Backstreet Boys have released a new single, Don’t Go Breaking My Heart, along with a video that finds the group singing and dancing as it does best.
BSB, which recently marked its 25th anniversary, revealed via Twitter this week that a new song was on the way with the humorous post, “Excuse the dad joke but… we’re back,” in reference to one of their biggest hits Everybody (Backstreet’s Back).
Bandmate Kevin Richardson said of the track in a statement: “The minute we heard this song we knew it was special. I geeked out over the piano and synths. When that groove drops on the second verse, COME ON.”
The electro-pop track is accompanied by a video by longtime BSB collaborators Rich + Tone.
Backstreet Boys released their last studio album, World Like This, in 2013. There’s no word about whether Don’t Go Breaking My Heart is destined for a forthcoming album, but the band did previously reveal that they’re at work on a 10th LP. – AFP
