In celebration of the season, Backstreet Boys will perform their original holiday song “It’s Christmas Time Again” on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon this Wednesday, December 19. The Roots will accompany BSB on this new single Entertainment Weekly calls an “infectiously sweet track,” along with an exclusive online performance of a fan-favorite.


“It’s Christmas Time Again,” the first song featuring Kevin Richardson since his return to the group, is “vintage BSB with a holiday spin” says The Huffington Post, “a festive tune that’s just poppy enough to dance to.” MTV raves the track “is all about the happiness that comes with the holiday season. Full of acoustic guitar, orchestral strings and a toe-tapping beat.”


Watch & listen to the track here: 


“We’re big fans of Jimmy and The Roots,” says AJ McLean. “This is a great way to celebrate the holiday and end an awesome year. I can’t wait for 2013!”


The reunion of all five guys comes in time for the Backstreet Boys’ 20th anniversary this spring, which they’ll celebrate with a new album, star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, world tour and much more. Stay tuned for more news!
