With their first single out in nearly five years, a hit Las Vegas residency, a tenth studio album on the way, plus an upcoming world tour, the Backstreet Boys are stronger than ever.

Last week, the “Larger Than Life” hitmakers, who recently celebrated their 25th anniversary, released their new single “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” — and fans can’t stop raving about it.

“It sounds like something that we would do,” band member Brian Littrell, 43, tells PEOPLE exclusively about the single. “It sounds like Backstreet Boys. We’re not trying to be anything that we’re not. We’re just trying to be what we are now.”

“We run a democratic way of doing business where we all vote on things and we kind of just knew,” he adds about the process. “When we all heard the song, this is one of those moments where you have five guys that hear the same thing and they all agree that it’s a smash. It’s been a long time that we’ve been in this business, so you kind of just know what you can pull off.”

Currently working on BSB’s upcoming album — which will have “a little bit of edge to it” — Littrell says their fans have matured over the years but remain just as passionate.

Let’s face it: The Backstreet Boys never really left, and to prove it they just dropped a new single titled “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart,” which will be followed by a jam-packed year. Not only will the Boys return to their Vegas residency for more dates, but considering that 2018 marks their 25th year together, they’ll also be dropping a new album … or two.

EW talked to band members Brian Littrell and AJ McLean about what to expect from BSB in 2018 and beyond.

The new single

“Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” was released Thursday.

LITTRELL: We’ve recorded maybe 10 or 12 songs and this one just hit. It kind of screams Backstreet Boys.

MCLEAN: To me it sounds like if you were to mash-up The Weeknd with the Bee Gees. It’s reminiscent of old-school Backstreet Boys, like Millenium days, with a more modern twist to it. It’s a feel-good record.

The new album

The band’s upcoming 10th studio album is expected in the fall.

MCLEAN: The album is slowly starting to take shape. There’s been songs that are pop-country, songs that are straight urban R&B, songs like “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart,” which is almost borderline EDM. We’re fans of all walks of music and that’s what you’re going to hear on this album.

LITTRELL: That was a great answer, AJ. I’m not even going to attempt that one.

Don’t go breaking Howie Dorough’s heart!

Nearly five years since their last album, In a World Like This, the Backstreet Boys have dropped their catchy new single, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart,” and to mark the long-awaited release, Dorough gets personal with ET about his earliest experience with heartbreak.

“I unfortunately remember it really well,” Dorough says during dance rehearsals for the band’s upcoming appearances. “I was 21 and dating my singing partner right as the group was starting to take off and it was tough on her knowing I was going to be gone a lot and there would be a bunch of ladies around. Out of fairness to her, we separated and it broke my heart.”

“It was the first time I felt what it was like to have that weird feeling in your stomach and those thoughts in your head that make you crazy … when you just can’t let go of that thought of somebody. It makes you want to cry and pour your heart out!” he adds.

While Dorough, 44, got through his sorrow and eventually found love with his gorgeous wife of 10 years, Leigh, the theme remains the center of countless pop songs, including many in the boy band’s 25-year catalog, which features hits like “Shape of My Heart,” “I’ll Never Break Your Heart,” “Back to Your Heart” and “Quit Playing Games (With My Heart).”

In the case of “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart,” the track was written by Los Angeles singer-songwriter Wrabel, who has toured with Gavin DeGraw and Andy Grammer, and Dorough says the song simply had the “hit factor” when it came to deciding on a single.

Backstreet’s back alright!

The Backstreet Boys released their new single, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart,” at midnight Thursday, marking their first song debut since “Show ‘Em (What You’re Made Of)” off their 2013 album, In a World Like This.

“Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” — written by Stephen Wrabel and produced by Stuart Crichton and Jamie Hartman — was recorded immediately after the first leg of the band’s successful 26-show Las Vegas residency, Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life, which will kick off again with an additional 21 shows in July until November.

Nick Carter, Brian Littrell, Kevin Richardson, A.J. McLean and Howie Dorough had been teasing the song’s release throughout the week and celebrating with a three-day social media countdown until the premiere.

And fans of the boyband turned manband will not be disappointed as the group also dropped the single’s video in which the quintet shows off some impressive interpretive and synchronized dance moves that harked back to their heyday.

The boys dance with a light show as their backdrop while McLean does his best to serenade what appears to be a hologram of a very attractive woman.

The new single release comes nearly a month after the Backstreet Boys celebrated their 25th anniversary. And they’re still going strong.

Their music was given a country-fied remix following a series of collaborations with Florida Georgia Line including the No. 1 hit “God, Your Mama and Me.”

