(CBS News) Justin Timberlake will appear in his first concert in more than four years the night before the Super Bowl.

Timberlake has signed on to perform during "DIRECTV Super Saturday Night," held Feb. 2 in New Orleans.

The 31-year-old recently released a new single, "Suit and Tie," featuring Jay-Z, and announced that his new album, "The 20/20 Experience," will arrive later this year.

The invitation-only concert also features Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson of The Roots as DJ and will benefit the Shriners Hospitals for Children. It is co-hosted by Mark Cuban's AXS-TV.

The show will be held after DIRECTV's "Celebrity Beach Bowl," which features a performance by Pitbull. The roster for that event also includes Snoop Dogg, Chace Crawford of "Gossip Girl" and Olympian Lolo Jones, according to Billboard.

Super Bowl XLVII will air Feb. 3 on CBS.
