Backstreet Boys are to release their new album In A World Like This in the UK on 28th July.
The album marks the first album release featuring all five original members of the group – Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, AJ McLean and Kevin Richardson – since 2005’s Never Gone. It will be preceded by the title track which is released as the album’s lead single on 21st June.
For In A World Like This, the group has worked with producers Martin Terefe, Max Martin, Morgan Reid & Prophet, Dan Muckula and Justin Trugman. The album was recorded in London and Los Angeles.
“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 AJ McLean. “We want Backstreet Boys to keep setting the template and raising the bar.”
