The 'Mirrors' singer will perform on every show from  March 11 to 15, where he will also be interviewed by the host, as he prepares for the release of his latest album 'The 20/20 Experience' on March 19.

Justin's stint on the NBC talk show will come just a few days after he hosts 'Saturday Night Live' on March 9.

The 'Suit & Tie' hitmaker will also perform on the comedy sketch show as he hosts for the fifth time in his career.

Justin recently claimed his six-year hiatus from recording to focus on his acting career has made him a better songwriter.

He explained: "I think doing films it gave me more confidence and insight.  In playing different characters I think it changed my songwriting a little bit where I felt like I cannot just play a character with a statement. Because 'SexyBack,' to me, is just a statement, I didn't see it as something for myself. 

"But now I feel like I can encapsulate a whole world for that character, not just a statement.

"Now I can really paint a picture for people.

"Music is for dreamers. You should be able to create another world that you can live in.

"I'm not gonna speak for Bob Dylan - he's one of my idols - but from my perspective as a fan, it seems to me that he started creating music that made him feel like another person and that's what it should do.

"[The studio] rally is one place that you can still go to that you can be completely free.

"You can lock yourself in a room and make a whole other world."
