Jordan Knight & Nick Carter Announce Collaborative Album And Tour
Nick Carter and Jordan Knight, members The Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block respectively, are teaming up to record an album and tour together, they said in an announcement on “Good Morning America" this morning.
NKOTB's Knight said,
Me and Nick have combined our talents, our super powers, and now we are a new duo, called ‘Nick & Knigh. We recorded a whole new album and are going on tour Sept. 15.
Their first ever collaborative album, “Nick & Knight,” is set to be released on Sept. 2. The duo will return to "Good Morning America" that day to perform. Their tour will begin on September 15.
“We’re almost pretty much done with the album,” Carter added. “It’s a bunch of our pop, rock, R&B and urban. It’s all mixed together to create ‘Nick & Knight.’”
The Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block have sold about 160 million albums combined around the world. After their time with their respective bands, both Carter and Knight pursued successful solo careers. In 2011, the bands toured together and made a stop at Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids.
“Just the Two of Us,” a song from the upcoming album, is available as a free download today for anyone who pre-orders the album.
