It’s first time the Backstreet Boys have been in the studio since 2005 and on Tuesday the group dropped by Good Morning America with a big announcement about a new album and tour. Joining GMA via satellite from their recording studio in London, the ’90s boy band reveals they’ve reunited to create new music together.
All five members, including expectant dad A.J. McLean, Kevin Richardson, Nick Carter, Howie Dorough and Brian Littrell, are living together while working on the new album.
“It’s our first time in the studio together, all five of us, since 2005,” Howie explained. “We’re recording our brand new record right here in London.”
Nick chimed in with:
“We wake up. We have breakfast together. We’re not sick of each other at all. It’s awesome. It really is. The vibe is fantastic.”
The quintet is working with producer Martin Terefe — whose resume includes work with Mary J. Blige, Train and Jason Mraz — on the still-untitled album.
BSB’s first reunion performance is set for Aug. 31 on GMA.
