Brian recently did a interview with Windy City Times and was asked about leaving Jive and the next album.
WCT: The big news that you posted May 27 on your website, under the title, “Freedom,” is that you are no longer singing for Jive Records. What does freedom mean for the Backstreet Boys’ career moving forward?
BL: It’s simply continuing to move forward, to make new memories. A lot of people are stuck with what was of the Backstreet Boys a few years ago. And there’s a lot of songs to be sung, a lot of music to be made, a lot of shows and a lot of tours to come for us in the future. And I think the freedom that we have really is to be ourselves, to continue to make music that makes us happy first because as long as we’re happy with it and content with it then we can continue to share it with the world.
WCT: Did your contract with Jive expire or was it a mutual parting of the ways?
BL: Not to get into crazy, crazy detail but we have one more record to deliver to Jive but we were able to get out of that contract based upon giving them a certain territory where they can market the record, that being Japan. Japan is our number-one market, Japan and Southeast Asia. So they wanted to keep that market because of the money being made there. So it’s basically a win-win for them but it’s also a win-win for us in regards to really being able to cut our ties to focus on new memories and new goals that we can set as a group and as a band.
Nick and Howie were at the official Backstreet Boys after party at Ultra 88 Night Club in Uncasville, CT June 16, 2010. Thanks to Mohegan Sun Facebook.
Nick posted on twitter earlier that he does not have a private facebook. So if you are following someone on facebook saying they are Nick it’s not him. It’s a poser.
nickcarter Just so everyone knows. I DO NOT have a private face book page.
From where Backstreet Boys’ Nick Carter is standing, things are looking pretty good. Concerts on the act’s tour — as well as copies of its greatest-hits collection, “Playlist: The Very Best of Backstreet Boys” — are selling briskly. Now if he could only persuade radio to play songs from Backstreet Boys’ latest album, “This Is Us,” everything would be perfect.
“It’s sad that people aren’t getting the chance to hear it much,” Carter said. “But that’s cool. All we have to do is go on tour and promote it that way.”
Backstreet Boys, who recently joined Korn in boycotting BP oil, are on tour through July in support of the album. During a tour stop in Boston, Carter took the time to talk to SoundSpike about the performances, the upcoming Backstreet Boys cruise and his tour bus.
SoundSpike: How’s the tour going so far?
Nick Carter: The tour is going fantastic. We’re having a lot of fun. From what we’re seeing from the stage, it’s kind of sold out. [Laughs] We’re kind of excited. Everybody’s excited. I’m on a bus right now — and isn’t Kid Rock from Detroit? I have Kid Rock’s bus. There’s a big D everywhere on my bus for Detroit. [Laughs]
