The Backstreet Boys are thrilled to announce the release of their forthcoming new album DNA – set for release January 25 via RCA Records and Sony Music Entertainment Australia. The group's 10th studio album – now available for pre-order – features songs written by Lauv (Charli XCX), Andy Grammer, Stuart Crichton (DNCE) and Mike Sabbath (J Balvin).
In celebration of the album announce – earlier today – BSB released their new single 'Chances' – a Ryan Tedder and Shawn Mendes penned track. Listen and watch the official video for the song here.
Beginning on May 11 2019, the group will embark on their biggest arena tour in 18 years! Over the course of 3 months, the BSB will perform their "DNA World Tour" all over Europe and North America, headlining venues such as the Staples Center in Los Angeles, The Barclays Center in Brooklyn and the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. Tickets will go on sale November 14th at LiveNation.com and every ticket purchased to the North American headlining tour will include one (1) physical copy of DNA.
The BSB analysed their individual DNA profiles to see what crucial element each member represents in the groups DNA. Watch the video here to see how their individual strains – when brought together – create the unstoppable and legendary Backstreet Boys.
"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," says Howie D.
"That's what I love about this album," adds Kevin Richardson. "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," says Brian Littrell. "We're living the next chapter that hasn't been told yet, and that's exciting."
After 14 months of setting and breaking records in Las Vegas, BSB's residency "Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life" will come to an end on April 27, 2019.
"Vegas has been amazing and these next set of dates are going to be a party," says Howie. "Then it's time for us to visit our fans all over the world."
