Can we be honest for a second? Even if the Backstreet Boys‘ new single, “In A World Like This,” wasn’t up to snuff (FYI, it’s totally amazing and whatever the opposite of “not up to snuff” is!), we’d still be down, because just look at this cover art!! If standing on a randomly placed water-cliff-rock structure in expertly tailored suits doesn’t scream “Backstreet’s Back,” then NOTHING IN THIS WORLD DOES. Well, maybe except for their 20-year Reunion Tour, and perhaps this panda photo, but that’s probably not appropriate for album cover art, right?
Listen to Backstreet Boys’ “In A World Like This” after the jump.
Set to a polished, highly danceable pop track, “In A World Like This” features the boys’ signature, tight five-part harmonies, paired with a surging, Top 40-friendly chorus, and uplifting lyrics: “In a world like this…/ I know we’re gonna make it/ In a time like this/ When love comes round/ I know we gonna take it.” Essentially, it’s the perfect “welcome back, bros!” song. And, as tempted as we are to make another “Backstreet’s Back” joke (there’s a limit of one per post), we’ll refrain. But, whatever, THEY ARE!
