While performing at a concert in London, The Backstreet Boys officially announced that former member Kevin Richardson would be rejoining the group to work on the the Boys’ ninth album. To help spread the announcement virally online, Backstreet then took to Twitter to confirm their announcement to the rest of the world. “Now everything is back to normal … Welcome back @kevinrichardson.”
Kevin did his part to spread the the announcment with an understandable amount of excitment via Twitter as well, “Hello beau-ti-ful people. Yes, the cat is OFFICIALLY out of the bag. It’s on and crackin!”
Richardson’s last album as a Backstreet Boy was 2005’s Never Gone. He originally left The Backstreet Boys in 2006. Recording of their yet to be titled new album is set for this July.
