A New Era of Backstreet: Everything You Might Have Missed About ‘DNA’ Album + World Tour (So Far)

It’s finally here!!

While we LOVE the Vegas residency, collabs, solo work and whatnot, we have been waited for years (literally) for a new Backstreet Boys album and tour. We’ve heard songs that “may or may not be” on the album on the 2018 cruise, we’ve been promised for a while, and we’ve gotten two singles and now…. THE TIME HAS COME.

And boy has it come!

In the past 24 hours, we’ve gotten…

A NEW SINGLE

A NEW MUSIC VIDEO

A NEW ALBUM RELEASE DATE

A NEW TOUR

TWO NEW FANCLUB PACKAGES

…and a partridge in a pear tree! (Not really, we just wanted make sure you were still paying attention)

With all new things comes, of course, questions. We, of course, like to answer what we can and post the rest when we get it. While we’ve been answering your questions via social media all morning, we hope to get the most common questions answered here for you.

Let’s break it down, shall we?

— The Single: Chances —

The music video for the Backstreet Boys second single off their upcoming album, DNA, dropped and BOYYYYYY, is it good! The song, created with the help of Ryan Tedder and Shawn Mendes, is fire. The video, co-directed by AJ himself, is so fantastic you can’t help but watch it a few times (or a hundred).

We’ll have a thoughts on the video post soon, but for now, STREAM, PURCHASE, WATCH!

#WhatAreTheChances That The Backstreet Boys Know How Much They’ve Changed Our Lives?

With the release of the Backstreet Boys’ second new single in 2018 on the horizon (“Chances” drops November 9th) and their use of  #WhatAreTheChances via social media to invite fans to share stories about the chance they got to meet best friends, significant others, and other sweet memories, we started reflecting. Join us, won’t you?

What Are The Chances…

…that a 14 year old actor would answer a newspaper ad about forming a band,

…that he would know a 19 year old singer / actor auditioning under the name Tony Donetti,

…that a 12 year old would turn down a contract with the Mickey Mouse Club to join a group that didn’t even exist,

…that a 22 year old playing Aladdin and a Ninja Turtle at Disney World would hear about the group and join,

…that he would have an 18 year old cousin, still in high school, with the voice of an angel who would ultimately complete the group?

What Are The Chances…

…that the group would name themselves the Backstreet Boys after a flea market in Orlando, FL where they rehearsed tirelessly,

…that the Backstreet Boys would travel around to high schools performing before heading overseas and gaining international fame,

…that these five young men would put in the hard work and endless sacrifices to become a household name in their own country,

…that they’d still be around 25 years, selling out a Vegas residency, releasing their 10th studio album, and releasing a new single?

What Are The Chances…

…that we’d still know every word to every song,

…that we’d still have our memorabilia tucked away,

…that we’d be sharing their music with our children,

…that we’d get the same feeling we got the first time we saw them to this day?

What Are The Chances…

…that they would be the reason so many of us are friends turned family,

…that they would be the reason we have passports and have traveled to places we would have never dreamed going to,

…that they would inspire us without even knowing it,

…that we’d be celebrating birthdays, milestones, and triumphs with them,

…that we would travel the earth and the seas to get a high off of their music,

…that Kevin, Howie, Brian, AJ and Nick would mean so much to us?

What Are The Chances…

…that we’d see pieces of ourselves in their own struggles,

…that they’d share those pieces of themselves with us – the highs and lows, the ups and downs,

…that we’d learn so much from five men who enticed us with their music and kept us with their integrity, their hard work, their kindness, their humility, their honesty and their willingness to keep growing and be better?

What Are The Chances…

…that a band would change and / or save our lives?

…that a band would keep giving us the escape we all need?

…that a band would be our constant when the rest of the world is too much?

…that we would be so lucky?

What Are The Chances…

…that we’ll always want it that way?

…that we’ll never say OH MY GOD without thinking “we’re back again”?

…that we’ll ever say “gotta go” normally?

…that we’ll ever stop rolling our windows down and the music up anytime the Backstreet Boys come on?

…that they’ll ever truly know how much they’ve meant to us?

What Are The Chances?

Well, they’re like two in a million… like once in a lifetime.
