Backstreet Boy Howie Dorough's new song 'Lie To Me': Hear it here -- EXCLUSIVE


The Backstreet Boys had a big summer touring with New Kids on the Block, but behind the scenes of the bands’ epic collaboration, BSB’s Howie Dorough was prepping the release of his new solo album, Back to Me, out Nov. 15.

But if you can’t wait that long,’s got your first peek at the song “Lie To Me,” a slower track that closely resembles some of Backstreet’s more classic pop ballads. “At the time [I was putting the album together],” Dorough tells EW, “I was really in this positive place in life, had lots of energy, between Backstreet-New Kids and my family. So a lot of the album is dance and up-tempo [music]. But there’s definitely also the crooner ballads that people would know me for.

“For me, it felt right to go in this direction rather to go in a direction that I just wasn’t at,” he continues, “I think sometimes when you try to do that, you don’t give fans your best. Even if you shock them a little bit, at least you’re feeling the music and lyrics and able to put 100 percent into it.” Click below for the new track.

Verdict fans? I’m presently too excited to critique because Dorough also mentioned plans for the Backstreet to head back into the studio this fall. Now that’s something to dance about.
