Traci Elizabeth Lords is ready to go on the record — literally. The Sci Fi Channel's unofficial poster girl is working on a follow-up to her 1995 techno platter, 1,000 Fires, she reveals to TV Guide Online. "I finally got out of my [exclusive deal with Radioactive, my old] label, so I'm a free agent now. I've got several record companies interested in putting this album out, but I'm not sure where I'm going with it yet."

No matter: What's important, at least to us Lords lovers, is that at last new tracks are in the offing. "Music is absolutely happening at the moment," says the former First Wave leading lady and star of the recent Deathlands: Homeward Bound telepic. "I'll release at least the single this summer."

Intrigued? So are we. Alas, the tight-lipped ex-Melrose Place and Profiler vixen refuses to name that tune! "I can't," she insists. "If I did, then I'd have to kill you." Blimey. Maybe just a hint, then? "It's a 20-year-old song that nobody has ever covered," she teases. "The video is great fun, too. It doesn't take itself terribly seriously."

Good Lords! Could the former blue-movie star have remade Cyndi Lauper's "She-Bop"? We can't wait to hear!
