December 6, 2004
This holiday season is especially exciting for
all of us. We?re home with our families now but we know that 2005 is going to bring many great opportunities for the group.
Thanksgiving was especially nice this year. We weren?t together but we made sure to get in touch with each other to send our
holiday wishes. Nick and Kevin spent Thanksgiving in LA, Howie was in Orlando, AJ was in Vegas and Brian was in Kentucky.
AJ and Nick had a great time in Rome for the MTV European Music Awards. The trip was short but their schedule was
full. On Wednesday, soon after they arrived, they did TRL Italy. The studio overlooked downtown Rome and there were lots of
Backstreet fans out to show their support. After that they did a TRL UK interview, then they were off to do 40 minutes of
Italian press at a nearby hotel. Soon after that, they went shopping for about an hour, then it was on to dinner with some
people from our label followed by a Fendi party that night. The next day brought about more press and of course the awards
show. They presented the Black Eyed Peas with the Best Pop award.
This year has really gone by fast. We?ve been working
on our new album for all of 2004 and right now we are more then ready to see it in stores. The album is great and we think
that it shows a lot of growth from past albums. We are looking at a March release date and we?re keeping our fingers crossed
that it doesn?t change. It really is amazing how many details go into making an album. Even the smallest thing can push
a release date back.
Our single should be picked soon. We?ve narrowed our selection down to a few different songs
and we?re trying to come to a mutual agreement on which of the choices to release first. Right now we are looking at a late
January release for the first single. As soon as we nail down an exact release date we?ll be sure to let you know so you
can listen for it and request it on the radio.
That?s it for now. We want to wish all of you a happy and safe holiday
season filled with countless blessings and wonderful memories!
