Fans of boy bands (or ex-boy band members) have reason to celebrate, as New Kids on the Block and Justin Timberlake (formerly of ‘NSync for those who have spent the last 15 years under a rock) have both revealed album art and tracklistings for their new albums.

JT’s The 20/20 Experience appears to be a rather short affair, at only 10 songs. However, I’d rather have a 10 track album with 10 good songs than have a 16-track album with 7 good songs, know what I mean? It’s interesting to note that the only guest artist featured on the album is Jay-Z. This is not a complaint. Music has become too “featuring” heavy over the past decade, and I respect Justin (and Timbaland) for being confident enough to put an album out that will pretty much stand or fall on its’ own merits. Not like you can tell much from the song titles, but I’m interested to hear what JT comes up with-especially since I’m on the record as being one of the few folks that actually digs “Suit & Tie.” The new album will be released on March 19th. Here’s the track listing:

Pusher Love Girl
Suit & Tie (featuring Jay-Z)
Don’t Hold the Wall
Strawberry Bubblegum
Tunnel Vision
Spaceship Coupe
That Girl
Let the Groove Get In
Mirrors
Blue Ocean Roar

Meanwhile, NKOTB continues their comeback with 10, an album title that’s a bit of a head-scratcher, as it’s only their seventh studio album (following their 1986 debut, Hangin’ Tough, Merry Merry Christmas, Step by Step, Face the Music and The Block.) Their album is also stunningly devoid of guest artists-interesting, considering The Block boasted an all-star cast including The Pussycat Dolls, Ne-Yo, Akon, Lady GaGa and New Edition. 10 will be released on April 2nd. We’ve already shared our thoughts on the new single “(I Like The) Remix.” Here’s the track listing:

We Own Tonight
Remix (I Like The)
Take My Breath Away
Wasted On You
Fighting Gravity
Miss You More
The Whisper
Jealous (Blue)
Crash
Back To Life
Now Or Never’
Survive You
