Christmas has come early for your inner 13-year-old!
In anticipation of the holidays, the Backstreet Boys have released a new Christmas song, and, if you’re anything like yours truly, the tune will fill you with the cheer that you and Nordstroms normally reserve until after Thanksgiving. But once you listen to the infectiously sweet track, titled “It’s Christmas Time Again,” we think you’ll have no complaints about a little premature Christmasfication.
Penned in part by BSBers Nick Carter and Howie Dorough, the tune — which is the band’s first new release since becoming whole again — follows every rule of Backstreet pop song-making. There’s a catchy tune, a little boy band hook (la-ta, la-ta, da-da, ta), a five-part harmony (as it should be), and lyrics in which they never call us fat.
Take a listen and tell us Mixers: New classic?
