Backstreet’s Back…to Their Roots
by Kopitiam Team , 06 Oct 2009

The Backstreet Boys were in town recently for their concert at the Singapore F1 race and to promote their latest album. Singapore Kopitiam joins the queue to see what the fuss is all about.

While other boy bands of their era have broken up, the Backstreet Boys (BSB) are still going strong. It’s hard to imagine the Boys -- Nick Carter (age 29), Brian Littrell (31 34), Howie Dorough (36) and AJ McLean (31) -- have been together for 16 and a half years. (Editors' Note: Brian's correct age is 34. Thanks for the heads-up dear BSB fan!)

In town recently to perform at the Singapore F1 Grand Prix, the boys took some time out to preview tracks off their new album and getting quizzed from some of their ardent fans in a Meet & Greet session at the Fairmont Hotel’s Ink Club Bar.The latest studio album -- entitled “This Is Us” -- is the group’s seventh, and sees them going back to the uptempo dance style they started off with. Many would consider this a surprising move, especially since the group have always prided themselves on their vocal harmony.

Backstreet Boys member Nick Carter offered an explanation as to the change in musical and creative direction.

“We had to look back on the past and see who we were, and what our fans liked the most. We feel we did it with this album,” said the Carter at the interview session. “We did it from a current standpoint and got a lot of great producers to help. That’s why the album is called This Is Us.

One thing’s for sure: The boys are hell-bent on hogging the radio again. While their previous two albums, “Unbreakable” and “Never Gone”, received lukewarm response from the public, the new album features a slew of powerhouse producers and songwriters. No expense has been spared in engaging producers like T-Pain, RedOne and Claude Kelly. Miami rapper Pitbull was also roped in to collaborate on the hip-hop inspired track Helpless.

No BSB album is complete, though, without those heart-wrenching ballads. After all, how else will the four boys show off their impeccable voices and warm the hearts of their predominantly female fans? And true to form, “This Is Us” features three ballads where the boys sing about love, or the lack thereof.

Producer du jour, Ryan Tedder of One Republic, has produced award-winning songs for superstars like Beyonce and Kelly Clarkson. His Midas Touch is again evident on the track Undone, a haunting song about love lost and one that has all the makings of a potential chart-topper.

“We pride ourselves on making good music. Each record, we try to top the last one. And I think this record, we’re all very proud of it,” added Howie Dorough.

Howie also hinted at a possible stop in Singapore for their “This Is Us
” world tour early next year. So ladies, start saving up!

This Is Us comes out in stores on 6 October.
