‘CELEBRITY’ GOSSIP

Torch ballads, pop ditties and nosebleed techno - We're lying about one of these...

*NSYNC have revealed further details of their next album, ‘CELEBRITY’.

Speaking to Canadian journal Much Music, Lance Bass described ‘Gone’, the song said to have been written by Justin Timberlake, as “an incredible ballad”. However, the first single from the album is likely to be the livelier ‘Dirtypop’.

‘Celebrity’ is scheduled for release on July 26, and, according to Justin, the album will be a more eclectic affair than their last LP ‘No Strings Attached’. “We tapped into a lot of different flavours,” he explained. “Something keeps happening every time we put an album together. This vibe kinda kicks in. It’s so intense, but it’s a hell of a lot of fun.”

Meanwhile, the band are preparing for their ‘Popodyssey’ tour of North America, which starts in May. Some dates have been rescheduled following problems with promoters, and three dates in Georgia, North Carolina and Chicago have been cancelled.
