Backstreet’s back, alright!
Fresh from celebrating their 25th anniversary, the Backstreet Boys have released a brand new single called ‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart’, having signed with RCA Records.
Written by Stephen Wrabel (Ellie Goulding) and produced by Stuart Crichton (Kesha) and Jamie Hartman (James Bay), the infectious ‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart’ sees the Backstreet Boys channel a funky, synth-heavy sound.
The accompanying music video, directed by their long time collaborators Rich + Tone, sees Nick, Brian, Kevin, AJ and Howie show off their best dance moves against a variety of neon screens.
Speaking about the single, Kevin said: “The minute we heard this song we knew it was special. 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.”

Alongside the release of the new single, it has been confirmed that Backstreet Boys will perform for Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series. They will take to the stage at New York’s Central Park on July 13.
They also have a string of summer shows planned, including KIIS FM Wango Tango, before they continue their Las Vegas residency, which was extended earlier this year.
