Justin Timberlake, making his pop-music comeback with a new single and album, will perform at next month's Grammy Awards for the first time in four years, Grammy organizers said on Wednesday.

Timberlake, 31, will take the stage at the music industry's biggest night in Los Angeles on Feb. 10, ahead of the scheduled March release of his first album since 2006.

The 20/20 Experience marks Timberlake's return to music after several years in which he has focused more on acting and business ventures, including a clothing line and a partnership in social networking site MySpace.
