Nick Carter Discusses New Backstreet Boys Album

(Radio.com) This week the Backstreet Boys released their eighth studio album, In a World Like This. The first album on their own record label, K-BAHN, it's also the first to feature Kevin Richardson, who made his departure after 2005′s Never Gone.

Radio.com spoke with Nick Carter this week, and he filled us in on what the songwriting process was like for the band (they wrote eight of the 12 tracks on the new LP), his favorite Backstreet Boys' dance move, and how he deals with overzealous fans.

Q: You all had a hand in the songwriting process this time around. Can you give some insight to what those songwriting sessions were like? A: The songwriting has honestly been one of the most fun processes in this entire project. Now we're able to write things that we care about in the music. We're able to put us in the music. Put our life experiences and everything in there. When we perform them on stage we can sing about them and I think that that's important. Over the years we have been able to work with some really great writers; learning from all these other amazing writers and producers. You name the producer, we worked with them. This time we applied our experiences to the record.

Q: You've said this is a very personal album. Are you ever afraid to reveal too much in a song? A: When you're writing an album or writing a song you need to put your heart on the table. You need to put your heart and your pen to the paper because that's what makes an emotional song. That's something that people relate to. We didn't want to write songs anymore that were just like a boy band recording songs from other producers and writers. We wanted to be able to feel these songs. That's how the best songs come out. Any songs out there in the world, it's all emotional, it's feeling.
