Backstreet Boys are back with a new song, alright!
Last night (January 18) marked the midnight premiere of the lyric video for the boy band's latest single "Breathe." The ballad, a bluesy a capella project laden with numbing, pitch-perfect harmonies, is a testament that the members — Brian Littrell, AJ McLean, Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson, and Howie Dorough — possess a timeless talent.
Part doo-wop, part love letter, "Breathe" expresses the pangs and sorrows of lost love through a string of heartfelt confessions. "Sand keeps slipping right through my hands / Days all feel the same / Still numb from you / First step off of this plane, I knew / I suffocate without you," the group sings in the opening verse before pouring into a pleading chorus.
