Justin Timberlake is back with new music!

The singer, 42, teased his upcoming single “Selfish," which marks his first new music as a solo artist in six years following the release of his 2018 album Man in the Woods, on Instagram Friday.

Timberlake shared a snippet of the mid-tempo ballad in a video, which included clips from rehearsals of his intimate gig at The Orpheum in Memphis, Tennessee, where he played an intimate show on Friday evening.

In the post, which he captioned “ONE NIGHT ONLY,” Timberlake stood onstage before the show. The singer also walked through the empty auditorium as he watched his band set up onstage before fans arrived.

Another clip showed Timberlake holding a hat that read, “What’s better than having everything that you dreamed of?”

Timberlake previously shared a video teaser earlier on Friday for “EVERYTHING I THOUGHT IT WAS,” which is suspected to be his forthcoming album.

“Justin Timberlake Presents: “EVERYTHING I THOUGHT IT WAS” Preface by Benicio Del Toro,” Timberlake wrote in his caption. In the clip, which was filmed in mock movie trailer-style, Del Toro, 56, provides a hilarious voiceover as he describes what is shown in the teaser.

“What do we have here?” the actor — who appeared with Timberlake in the 2023 Netflix film Reptile — says at the beginning of the clip, as a model car then appears in the shot.

“Oh, that’s a nice car — wait, it’s a model. Did that say, ‘JT?’ ” Del Toro asks, before a shot of a sunset then appears. “OK, that sunset is definitely not real," he adds.

The camera then pans out to show Timberlake standing with his back turned. “Oh, there is Justin,” Del Toro says. “Why won’t he turn around? What the f--- is he staring at?” he adds as the clip abruptly ends with horror-style music.
