It's like it's 1996 all over again. Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys says the boy band is back in the studio recording a new album—its first since 2013, per Time. There's no word on a release date, but you'll be able to hear at least one new track by August: The band is also working on a country collaboration to appear on Florida Georgia Line's new disc out Aug. 26, Carter and Brian Littrell write on Instagram. Earlier this year, the Backstreet Boys announced a nine-show deal as a residency "test run" in Las Vegas, per Entertainment Weekly. (More Backstreet Boys stories.)
