This week the Backstreet Boys released their eighth studio album, In a World Like This. The first album on their own record label, K-BAHN, it’s also the first to feature Kevin Richardson, who made his departure after 2005?s Never Gone.
Radio.com spoke with Nick Carter this week, and he filled us in on what the songwriting process was like for the band (they wrote eight of the 12 tracks on the new LP), his favorite Backstreet Boys’ dance move, and how he deals with overzealous fans.
Radio.com: Tell us about your new album In a World Like This. How is it different from your previous releases?
Nick Carter: This album, in my opinion, it’s just solid material. Really good songs. We were having a hard time narrowing down to choose. Everybody buys singles now. Nobody really cares about buying albums anymore, rightfully enough because most people make crappy albums. Why spend all that money on it when you can just buy a single? We come from an era where we had to make an entire record that sounded like every song could all be a single. That’s what we did on this one. We had a hard time picking the first single. We give our fans that still buy albums and anybody who wants to hear a record from top to bottom, every song can be a single. We give them that.
