After a pause that lasted two decades, the iconic band *NSYNC is set to grace the music scene once again, debuting their brand-new track “Better Place” as part of the animated film "Trolls Band Together" soundtrack. Fans have a lot to look forward to as this marks the band’s first musical release since their 2002 hit “Girlfriend,” featuring Nelly.
Set to the backdrop of the enthralling animated adventure, the song is also spotlighted in the latest trailer for the movie, accompanied by a brief snippet of the perennial favorite “I Want You Back.” The narrative of the film intricately weaves in Justin Timberlake's character, Branch, embarking on a mission with his estranged brother to save another sibling and breathe new life into their familial boy band, named BroZone.
Curiosity peaked and excitement unbolted, it’s now clear what *NSYNC’s Chris Kirkpatrick meant when he commented on Joey Fatone’s Instagram post, saying, “We’re so excited to see you excited!” It appears that the phrase directly echoes the lyrics of the upcoming release where the lines go, “I’m so excited/to see you excited.”
Adding to the anticipation is the availability of a more extended snippet of the track on TikTok, giving eager fans a preliminary taste of what's to come. Moreover, enthusiasts can pre-save the song right away, gearing up for its official release on September 29.
The movie, which unites a stellar voice cast including Anna Kendrick, Camila Cabello, RuPaul, and many others, is slated for a grand theatrical release on November 17, promising to not only be a visual delight but a musical feast featuring the grand return of *NSYNC.
Mark your calendars and get ready to be transported to a “Better Place” with *NSYNC’s heartfelt reunion and musical renaissance, promising a blend of nostalgia and fresh rhythms that are set to captivate hearts once more.
