The Backstreet Boys have premiered the official music video for their latest single In A World Like This.
The title track from the group’s upcoming eighth studio album was released to iTunes last month and was produced by Max Martin and Kristian Lundin who also co-wrote the song with Savan Kotecha.
The video received its premiere on Good Morning America earlier today where AJ McLean explained the thought behind the visual which depicts three separate couples watching the historic moments of the 1969 moon landing, 9/11 and the legalisation of gay marriage:
“BSB wants to show our support for the LGBT community and we believe that two people of the same sex should have the right to get married. The concept of the video is based on the song, which tells a story of how love conquers all and ‘in a world like this’ that we live in, with all the craziness and negative energy that can go around, with real love you can overcome anything.”
The album In A World Like This, the group’s first since leaving Jive Records, will be released in the UK on 29 July.
