Lance Bass is back—to making music, that is!
For the first time in 12 years, the former ‘N Sync boy bander is set to release a new song.
Have a listen to the single , “Walking On Air,” which dropped today on iTunes. The tune is a collaboration between Bass, Anise K, Bella Blue and—get ready for it!—Snoop Dog.
“For the last two years I’ve been listening to demos, just trying to figure out if I want to get back in the studio,” Bass tells me. “I hadn’t heard anything that resonated with me. But a couple of months ago, a track from Anise K landed in my lap from a friend of mine and he was like, ‘I think this will be your first song.”
Describing the song as a “fun dance track,” Bass said, “These days songs have to be played in clubs and this is one of those songs that you’ll definitely hear in the club. I’m sure it will be remixed so many different times.”
Bass admits he’d love to get back to performing on stage. “But I have zero plans,” he said. “I’m going to release it and if people love it, hopefully it will climb the charts…I’m just going to play it by ear.” (Earlier versions were released last year in Australia as well as in Belgium with Belgian pop star Ian Thomas.)
Meanwhile, Bass was in Park City, Utah last week for Slamdance, where he premiered Kidnapped For Christ, a documentary he executive produced about an American-run school in the Dominican Republic that uses abusive behavior modification methods to try to change gay teens straight. “They’re trying to reform them—pray the gay away,” said Bass, who is engaged to artist Michael Turchin. “It’s total torture. The first time I saw the rough edit my jaw was on the floor.”
