The Backstreet Boys are coming back with their eighth album. It will be the first album featuring all five original members in six years since Kevin Richardson left the group in 2006. It is also their first indie album after leaving Jive. They mentioned that they will be cutting around 50 to 60 songs when they are done recording the record. In July 2012, Richardson stated in an interview that the album will be authentic and personal. They also wrote a lot on it and a lot of the songs were based on their own life experiences.
