Backstreet Boys member Brian Littrell will soon be recording for the Sony/BMG-owned Provident Music Group label Reunion Records. His signing is expected to be officially announced Wednesday (Dec. 8) at Paragon Studio, near Provident's Franklin, Tenn., headquarters.

Littrell has long been rumored to be working on a solo release for the Christian market. Details on the album were not available at deadline.

As previously reported, the Backstreet Boys have been working on a new album due in the first quarter of 2005. The five-piece vocal group staged a brief tour earlier this fall, consisting of mostly international dates.

To date, only group member Nick Carter has released a solo album, issuing "Now or Never" in 2002 through Jive, also home to the Backstreet Boys. The group's last studio release was 2001's "Black and Blue," which debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 5.4 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
