an actual song, from a full and nearly completed Timbaland-produced album, and — oh God — Beyoncé and Jay-Z might be involved?

Update: So, we half-spoiled it — the big reveal was a video of Justin Timberlake walking into a studio and a (sort of confusing) countdown clock. But he's ready to make new music, which we will apparently learn more about in three days. Maybe he might even play a snippet? Yeah, no, just jinxed that too.
