Backstreet’s back, alright, and they’re here with snippets of songs from their as-yet-untitled forthcoming album. Backstreet Boys  celebrated their 20th anniversary this week, which included getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today (April 22), and they shared bits of eight tracks at an album preview event on Saturday. Now six of the teasers are available in a compilation on YouTube.

It’s a bit overwhelming to hear samples of so many tracks compressed into one two-and-a-half minute clip, but there are definitely gems to be found within. Of particular note are “In Your Arms,” which is a more contemporary dance track that shows how BSB have evolved to remain relevant, and “P.S.,” which is an anthemic throwback to their turn-of-the-millennium sound. Most intriguing are “Madeline” and “Trust Me,” one an encouraging mid-tempo acoustic-and-piano piece (could it be that “beautiful” Max Martin collab?) and the other a summery slow-ish jam that features fun falsetto harmonies in the chorus. The latter two are the most unique tracks here and probably the biggest diversions from the late-90s sound listeners most associate with the band.

The album doesn’t have an official release date yet, but you can head below to listen to the sampler.

What do you think of the new BSB material? Let us know in the comments below, or on Twitter or Facebook.

    I love how positive these songs are! That’s what the Backstreet Boys were always great at, positive, uplifting music. Excited to hear more.

    I just can’t wait!!!

  3. I feel that this is a slight throwback to all the previous albums. I also feel like this album is being judged a whole lot more by FANS than any album before it. I personally LOVE these songs already. I think with the critics starting in, some fans are afraid to embrace The guys modern sound. If there is one thing I have learned from being in the #BackstreetFamily for the last 15 years (since 1995) its that these guys ALWAYS deliver! No matter what anyone says. Fans are going to LOVE this album just like all the others, and I really feel this is the year of the GRAMMY! KTBSPA! Thank you for always being there guys, I would be Incomplete without you!
