New Kids On The Block Claim New Album Has 'More Mature Vibe'

American boyband New Kids on the Block (aka NKOTB) have spoken out about their forthcoming new album ‘10’ - saying it’s a much more ‘mature’ effort than their some of their older material.

Produced by longtime production partners DK, the album is the seventh of their career, and follows their last record ‘The Block’, which hit #2 in the US back in 2008. Set for a release on April 2nd, the group have opened up about what fans can expect.

“A lot of pop music nowadays is centred to a younger audience or written for younger artists, but for a group who are all in our 40s, you want to be singing about stuff that resonates with you,” Joey McIntyre told Digital Spy. “I think this music does. Our last album The Block was a little more urban and club-driven, whereas this has a more mature vibe to it.”

He continued: “It's speaking to life a bit more. Production-wise it definitely has a sound we haven't explored before, which is that kind of Europop thing. It's a sound we haven't really spent time in before, but it fits who we are as a performing group.”

The band have already lined-up their US tour - which runs through the summer - and we expect a UK tour announcement can’t be too far away. Stay with Stereoboard if you want to stay up-to-date on NKOTB - we’ll let you know if any dates surface!
