Emilia BSB Album

Howie Dorough recently did an interview with Entertainment Weekly and talked about the new Backstreet Boys album.

You mentioned a new single. When can we expect that?
Very shortly. We’re hopefully talking about here in March. We got some nice little tricks up our sleeves. We’re going to be performing at the iHeartRadio Music Awards on March 11. We’ve got a lot of great, exciting new stuff coming around the corner for us as a group and even individually. I was just in New York myself working on a side project that I’m very proud to talk about — a little musical that I’ve put together called How We Do. It’s a fun little musical loosely based on my life growing up in a multi-racial family and just trying to find your place in life and acceptance, a lot of common things that kids deal with. It’s a good year for the Backstreet Boys, not only as a group but also individually.

I know you all are working on your 10th studio album. Anything you can share about it?
We’re actually still creating right now. We have enough to probably put a record out, but we’re always trying to push the envelope. We just got our recent single, which actually we just recorded two weeks ago. It’s a great, great song that we’re very proud of, very current, very hip, I think it’s going to really fit well in the scene right now. But we’re constantly trying to make good music that fits our five-part harmony that’s unique and sets us a little bit apart, and we’re always trying to get that good pop melody. We’re not trying to reinvent the wheel, but at the same time, we’re always trying to evolve and make music that we’re proud of. At the end of the day, it’s making sure that we’re proud of the music we put out there and feel that we put out a good product for our fans when all is said and done.
