News: New Kids On The Block Announce New Album 'Still Kids' @NKOTB

Multi-platinum pop icons New Kids On The Block have announced a brand new album, Still Kids – out May 17 via BMG. Still Kids marks the first full-length studio album from the New Kids in 11 years. Pre-save the album HERE and find the full tracklist below. Preorder is available now including Deluxe CD with exclusive photos and interview, vinyl exclusives, and a “Still Kids” themed Deluxe CD box set – click HERE to view the options.

The album announcement comes alongside the release of their new lead single “Kids,” available now on all platforms (Listen HERE). The track was written and produced by David Stewart, (BTS, Jonas Brothers, Jack Harlow, Shania Twain and more) and Luke Batt (Katie Melua).

New Kids On The Block will make the world premiere performance of “Kids” on The Kelly Clarkson Show, this Friday, March 8th, as a part of the show’s NKOTB episode takeover.

On the all new album, members Jonathan Knight, Jordan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg and Danny Wood channel the New Kids’ beginnings, even as it pushes them into new territory as songwriters and as a band. The album features 14 new tracks including the lead single, “Kids,” and is full of pop anthems, dance tracks, love songs, and grooves that will become fast favorites for the Blockheads.

“It’s the most mature album we’ve ever made,” says Donnie Wahlberg, who co-wrote seven of the tracks on Still Kids with longtime collaborator Lars Halvor Jensen and his production company DEEKAY Music. “Yet it’s the most fun and most comfortable album we’ve ever made.” Wahlberg is also credited as creative director on the album.

Joey McIntyre – who co-wrote another six tracks with songwriter and producer Sean Thomas—echoes the sentiment: “It says a lot about any band to make a record that has energy and passion and lightness and fun and depth – after almost 40 years together? It’s crazy.”

“This album, more than any other, is bringing the New Kids and the fans full circle,” Wahlberg concludes. “It’s about hope and possibilities and being ourselves.”

New Kids On The Block will celebrate the new album and classic hits with Blockheads across America on their upcoming Magic Summer 2024 US Tour, kicking off on June 14, with special guests Paula Abdul and DJ Jazzy Jeff. Tickets are on-sale now at ticketmaster.com. Reimagining the smash 1990 tour of the same name, NKOTB are so excited to bring back the magic and relive it with their fans.
