Backstreet Boys plan new album, 'GMA' concert
Posted July 17, 2012
Big announcement today from the Backstreet Boys. They appeared on Good Morning America via satellite from London to unveil plans for their fifth studio album.
"We're really excited -- this actually is our first time in the studio together, all five of us, since 2005," said Howie Dorough, 38. He said they are recording it in London, where they are living together.
"We wake up. We have breakfast together. We're not sick of each other at all," Carter said on GMA. "It's awesome. It really is. The vibe is fantastic."
The album is expected to be released next spring, as the group celebrates its 20th anniversary.
Between 2006 and early 2012, Dorough, Brian Littrell, 37, Nick Carter, 32, and AJ McLean, 34, performed without their fifth member, Kevin Richardson. In late April, the group announced that Richardson, 40, was back after a six-year hiatus.
Today, the group said they will perform on GMA on Aug. 31. The concert will mark the first time the band has officially reunited since 2006 and will be part of the GMA 2012 Summer Concert Series in Central Park.
