Backstreet Boys: Another Album On The Way!

Backstreet Boys: Another Album On The Way!

You haven’t heard the last of the Backstreet Boys!

AJ McLean, 30, Howie Dorough, 34, Nick Carter, 28, and Brian Littrell, 33, have already started working on its follow-up to last year’s “Unbreakable,” reports Billboard.

BSB already recorded some new material for their six studio album while on tour in Europe. But the boys have plans to hit the studio again after its tour of North America, which starts Tuesday in St. John’s, Newfoundland, and wraps on Sept. 6 in Seattle.

“We’re looking at getting back into the studio quite quickly,” says Dorough, adding that BSB may work again with Swedish producer/writer Max Martin, who worked with the group on “I Want it That Way,” “Shape of My Heart,” “Quit Playing Games (With My Heart)”.

“We want to hopefully have something ready to go or at least be heavily into it by the end of the year and have something out towards the beginning of next year,” Dorough says.

Dorough and McLean also have solo projects in the works.

    Yay, I’ve seriously been a fan since I was 12 and now I’m 25. For all the people who say they’re a joke: why would they be a joke when they’re doing what they love and still have millions of fans all over the world. IIt doesn’t matter if boybands are considered “cool” or not. If they bother you so much you seriously have a problem.

  • dani

    yea!!!!!! love love them!!!!

    i just want to say, just because all americans hate them doesnt mean they are not successful in other places like europe, yes maybe they are over in the united stated but only there and that is because you live in a bubble with all that crap like hip hop, r&b

    this is the unbrekeable tour in London, watch this and learn

  • leonor

    love them

  • K.b.

    YAY seeing them in 11 days can’t wait to see them again been a fan for 13 years! KTBSPA

  • Gab =]

    real talent should be recognized!!
    They would be more appreciated if they had decided to break up the group years ago… then these ridiculous ppl would love them today, they would feel so cool, cause they would be able to say they’re retro, vintage or whatever …
    but bsb made the SMART decision to stay together for their REAL fans, and some stupid narrow-minded ppl that are so afraid of other ppl’s thoughts to give REAL TALENT a chance..
    but it’s so much better like this you can all keep on listening to justin, miley cyrus, timbaland or whatever it is you listen to, cause talent like this doesn’t happen very often and I’m very fortunate to have bsb in my life for many many years now…
    KTBSPA!!!
    americans do suck at this point, I’m sorry, you guys do live in a bubble! break it you guys.. start by never coming to just jared again !!LOL
    seriously, media masks reality , and the reality is they’re one of the best (in my opinion the best) vocal group ever!!!

  • katkat

    Love the BSB since ’99 and I was disapointed they didn’t tour in the US, only in Europe. I might get the next one only if they tour in the US!

  • Luke

    YYYEEES!! They really can make GOOD MUSIC!! And they aint a boybant they are a BAND!

  • Queena

    I thought their past two albums were ASTOUNDING! They’ve grown so much musically and have a more mature sound than they did back in the day. I’m THRILLED about this news! :)

  • adie

    That’s great news for the BSB fans. Just not for me. Aren’t there a 5th member?

  • Alison

    YAY!!!!!! I’m EXCITED!!!!!

  • LLAWDY

    omgf i love these dudes. I am an American and have to agree with many of the posts. Sadly most of us, do live in a bubble. tend to think in terms of me, me, me, me, me. Its sad, but you have to understand we’ve been conditioned to live life in this sort of fashion. I’d also like to clarify that there is a massive amount of people like me in american that realize this problem.

    going back to the topic on hand, next concert, i’m there! I have the money to pay for it now!!!!!!!!!!

  • KTBSBPA

    I love these dudes, and think this is the best idea ever. Like ever! This time around, in the time that I am living and older, I will be able to go to a concert and afford the front row seats. I plan on going there.

    As to the Americans live in a bubble, I agree. I am an American but I do believe that that is how most live. We have the mentality of me, me, me, me. If we don’t like it, it should be banned. But, just to clarify, this is how we’ve been conditoned. We live in such a weird time, where everybody is only thinking about their own skin and not trying to understand anything else beyond what affects them, i.e, since we don’t live outside the US we don’t tend to pay attention to anyone elses problems. But, lucky for you guys, not all americans are this way. Believe me. There are millions and millions who are educated and do see beyond the scope of the US. I read everything about the world we live in, and my world doesn’t end with news that are only published in the US but all over the world – or at least news that deals with the happenings of the whole world. Just wanted to clarify that not ALL americans are ignorant or that live in a bubble.

    Going back to the topic on hand, I love BSB forever. They will always remain a part of me. <3
