'NSYNC To Release Celebrity On June 26

Fourth album said to feature electronica, hard R&B, even country.

‘NSYNC have titled their fourth album after something they know a lot about: Celebrity.

The follow-up to last year’s No Strings Attached – which sold a record-setting 2.4 million copies in its first week – is due June 26.

Jive Records hopes to have a first single out by the end of April, a spokesperson said. Though there’s no word on the title, it’s promised to be an uptempo track.

The group’s members recently said their new album will dip into such genres as electronica, hard R&B, “straight-up dance music” and even country. ‘NSYNC recorded material last month with production duo the Neptunes, who have worked with rappers Mystikal, Jay-Z and Ol’ Dirty Bastard, R&B diva Kelis and pop-rockers No Doubt.

‘NSYNC will kick off a summer tour on May 12 in Miami with television-born pop group Eden’s Crush in tow. On Friday, the guys attended the Los Angeles premiere of the concert film Bigger Than Live.
