Backstreet Boys Tease New Single 'Coming Soon,' Announce More Vegas Residency Dates

Backstreet's back, all right -- with new music and new Vegas shows.

The Backstreet Boys just announced that their Larger Than Life Vegas run is far from over, unveiling 21 new dates spanning from July 25 to Nov. 17. In celebration of the latest additions, BSB visited the Twitter headquarters in Los Angeles on Tuesday (Feb. 6) to answer some fan questions in a live Q&A, which also revealed some even bigger news: Their next single is on the way.

"Yes, we have a single. We've chosen it," Kevin Richardson said in response to a question about their next release. "It's coming out real soon. I mean, really soon."

The guys didn't disclose what "soon" means, but hinted that it could be within the next few days or weeks. "It's on Backstreet time," AJ McLean jokingly added.

Despite the cryptic hints, Richardson decided to give fans a little taste of what's in store when another tweeter asked whether the song will be a ballad or a dance track. As Howie Dorough explained that there's "some tempo to it," Richardson ran across the screen playing a short, upbeat snippet featuring the words "baby don't go breaking my heart." (Listen below.)

As the guys have previously declared, they're working on their 10th studio album. No further details have been released, but a press release with the new Vegas dates said the album coincides with BSB's 25th anniversary later this year, so a 2018 release is likely.

Whenever the new Backstreet single is set to arrive, it should definitely be before the summer, as McLean said they'd possibly be adding the song to their Vegas set list come July or August. "We're definitely going to keep trying to let the Vegas show grow," he said.

Presale tickets are available to BSB Fan Club members now, and general on-sale starts Friday. Get your tickets here, and take a look at the new dates and clip of the new single below.
