From their debut international album in 1996, to 22 years later in 2018. Backstreet Boys are showing no signs of putting down the mic. Even though they had their ups and downs they still keep on going. And we should be grateful their first two albums will forever stay a classic. Even their popularity seems to haven’t taken a big of a hit. From having most of their songs on no.1 on the charts to sill be able to have a buzz about their new album 22 years later. They have proved themselves time and time again that they aren’t just a boy band. But more of a vocal harmony group.
Backstreet Boys announce new album “DNA”
In the September of 2016, AJ Mclean and Nick Carter confirmed that they were working on an album and they would be done with the next year. And later that month they announced their residency Las Vegas tour called Backstreet Boys: Larger than life would start in 2017. So it did on March 1st, 2017 and is scheduled to end in April of 2019.
The boy band announced their album “DNA” on Tuesday. And they also released dates for the 2019 DNA world tour, the group will start the tour from Portugal and wrapping up it in New Jersey. The tour is set to last a couple months from May to September.
After no releasing music for at least 3 years, Backstreet Boys finally released a song ‘Don’t go Breaking my heart’ earlier this year. It was released on May 17, 2018, and they also signed to RCA records during this time. A week ago they dropped a new single called ‘Chances’ and announced their new album DNA.
There isn’t much information regarding the album like track list or upcoming singles. But we do know the people that have worked on the album. So here is that information:
They have been working with artists like Shawn Mendes and Ryan Tedder. And the song ‘Chances’ released on the 9th of November was written by both of those artists. The DNA tour will be the groups biggest arena tour in 18 years. It will be produced by Live Nation.
