'90s kids, rejoice! The Backstreet Boys released a new single at midnight, just in time for #ThrowbackThursday. The song, titled "Don't Go Breaking My Heart," is the first new release since their 2013 album In a World Like This. According to People, it was recorded after the first leg of the group's Las Vegas residency — which they will continue later this year.

During a recent BSB Cruise to Turks and Caicos, the guys dressed like the Spice Girls, but they're authentically Backstreet in the music video for their new tune, and we wouldn't have it any other way. 


There's obviously plenty of synchronized dancing, as well as solo shots of the guys against a brightly lit backdrop. The video also features a holographic woman, and at one point the group members start vanishing into thin air. We're not sure if that's a reference to a similar effect in their "I Want It That Way" video, but we're reminiscing about it nonetheless.

"Baby, don't go breaking my heart, breaking my heart / 'Cause it's the only one I got," the group, who recently celebrated their 25th anniversary, sings on the track. We're ready to have it in our heads all day.
