Bands seeking a record deal should prepare to send their CDs forthwith to Justin Timberlake. He has become the latest pop star to take on the mantle of record executive, as he becomes chairman and chief executive officer of Tennman, a new Interscope-funded imprint.

“We are all excited about the talent we have to offer already on our roster and I cannot wait to introduce the world to my new discoveries,” gushed Timberlake.
