Redesigned MySpace Quietly Launches, Justin Timberlake Front and Center

Justin Timberlake's new single headlines MySpace's relaunch.

Have you been missing MySpace ? Neither have we, but in case you're curious what the social networking site has been up to, just head over to the homepage and check out the redesign. With celebrity backing from Justin Timberlake, who's mug stares right at you on the homepage, MySpace is offering the artist's new single "Suit & Tie" featuring Jay-Z free to people who sign in to the new site.

It's an appropriate marriage of entertainment, considering Timberlake hasn't released a single in six years, back when MySpace was still a relevant player in the social networking space. Facebook skipped ahead of MySpace in unique U.S. visitors in 2009 and has never looked back.

Following several months of beta testing, the new look MySpace is now available for all to see. It's heavily music oriented. Once you sign in (which you can do with your Facebook, Twitter, or Classic MySpace credentials), you'll see an embedded music player running across the bottom of the page. The new MySpace is all about discovering new music and artists rather than trying to compete with Facebook.

If you're so inclined, give it a glance and let us know what you think.
