Backstreet's back, alright!

The boys, including Kevin, are preparing to release their upcoming eighth studio album, In a World Like This, July 30th. "Breathe", a slow pop ballad from the new album, was exclusively released this week on Billboard.

Howie Dorough told Billboard that "Breathe," written in London with producer/writer Martin Terefewas, was inspired by Ryan Gosling movie, Drive:

"A.J. [McLean] was watching the movie 'Drive,' and the music kind of has that dark, mysterious feel to it. He came to me, and I had just recently seen that movie, and I loved the idea. He started off with the melody for the chorus, and then I came to him and started putting feeling into the words… It's a great song. It's one of those songs that's just a love song about that one person that you meet and you can't breathe around them."

The Backstreet Boys will begin their headlining tour August 2nd in Chicago. Click here for list of full tour dates.
