‘N Sync Ready To “String” Fans Along With New Album, Home Video

The guys of ‘N Sync have been on the road for most of the summer, yet Justin, J.C., Joey, Chris, and Lance have also been hard at work on their next album, “No Strings Attached,” which is due out on November 16.

‘N Sync even squeezed in some studio time over the weekend with producer Max Martin (of Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears fame) while the group was in the New York area for shows on Long Island and in New Jersey.

The guys have been sweating out a demanding road and recording schedule, but when MTV jumped aboard their tour bus for its “All Access” special, we found that their downtime wasn’t necessarily spent in a productive way. Case in point: this footage of the guys indulging in (among other things) some tour-bus booty-shaking and even a Black Sabbath sing-along, captured right here in [RealVideo] .

‘N Sync is also readying a home video previewing its next album, complete with studio footage, which is due in stores on
September 28.

The group’s next single will be “Music of My Heart,” featuring Gloria Estefan (see “‘N Sync Expands Horizons With Alabama, Gloria Estefan” ). The video was directed by Nigel Dick, who also helmed the clips for Britney Spears’ “Baby One More Time” and Ricky Martin’s upcoming “She’s All I Ever Had.”

While you won’t see ‘N Sync on Ozzfest, you can catch them backstage and on the road when “All Access: ‘N Sync” airs on Tuesday afternoon at 4:30 (ET), right after “Total Request Live.”
