After releasing their lead single “In A World Like This” two weeks back, the Backstreet Boys’ promo train just keeps rolling — and the reunited superstars participated in a Google Hangout with their fans on Monday, sharing new info on the album and treating their audience, both in-studio and online, to an acoustic performance of the title track from their eighth LP In A World Like This.
In A World Like This marks the first studio album since 2005′s Never Gone to include all five original members, so unsurprisingly, that was a topic of conversation during the stream. On his reunion with the group, Kevin Richardson said, ”I felt inspired. I felt the desire to create music again with these guys.” Now, heading out on their 20th anniversary tour this summer, the boys feel comfortable with the way they interact as a group: “We’re more patient with each other. The older we’ve got, we appreciate one another more. We communicate a lot better. Our tempers don’t get fired up so quickly.”
