The Backstreet Boys are back, all five of them! Today, A.J. McLean, Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson, Howie Dorough, and Brian Littrell appeared live on Good Morning America (GMA) to announce that they’re recording a new album.
“It’s our first time in the studio together, all five of us, since 2005,” Dorough said. “We’re recording our brand new record right here in London.”
The beloved boy band also revealed that they’ll be performing at a GMA concert on August 31. It will be the first time in six years all five members have performed together.
The talented quintet rose to fame in the late nineties after releasing their first album, Backstreet Boys, in 1996. The group sold over 130 million albums worldwide and won the hearts of countless young girls. The Backstreet Boys dissolved in 2006 after Richardson left to pursue other projects. Last year, McLean, Carter, Dorough, and Littrell toured with another boy band sensation, New Kids on the Block.
The new album is due to hit stores sometime next spring, just in time for the band’s 20th anniversary (20 years! How is that possible?). Martin Terefe will produce.
In April 2010, StarCam’s Jen Tapiero chatted with A.J. McLean about his wedding, Backstreet Boy tour plans, pre-show warm up routines, and more. Check it out!
