So, Sony went ahead and released a new N'Sync album yesterday and the band apparently had no idea.

But sorry fans, the guys are not back together.

"Essential *NSYNC" features some classic hits, along with past rare music that fans might not know and is already tearing up the iTunes charts at No. 6 and selling like hotcakes on Amazon.

Former band members Chris Kirkpatrick, Joey Fatone, Lance Bass and JC Chasez all took to social media to comment on the success of the surprise album.

"It's great to release some of the songs that had never made a record before! I'm glad our long time fans get some new music!" Kirkpatrick tweeted.

Chasez added, "I had the strangest dream last night that some old friends and I had a top 10 record on iTunes. Crazy right...#shocked #humbled #thankful."

Finally, Bass wrote, "Guess the label didn't expect all our amazing fans to still be there for us! I hate my favorite When You Wish upon A Star got left off. This cd set really showcases the vocals which I really like."
