Backstreet Boys Sign New Deal with RCA Records, Release New Music

by Cyrus Webb

As someone who has been a fan of the Backstreet Boys for over 20 years, I was excited to hear that 2018 was going to be an amazing year for the group and their fans.

First they sign a new record deal with RCA Records and then came the biggie: word of a new single AND video. "Don't Go Breaking My HEart" is out now on and the other online retailers, and already it is climbing the charts.

“The minute we heard this song we knew it was special,” says Kevin Richardson of the group. “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, the Backstreet Boys will be making the rounds of the new outlets including returning 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.

I told my friends that the new music takes you back to when you first became fans of the group in the very beginning. 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 the guys their first #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 (expletive) 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.”
