Backstreet Boys: From Boy Band to Man Band


Backstreet Boys

For twenty years, Backstreet Boys have delivered the finest pop music has to offer – tightly crafted songs, floor-shaking rhythms, and unmistakable harmonies. On the 30th July, all five original members – Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, AJ McLean and Kevin Richardson – will release their new album In A World Like This.

Continuing with their 20th Anniversary celebrations – which included a star on the legendary Hollywood Walk of Fame – the group will set out on a world-tour and release their first album since Kevin Richardson’s rejoining of the group. In A World Like This is an album that sees the guys revisiting the groundbreaking dance-pop sound that first made them international superstars. Songs like the Max Martin penned first single, “In A World Like This,” are reminiscent of classic BSB, bursting with big hooks, unforgettable melodies, and high-energy rhythms. The collection of tracks both highlights the group’s classic sound and vision while also having an air of modern freshness. From the first note to the last, In A World Like This impressively showcases the group’s preeminent pop mastery with a collection of indelible tracks that surely rank among their biggest and best hits.

“We always want to top our previous albums. That’s always our objective” says Carter. “All five of us were determined to create an album where every song could be a single.” Backstreet Boys did just that. In A World Like This captures unified voices making the most vital music imaginable, and five talented artists creating influential, unforgettable pop. “Our goal is always to push ourselves as much as possible,” adds McLean. “We want Backstreet Boys to keep setting the template and raising the bar.”

Fans were treated to a performance of new song “Permanent Stain” on Good Morning America recently.



The first single “In A World Like This” is out now and the album In A World Like This is out on the 30th July.
