Rolling Stone caught up with the guys about the new album and tour and said:
In A World Like This is an album that sees the guys revisiting the groundbreaking dance-pop sound that first made them international superstars. Songs like the Max Martin penned first single, In A World Like This, are classic BSB, bursting with big hooks, unforgettable melodies, and high-energy rhythms that both highlights the group’s classic sound and vision while also placing it squarely in the here and now.
The first single “In A World Like This” will be available everywhere starting on June 25th. Stay tuned for more news and activities surrounding the single release!
“We always want to top our previous albums. That’s always our objective,” says Carter. “All five of us were determined to create an album where every song could be a single.”
Backstreet Boys did just that. In A World Like This captures unified voices making the most vital music imaginable, and five talented artists creating influential, unforgettable pop.
“Our goal is always to push ourselves as much as possible,” adds McLean. “We want Backstreet Boys to keep setting the template and raising the bar.”
In A World Like This was recorded in London and Los Angeles with producers / fans Martin Terefe, Max Martin, Morgan Reid & Prophet, Dan Muckula and Justin Trugman.
One of the most successful groups in music history, with countless #1s, record-setting tours, and worldwide sales in excess of 130 million, Backstreet Boys are also among pop’s most influential.
