*NSYNC, a popular boy band that rose to fame in the late 1990s, recently reunited for an appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards.

And for the first time in at least 20 years, Justin Timberlake, Joey Fatone, Lance Bass, Chris Kirkpatrick, and JC Chasez will be releasing a new song.

It's called "Better Place."

The new track was previewed on Wednesday in the official trailer for "Trolls Band Together." The movie features Timberlake reprising his role as a voice artist for the character Branch alongside Anna Kendrick, who voices Poppy.

"This trailer is all we ever wanted, all we ever needed," the Trolls' posted on Instagram. "Watch the new trailer for #TrollsBandTogether featuring 'Better Place' from @NSYNC. Experience it only in theaters November 17."

The trailer was also posted on YouTube.

The VMA's were held Tuesday night at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

The night's first presenters were NSYNC, who handed an award to Taylor Swift. The singer-songwriter won the best pop video award for her hit, "Anti-Hero."

In coordinating suits, NSYNC shared the stage with Swift. Bass handed her a friendship bracelet, just as fans do at the superstar’s shows.

“You’re pop personified,” she told the group.

She also figured the boy band had something up their sleeves.

"Are you doing something? What's gonna happen now?" Swift asked. "They're gonna do something, and I need to know what it is."

The group has not released a song since the remix of their hit, "Girlfriend," with rapper Nelly, which came out in 2002. They went on a hiatus soon after.

The new song drops September 29, according to reports.
