The announcement comes along with the release of their new album, “DNA,” on Jan. 25, 2019. Now available for pre-order, “DNA” features songs written by Lauv (Charli XCX), Andy Grammer, Stuart Crichton (DNCE) and Mike Sabbath (J Balvin).

BSB analyzed their individual DNA profiles to see what crucial element each member represents in the group’s DNA. In the video, see how their individual strains, when brought together, create the unstoppable and legendary Backstreet Boys.

Earlier today, to get fans excited, BSB released their new single, a Ryan Tedder, Shawn Mendes penned track “Chances.” Listen and watch the official video for the song below.

“When this group started 26 years ago – and through all the highs and lows of our career – we’ve had to learn it wasn’t about us as individuals but about what’s best for the group,” says Howie D.

“That’s what I love about this album,” adds Kevin Richardson. “We were able to bring all of our influences and styles into one coherent piece of work. These songs are a great representation of who we are as individuals and who we are as a group. It’s our DNA. We’re really proud of that.”

“The journey is ongoing with us and there is so much left to do,” says Brian Littrell. “We’re living the next chapter that hasn’t been told yet, and that’s exciting.”

After 14 months of setting and breaking records in Las Vegas, BSB’s residency “Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life” will come to an end on April 27, 2019.

“Vegas has been amazing and these next set of dates are going to be a party,” says Howie D. “Then it’s time for us to visit our fans all over the world.”
