LISTEN: Lance Bass Releases First Song in 12 Years

Pop star Lance Bass has managed to keep making headlines since splitting from N’Sync in 2002. There was Dancing With the Stars, that whole “I’m going to the moon” thing and who could forget the original “I’m Gay” cover of People magazine? But we haven’t heard much from him musically — until now. E! reports that the former boy bander is releasing his first song in 12 years. Called “Walking On Air,” the club-y dance tune is a collaboration with three (three!) other musicians: Anise K, Bella Blue and (puff) Snoop Dog. Here’s what Bass had to say about it:

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. … 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.”

I don’t really like it. Sounds too much like everything else out there right now, with even an extra bit of cheesiness. You may feel differently, though. Give it a listen here. If you like it, it’ll be available on iTunes tomorrow.
