NKOTBSB -- 2011 New Album Preview


In addition to hitting the road together this summer, New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys have announced they will be releasing a joint NKOTBSB album on May 24.

The as-yet-untitled record will feature five tracks from each band and new recordings by the combined supergroup.

Fans can vote for their favorite songs at The top five vote-getters from each boy band will make the final track listing. Fans who pre-order the album before March 24 can even have their name printed in the liner notes.

While it remains to be seen how the final vote will shape up, the current leaders in the voting are New Kids favorites 'You Got It (The Right Stuff),' 'Please Don't Go Girl' and 'Hangin' Tough,' as well as Backstreet hits 'I Want it That Way,' 'Larger Than Life' and 'Everybody (Backstreet's Back).'

The album will include at least one new NKOTBSB song: 'Don't Turn Out the Lights,' a contemporary dance song that BSB members Brian Littrell and AJ McLean premiered during a Backstreet cruise in December. Also included will be mash-ups of songs by both bands, similar to the hits medley NKOTBSB performed at last fall's American Music Awards.

The album's release date coincides with the beginning of the NKOTBSB summer tour, which will find the groups crisscrossing the U.S. and Canada from May to August.
