It's an NKOTBSB summer, kicking off with the eagerly-anticipated release of NKOTBSB, the ultimate single disc pairing fan-picked classic tracks by New Kids On The Block and Backstreet Boys with the premiere studio recordings of NKOTBSB, the new plus ultra of boybanddom. It will be available everywhere Tuesday, May 24th from Legacy Recordings.
With New Kids On The Block and Backstreet Boys banding together to give their fans a must-see concert experience this summer with their first-ever combined North American Tour, the release of NKOTBSB provides a tantalizing hint of the upcoming one-night-only once-in-a-lifetime Fenway Park show on June 11th.
As of right now and running through March 24th, fans of New Kids On The Block and Backstreet Boys are encouraged to vote for their favorite classic tracks from each band here. The Top 5 songs from each group, as chosen by the fans, will be included on NKOTBSB. Hardcore devotees of either band who pre-order NKOTBSB in advance of the March 24th deadline will have their names printed in the album packaging.
In addition to the fan-selected Top 5 New Kids On The Block songs and Top 5 Backstreet Boys tracks, NKOTBSB will premiere the first newly recorded songs from the combined superboyband including the sizzling first single "Don't Turn Out The Lights." It is almost too much boybanddom for one gal to handle. I said "almost."
In addition to the new NKOTBSB recordings and the fan-approved classic New Kids On The Block and Backstreet Boys tracks, NKOTBSB debuts a newly recorded mash-up of smash hits from both groups a la their electrifying first televised performance as an on-stage collective on the 2010 AMAs.
Out in time for the impending NKOTBSB national summer tour, the NKOTBSB album package includes an exclusive tour poster, personalized messages from each band member and brand-new never-before-seen photos from the ultimate boy band collaboration.
Team NKOTB or Team BSB? Which generation are you from?
