Nick, Howie, Brian, AJ and Kevin are currently in a London studio with producer Martin Terefe (Mary J Blige, Train, Jason Mraz), working on their first new album together since 2005. The new album will be released in the spring of 2013. Stay tuned for more details.
Richardson happily says, "Being back with my brothers again feels great. I love these guys. We have gone through so much together. We just have a chemistry ... a bond that will always be." Litrell adds, "Having Kevin back in the mix adds that extra special magic to our group. We're over the moon to have him back and it's a great way to give back to our fans."
Along with the release of their new album, Backstreet Boys have been honored with a star on the legendary Hollywood Walk Of Fame in Los Angeles, CA. BSB's star will bring everlasting memories of their star power, talent, and popularity to the millions who visit this internationally recognized Hollywood icon each year.
Over the last 20 years, the Backstreet Boys have sold more than 130 million albums worldwide and ushered in a chapter of pop culture that commandeered the world's radio airwaves, broke music and concert sales records, and launched a new generation of teen idols.
