Two members of the NKOTBSB tribe spilled the beans on making music that is bound to thrill 90s kids everywhere.
Backstreet Boys’ Nick Carter and New Kids on the Block’s Jordan Knight announced they will record an album and go on tour together. The duo revealed the collaboration on Good Morning America and appeared on the Wendy Williams show Wednesday to talk about combining their boy band powers.
“We hit it off a long time ago, actually,” Knight said. “We worked in the studio before, we always knew we would be collaborating on music and we reunited when we did the NKOTBSB tour. We always talked about doing a tour together. We thought, I should do a solo album and he would do a solo album and we’d go on tour. But then we came to think as like, ‘we should do something together and mixing it up and doing something new.”
The duo are in the recording studio now and expect to be finished with their album on Sept. 2. After that, they will be embarking on a national tour starting Sept. 15. Perez Hilton released a recording from their upcoming album titled “titled “Nick & Knight,” which you can listen to here.
The interview quickly got sloppy when Wendy Williams showed a picture of former N’SYNC member Joey Fatone and misidentified him as a member of the Backstreet Boys. Williams also asked Knight and Carter to respond to Fatone’s claims that they’re only doing music together for the money, something that Carter clarified.
“He’s got a really dry sense of humor,” Carter said of Fatone. “That’s who he is. He’s a funny guy. So we were great afterwards, we’re cool.”
Knight and Carter also dished about Carter’s low key wedding, Jenny McCarthy‘s introduction to the NKTOB family and the struggles of juggling tour duties and fatherhood.
