Collegiettes, our dreams have come true--*NSYNC has released a new album (Cue inner third-grade fan-girl screaming with excitement)! To be exact, though, Sony released a new album full of *NSYNC songs on Tuesday. In a strange turn of events, however, the band revealed that they were totally clueless that the album was being released at all.
The album, titled The Essential *NSYNC, features old hits, such as "Tearin' Up My Heart," as well as lesser-known songs that have never made it onto a record (until now!), like "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" and "Trashin' the Camp (with Phil Collins)." According to Entertainment Weekly, the album is selling insanely well on iTunes (considering *NSYNC fell out of style say, a decade ago) and is out-of-stock on Amazon.
As for the surprise for the band, Lance Bass tweeted:

Whether or not everyone's favorite boy band should have known that the album was dropping is neither here nor there; what's important to us collegiettes is that the music is here, right at our fingertips! Don't even bother trying to contact any friend of yours who counts herself as an *NSYNC fan; she'll be busy jamming out for the next week at least!
