The group officially doesn’t have a name yet, but the Popstars 2 group’s first single is available for download at Netscape.com starting today. At the same place where you can watch the entire O-Town DVD in streaming video, download a copy of “I Really Don’t Think So.” The file is free, but it’s in “protected” WMA format.
+ update: A reader in Mass. noticed that the file name for the song includes “Scene 23.” Could this be the as-yet-unveiled name of the new group? Judging by this list of upcoming CD releases in Canada, which includes “Scene 23″ as the artists name for the forthcoming Popstars 2 album, “Scene 23″ is probably their name.
