Backstreet Boys have released their new single Don’t Go Breaking My Heart along with the music video for the track.
Marking their 25th anniversary, the band have unveiled the single and its official video directed by longtime BSB collaborators Rich + Tone. Don’t Go Breaking My Heart is released via RCA Records.
“The minute we heard this song we knew it was special,” says Kevin Richardson. “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.”
Don’t Go Breaking My Heart was recorded after the first leg of the group’s record-breaking Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life Las Vegas Residency. The track is an electro-pop banger that is hard and funky, standing tall against the group’s contemporaries.
The single was written by Stephen Wrabel (Ellie Goulding) and produced by Stuart Crichton (Kesha) and Jamie Hartman (James Bay). It’s the first new music from the group since they teamed up with Florida Georgia Line for their single God, Your Mama and Me, which was released as a single in 2017.
“We’ve been working our ass 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.”
Backstreet Boys will support the single with a return to the Good Morning America Summer Concert Series in New York’s Central Park on 13th July 2018. They will also perform at this year’s KIIS FM Wango Tango.
Later in the year Backstreet Boys will return to their Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life Las Vegas Residency.
