At the Sonos Home Theater Lounge during the Sundance film festival, Billboard caught up with former 'N Sync member Lance Bass, who filled us in on his recent return to music.

"It's been almost 12 years since I've been in the studio with the 'N Sync boys," he says, citing his VMAs reunion with Justin Timberlake and company as his inspiration to get back in the studio. "After 'N Sync I needed a little creative break from music; I didn't know it would be this long."

Bass's new track "Walking on Air" is an upbeat dance song produced by Australia's Anise K, whom Bass believes will be "the next David Guetta." It also features guest spots from vocalist Bella Blue and none other than Snoop Dogg. The song hits iTunes tomorrow, but you can listen to it below:

Bass was at Sundance to promote the documentary "Kidnapped For Christ," which he executive produced. The film is a behind-the-scenes look at the highly controversial Escuela Caribe, an American-run Christian behavior modification program in the Dominican Republic. It follows the stories of American teenagers who were taken from their homes and shipped there.
