Back­street Boys re­lease new mu­sic

The Expositor (Brantford) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

The Back­street Boys have de­lighted fans with the re­lease of their first mu­si­cal of­fer­ing in five years.

The group; Nick Carter, 38, Kevin Richard­son, 46, Howie Dor­ough, 44, Brian Lit­trell, 43, and AJ McLean, 40, who en­joyed a string of hits in the ’90s, dropped new track Don’t Go Break­ing My Heart, in the early hours of Thurs­day, their first re­lease through a new deal with RCA Records.

The group, which this year cel­e­brates its 25th an­niver­sary, last re­leased a stu­dio al­bum, In World Like This, in 2013.

Don’t Go Break­ing My Heart is pro­duced by Jamie Hart­man and Stu­art Crich­ton and ac­com­pa­nied by a mu­sic video di­rected by long­time Back­street Boys col­lab­o­ra­tors Rich + Tone, which sees the man-band per­form their sig­na­ture group dance rou­tine to the elec­tropop tune on­stage against a chang­ing back­drop of lights and graphic images.

“The minute we heard this song we knew it was spe­cial,” Richard­son told Bill­board in a state­ment. “I geeked out over the pi­ano and synths. When that groove drops on the sec­ond verse, COME ON. Great verse, hook and melodies. Just makes you wanna lis­ten over and over again.”

Its re­lease comes as the band plan to hit the road for a string of sum­mer dates, in­clud­ing the Good Morn­ing Amer­ica Sum­mer Con­cert Se­ries in New York’s Cen­tral Park on 13 July, be­fore re­sum­ing their Back­street Boys: Larger Than Life res­i­dency in Las Ve­gas.

The Back­street Boys were cre­ated in 1993, and shot to fame with mega-hits in­clud­ing; Every­body (Back­street’s Back) and I Want It That Way. They’ve sold over 100 mil­lion records world­wide.
