It’s an exciting day for Backstreet Boys fans, as the group not only dropped their new single “Chances” and revealed details of their upcoming LP DNA, but they also announced their biggest arena tour in 18 years.
Shawn Mendes and Ryan Tedder penned BSB’s latest track, with the band releasing the music video, which they revealed was actually filmed in a train station while it was open.
The group — which consists of AJ McLean, Howie Dorough, Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson, and Brian Littrell — confirmed the song is taken off their 10th studio album, which will be released on January 25.
Dorough said in a press release, “When this group started 26 years ago – and through all the highs and lows of our career – we’ve had to learn it wasn’t about us as individuals but about what’s best for the group.”
Richardson added: “That’s what I love about this album. We were able to bring all of our influences and styles into one coherent piece of work. These songs are a great representation of who we are as individuals and who we are as a group. It’s our DNA. We’re really proud of that.”
“The journey is ongoing with us and there is so much left to do. We’re living the next chapter that hasn’t been told yet, and that’s exciting,” Littrell shared.
The band’s Las Vegas “Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life” residency is coming to an end on April 27, 2019 after 14 months, and they’re now getting ready to hit the road on their “DNA World Tour” next May.
