The Backstreet Boys are back and courting Diplo and The Chainsmokers to produce their next album
The Backstreet Boys just signed to RCA Records for their 10th studio album, but this one might feature more than just the iconic 90s boy band. In an exclusive interview with Entertainment Tonight, AJ McLean shared that the band was shopping for an electronic music producer to potentially to contribute their new album.
“We’re reaching out to people who we were always inspired by or who may have been fans and we didn’t even know,” AJ McLean shared. “We’ve all made friends with different people. Nick’s been talking to Steve Aoki, Howie talked to Zedd, who’s been a big, big fan [and] Diplo, we’ve also talked to. We’ve also done stuff with The Chainsmokers and those guys are amazing and out in Vegas with a residency as well, so who knows.”
Later on in the interview, the band mentioned Timbaland, who Nick Carter has been working on the show Boy Band with, could be another viable option. With such a star studded cast of potential producers for their 10th studio album, it seems as if 90s kids and electronic music lovers alike will have something to listen to with the Backstreet Boy’s new album.
