Children of the 1980s were thrown into a nostalgia-frenzy this week when New Kids On The Block, Boyz II Men and 98 Degrees announced the Package Tour, bringing to life an issue of Tiger Beat from 1995. All three bands have been working hard to re-enter the music business, with NKOTB touring with Backstreet Boys, Boyz II Men gettin’ that Old Navy money and 98 Degrees, well, Nick had another reality show about another wedding.
But it looks like fans won’t just be hearing the classic hits when they purchase a ticket for the Package Tour. New Kids On The Block debuted a new track online today and it’s…it’s really good. Like, shockingly good. Not that I didn’t heart New Kids big time back in the day, but a track that is so hard hitting and radio-friendly from a group that is best known for being big in the early 1990s isn’t a common occurrence.
Remix (I Like The) is a fast paced, high energy rock pop track that has the same layered rock sound Bruno Mars tends to favour. Really, it’s good. Check out New Kids On The Block with Remix (I Like The) below.Tweet
