Backstreet Boys have unveiled their tenth studio album, DNA.
The 12-track offering was released on Friday (January 25) and fans have been lapping up the new material from AJ, Brian, Howie, Kevin and Nick, calling it “outstanding” and “a masterpiece”.
DNA includes the previously released ‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart’, ‘Chances’ and ‘No Place’, in addition to a series of new tracks. It is the band’s most varied album to date, and includes tracks written by the likes of Ryan Tedder, Shawn Mendes, Lauv, Emily Warren, James Newman and more.
For this album, Backstreet Boys “analyzed their individual DNA profiles to see what crucial element each member represents in the group’s DNA.”
In a press release, Kevin said: “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.”
Here at CelebMix, whilst the love the album in its entirety, ‘Chances’, ‘OK’, ‘The Way It Was’, and ‘Passionate’ are some of our favourites.
