The Backstreet Boys have announced a new album, to be released on October 6th, 2009 on Jive Records. This will make for the group’s 7th album. Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell and AJ McLean collaborated with a group of producers and songwriters on This Is Us that included T-Pain, Max Martin, RedOne, Soulshock and Karlin, Jim Jonsin and Claude Kelly.
From the sound of it, the tracks are about the boys grown up, but without losing their pop sound.
“We’re really excited to release this new album and know that our fans are excited too. We worked with a group of amazing artists and producers that we’ve never worked with before, exploring new sounds and territory and know the final product turned out incredible,” says Carter.
Backstreet Boys plan on spending the second half of 2009 and all of 2010 on the road. A European tour has already been announced and a full North American headlining tour will be announced shortly. Tour dates can be found on the group’s official website www.backstreetboys.com.
