Backstreet Boys Release First New Music in 5 Years

After 5 years with no new music, the Backstreet Boys have finally released a new single, titled Don’t Go Breaking My Heart.

The long awaited released of a new single comes five years after the release of their last album In a World Like This. 

This time the group got personal, singing about heartbreak, a staple in many pop songs, But the group knew that they came up with something special this time. 

“The minute we heard this song we knew it was special,” Kevin Richardson said 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.” Bandmate Howie Dorough added, “It had that wow factor from the demo through to its final recording.”

The group has just celebrated their 25th anniversary and have been working on their Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life Las Vegas residency as well as a new studio album, which will be their 10th. 

Their new album is set to drop this year.
