Last year, former 'N Sync member Lance Bass got back into a recording studio for the first time in over a decade. On the red carpet at the Billboard Music Awards, he spoke to us about what he has in the works.

"We're now calling that the teaser," Bass says, speaking about a new song called "Walking on Air" he shared in January of this year. The track was produced by Anise K and features guest spots from Snoop Dogg and up-and-coming singer Bella Blue.

"It was out for 6 days and then we had to bring it back for producing problems," Bass explains.

When a final version drops, Bass plans to use it to gauge fan interest in his new direction. He has no concrete plans for an album and is looking to future singles to help plot his course.


"I don't know what the album is going to sound like," he says. "I'm just going to go single-to-single until I figure out what that sound is going to be. Let me get 'Walking on Air' out there and if they love it, I'll know that's the sound they wanted to hear from me."

Bass also spoke about his stop on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" last week. Lance played the part of the TV-famous living room ornament Big Mouth Billy Bass and sung Al Green's "Take Me to the River" in a sketch that went viral.

"As an artist, it's just fun to go on the show and do silly skits like the one we did," Bass says. "It's way better than just interviewing us and doing the same boring questions over and over again."
