By Steve Brown

Backstreet’s back alright! Backstreet Boys have surprised everyone with a new comeback single.

The 90s boyband – featuring AJ McLean, Howie D., Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson and Brian Littrell – have signed a new record deal with RCA Records who released their electric new single ‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart’ today May 17th, along with its official music video directed by long time BSB collaborators Rich + Tone.

The new single marks their 25th anniversary and it’s brilliant!

“The minute we heard this song we knew it was special,” says Richardson.

“I geeked out over the piano and synths. When that groove drops on the second verse, COME ON. Great verse, hook and melodies. Just makes you wanna listen over and over again.”

“We’ve been working our ass off for 25 years,” added McLean.

 “And with the support of RCA and our contemporaries, we know we’ll be performing for fans, both old and new, for a really long time. It feels like we’re just getting started.”

‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart’ – now available on all digital platforms – was written by Stephen Wrabel (Ellie Goulding) and produced by Stuart Crichton (Kesha) and Jamie Hartman (James Bay). 

For 25 years, the Backstreet Boys have been one of the most successful groups in music history and continue to be one of pop’s most influential performers in the world. 

With countless #1s, record-setting tours, numerous awards and worldwide sales in excess of 130 million, BSB has been recognized as the best-selling boy band in history.
