BSB will also headline Good Morning America Concert Series this summer
Nineties nostalgia continues as the Backstreet Boys announce they have signed with RCA Records and have released their electric new single “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” and music video directed by long time BSB collaborators Rich + Tone. The announcement comes on the heels of the boy band’s 25th anniversary.
“The minute we heard this song we knew it was special,” says Kevin Richardson. “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.”
In support of the new single, BSB will return to the Good Morning America Summer Concert Series in New York’s Central Park on July 13th. The group will also perform at a series of summer radio shows like this year’s KIIS FM Wango Tango before returning to their record-breaking Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life Las Vegas residency.
Recorded immediately after the first leg of their highly successful Las Vegas residency, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” has the energy of a group who had a remarkable year and who channeled their excitement into a new song that hits harder and funkier than ever before.
It’s hard not to think the group’s latest activities didn’t shape this track. Whether it’s the creative relationship with Florida Georgia Line that earned BSB their first No. 1 country radio single; working with a variety of new and young producers; there’s an undeniable energy and creativity surrounding the Backstreet Boys and “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” is an extraordinary new track from a group who continues to impress 25 years into their storied career.
“We’ve been working our ass off for 25 years,” says AJ McLean “and with the support of RCA and our contemporaries, we know we’ll be performing for fans, both old and new, for a really long time. It feels like we’re just getting started.”
“Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” – now available on all digital platforms – was written by Stephen Wrabel (Ellie Goulding) and produced by Stuart Crichton (Kesha) and Jamie Hartman (James Bay).
