Backstreet Boys to reunite with Kevin Richardson for new album

Backstreet Boys are set to welcome fifth member Kevin Richardson back into the fold as they look ahead to making a new album.

The Press Association reports that the band - who are currently Brian Littrell, Nick Carter, A.J. McLean and Howie Dorough - will reunite with Richardson in the summer.

They will head to London to record a new album, in what will be their eighth studio release.

Richardson left the band in 2006, some ten years after the group released their debut self-titled album.

His new bandmate A.J. McLean meanwhile has announced that he is set to become a father with his wife Rochelle Deanna Karidis. He is reported to have said:

"I just wanted to say thank you guys for all your love and support. We recently got married - I was the most recent Backstreet Boy to take the plunge. Because we love you all so much, we wanted to share with you - for the first time - something very special. We're having a baby!"
