Backstreet’s back! Beloved late-’90s boy band the Backstreet Boys took to social media on Wednesday to tease a new song that will be released in just a few weeks.
“We are less than a month away,” Kevin Richardson captioned a video on Instagram. In the criminally short clip, the 46-year-old can be seen and heard playing a piano melody from what would seem to be the group’s upcoming new single. The singer also posted the video on his Instagram story, and this time, he included a release date: The song is said to be arriving at radio stations in 21 days.
This will be the first new music from the group since their 2013 album In a World Like This, which was the first to feature all five original members — Richardson, Nick Carter, A.J. McLean, Brian Littrell, and Howie Dorough — since 2006.
The Boys have been actively teasing their imminent return on social media in recent weeks, with all five of them excitedly sharing updates from the set of a new music video. BSB already has a number of iconic videos under their belt — even if, as Carter recently admitted, they didn’t have the fondest memories of filming them. “[We felt] like it wasn’t the greatest music video,” he said of the defining 1999 clip for “I Want It That Way.” We’d beg to differ.
