Justin Timberlake and David Fincher to collaborate again

The music video for Justin Timberlake's comeback single 'Suit & Tie' (featuring Jay-Z) is directed by David Fincher, the creator of films such as 'Seven', 'Fight Club' and 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo', according to 'Playlist'.

The two had previously collaborated on the 2010 Best Picture nominee 'The Social Network', in which Timberlake played Sean Parker. Timberlake who is to perform at the 2013 Grammys after a four-year hiatus, will be wearing a Tom Ford suit in the video.

Last year,  Timberlake wore a Tom Ford tuxedo to his surprise wedding to actress and longtime girlfriend Jessica Biel.

The video has a moody, ultra-cool Sinatra-esque vibe, with Justin getting  groomed and dressed, driving in his car and smoking while sitting at a piano. Meanwhile Jay-Z (singing on the track) mentions Ford, designer Alexander Wang and the All Saints boutique.

A lyric video for 'Suit & Tie' was released last week, and the March 19th release date of Timberlake's third studio album, 'The 20/20 Experience', was revealed in the clip.

The singer announced last  Friday that he will be performing at the Palladium in Los Angeles that night as his first full-length solo show in years.  

Before he became an Oscar-nominated director, Fincher honed his skills as a music video director, creating classic clips for artists like Madonna, Billy Idol, Aerosmith and George Michael. He has not directed a music video since Nine Inch Nails' 'Only' in 2005; Trent Reznor, the leader of Nine Inch Nails, co-created the score to 'The Social Network' for Fincher.

Fincher has also directed  the first two episodes of the political drama  'House Of Cards' for Netflix and is executive-producing the rest of the series.
