In May 2009, Ondrasik posted on his MySpace blog that the name of his forthcoming record will be taken from fan suggestions, and will be subsequently voted on to determine the winning album title.
The first single from the new album, called "Chances", was released on July 21, 2009, as a digital download. It also debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 at #83 and at #12 on the Billboard Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks chart on the week ending October 31, 2009. "Chances" can also be heard in the end credits of the 2009 film The Blind Side. It can also be heard in the first promotional commercial video of Idol Season 10.
Slice has sold approximately 30,000 during its stay on the Billboard 200.
On September 22, 2009, the music video for "Chances" was released on VH1.com. The music video shows the story of two teenagers falling in love, while Ondrasik narrates (sings) to the story. The video was directed by Steven Drypolcher (Beyoncé, Kanye West, Boys Like Girls) and produced by Partizan. The "Making of the Chances Music Video" is available on Amazon.com.
