Following the example of New Kids on the Block and 98 Degrees, Backstreet Boys will release a new studio album in 2013. “In A World Like This” will be released on July 30, and three days later, the Boys will kick off a North American tour in Chicago.
On Wednesday morning (May 15), the five members of BSB appeared on “Good Morning America” and premiered a new song, “Permanent Stain.” The upcoming album’s first single, “In a World Like This,” is set to be released on June 25, and is said to be a return to the bombastic hooks of their earlier work.
“We always want to top our previous albums,” Nick Carter says in a press statement. “All five of us were determined to create an album where every song could be a single.”
The album and tour announcement comes on the heels of the band’s 20th anniversary in April, in which they were awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Recorded in London and Los Angeles with producers like Max Martin, Martin Terefe and Justin Trugman, “In a World Like This” marks the recording return of Kevin Richardson, who departed the group following 2005′s “Never Gone” and returned to BSB in 2012.
