BERLIN (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The Backstreet Boys have signed a publishing and recording deal that will see their latest album, "In A World Like This" through international rights management company BMG.
The announcement comes as the "boys" prepares to celebrate their 20th Anniversary with all five founding members reunited under the Backstreet banner. Over the course of their career, the Grammy-nominated group has generated sales of over 130 million albums worldwide and helped to launch the boy band resurgence of the 1990s.
The forthcoming album features 12 tracks of new material, mostly co-written by members of the group themselves. The album was recorded in London and LA, with production by Martin Terefe, Max Martin, Morgan Reid & Prophet, Dan Muckula and Justin Trugman.
The album is set to hit the shelves through the U.S. and Europe starting on July 29th and will presage an international tour of amphitheaters and arenas by the group, that kicks off on August 2nd in Chicago and extends through 2014. It has been a busy summer for the Backstreet Boys, who just wound up a sold out tour of China in June. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