“I want to create new memories. We’ve been singing the same songs for almost 25 years,” Littrell recently told PEOPLE. “It’s not that we’re not excited to sing our old hits, but we want to grow, too. We don’t want to be stuck in what was. We want to continue to grow with our fans.”

Brian Littrell was sitting in a high school history class in Kentucky when he got pulled out to take a life-changing call from his cousin, Kevin Richardson. Late music mogul Lou Pearlman was forming a boy band in Orlando, Florida, and a spot had just opened up. The following day — April 20, 1993 — 18-year-old Littrell set off on an adventure of a lifetime. “I’ll never forget that day I met Brian,” says Denise Solis, AJ McLean’s mother. “He had never stepped out of Kentucky, and he got picked up by a limo and dropped to the airport, then flew to meet us. I still remember his wide-eyed, puppy dog look. He was like a deer in the headlights when he got out of the limo, just so enthralled with everything. But probably also thinking, What have I got myself into?”

After sweating it out for endless hours in an Orlando warehouse, Littrell, along with Richardson, McLean, Howie Dorough and Nick Carter, headed to Europe, where they become a musical phenomenon. But it wasn’t until a Montreal radio programmer gave “We’ve Got It Goin’ On” a whirl that the group’s popularity started spilling into North America. Before long, the guys were on the path to becoming the best-selling boy band of all time, selling more than 130 million records worldwide, covering Rolling Stone, delivering the dance anthem “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)” and topping the charts with their diamond-certified 1999 record, Millennium, and its GRAMMY-nominated hit “I Want It That Way.” While other boy bands came and went, the pop powerhouse rode out everything from lawsuits and loss to alcoholism and health scares.

However, in 2013, as they received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the accomplishment marked the beginning of a resurgence. The group released In a World Like This shortly afterward, and the record — which marked Richardson’s return to the group after he left in 2006 — reached the top 5 of the Billboard Top 100 and spawned a tour, which was extended multiple times due to overwhelming demand. The five then pulled off an MTV Movie Award-winning cameo in Seth Rogen’s This Is the End, performed for former president Barack Obama, released their 2015 documentary, Show ‘Em What You’re Made Of, and topped the country charts with their Florida Georgia Line collaborative track, “God, Your Mama, and Me.” And to the delight of the “Backstreet Army,” they’re now preparing to drop the first single from their 10th studio album and continuing their nostalgia-fueled Larger Than Life residency at Planet Hollywood’s Zappos Theater, where they broke the record for fastest-selling residency in Las Vegas and hosted the biggest audience in the history of Sin City’s headlining residencies.

As they mark their milestone 25th anniversary on April 20, ET looks back at the Backstreet Boys’ career through the eyes of some of their greatest friends, collaborators, songwriters, fans and others who have played a part in Richardson, Dorough, Littrell, McLean and Carter’s journey.

The backstreet Boys shared with The Knot exclusive pictures along with a sweet memory about their wedding day (except Brian). Heres the pictures from Leighanne & Brian’s fairytale wedding… ❤

It seems like they’re still meant to be. Nearly 25 years ago, a talented group of five singers banded together in Orlando, Florida, and dubbed themselves the Backstreet Boys. The group went on to enjoy international acclaim and success, releasing chart-topping ballads like “As Long As You Love Me,” “I Want It That Way,” and “Incomplete” for their throngs of adoring fans to play continuously on repeat. And while they sang about love, the actual act of finding love in their personal lives took time.

Now, back and ready to once again sweep devoted fans off their feet, the Backstreet Boys look back on the tender moments from their wedding days. Read what Kevin, A.J., Howie, and Nick tell The Knot in a new, exclusive below.

After 24 years on the road together, the Backstreet Boys are most assuredly still larger than life, and now they have the residency to prove it.

On the opening night of their 26-show stint at Planet Hollywood’s AXIS auditorium in Las Vegas, the quintet (Nick Carter, Brian Littrell, Kevin Richardson, A. J. McLean and Howie Dorough) powered through an energetic setlist of 20 fan favorites, replete with costume changes, backup dancers and pyrotechnics worthy of an arena tour.

Unlike some other Vegas residencies we could name, the band weren’t content to lip-sync through their hits, belting their signature tunes live and still managing to pull off those chair-swinging “As Long As You Love Me” dance moves like it was 1997 again.

The group kicked things off, fittingly, with “Larger Than Life,” with all five members descending from the ceiling in rotating boxes equipped with strobing spotlights, each dressed in futuristic all-white ensembles reminiscent of their “Millennium” album cover.
