Backstreet Boys Plan New LP For October; Burger King To Issue Promo CD, Video

As the Backstreet Boys gear up for the launch of next month's North American tour to support its newest release, "Millennium," the band is already setting its sights on a fall outing to promote its next album, tentatively due out in October.

The reigning Orlando boy band will team up with Burger King for an exclusive promotional tie-in with the Backstreet Boys' forthcoming new album and fall tour. As part of the deal, the band will offer an exclusive video and CD that will only be available for sale at Burger King restaurants in August and September.

The CD will feature an as-yet-undetermined advance single from the new album, as well as five previously recorded but never-before released live songs taken from the Backstreet Boys' previous tours. The promotional video will contain backstage footage of the Backstreet Boys in action and interviews with all of the members of the group.

Burger King has also signed on to serve as the title sponsor for the Backstreet

Boys fall outing.

The Backstreet Boys, who have been nominated for four Grammy Awards (with their hit "I Want It That Way" receiving an additional songwriting nod), will start a North American tour with a two-night stand on February 11 and 12 at the Bryce Jordan Center in State College, Pennsylvania.
