2013 - Max Martin Working With Backstreet Boys!
« on: July 18, 2012, 03:21:41 AM »
New album for their 20th anniversary in April.

I was really hoping to post this in the Max Martin forum, but no mention of him or kristian or redone :(

I'm not terribly familiar with Martin Terefe, but he's from Sweden.

Cool, imagine that is going to be the first single. That would be amazing.

Do you have a way to filter the ASCAP list in order to get the most recent tracks?
And I liked it..

Yeah they're probably only working on a couple of tracks for Terefe. But wow, I can't wait to hear "The Rain"... wooo! Hopefully they're doing more than one track with Max this time. I loved "Bigger" so much, but it felt out of place on the last album with the random mix of other producers. Maybe if they'd kept the Kristian and Rami tracks it would've worked better. I'm hoping the renewed popularity in boyband pop will encourage them to do what they do best.

The Rain is a very old song, it was either for Millennium or Black and Blue. It was recently listed because I think they might have wanted to re-record the song but Brian might use it in the future.

Their in the studios in London with Martin Terefe, another Swedish producer/song-writer whose worked with Craig David, Jason Mraz, and Train. They will be in London till the first week of August. The closest cheiron writers would probably be Rami/Carl since their the only ones on a good relation with them but I doubt they wanna be known as the group who works with One Direction's producers.

Oh, well that sucks then. :( Still, I would like to hear it, even as a demo.

Really? Did something happen involving Max etc? I know there was all that rumoured drama with the last album where Rami and Kristian's work was apparently removed on Max's request... I so highly doubt that's true though.

Khan, are you sure that the rain is an old song? I always look ascap.com and I had never seen before. It seems strange.... ::)

Rami/Kristian songs weren't removed per Max's request but on other albums with others artists he's done it with other Cheiron guys. It was more like a Jive screwed Rami and Kristian when they asked them to rush the songs to be placed on the album and they missed the cut.

If BSB worked with Max again it wouldn't be the same. He really recycles way too much and the guys got a shit end of his creativity stick with Bigger a couple years back. Besides why would you want to work with someone everyone's working with, you don't really stand out that way. But I do think if Carl and Rami are in London they will somehow work with the guys IF the guys want to.

In regards to The Rain, fans have asked Brian a lot about the song and in recent years he said he plans on putting it out in the future hopefully.

Interesting story!
Can you reveal which artist was it where songs were removed?

So Max and Rami do not have a good relationship anymore actually? That would all make sense.


But I believe that Max, Andreas and Shellback could do some nice tracks for BSB.

And I liked it..

Max is a great guy and is smart but there's a reason why his fellow Cheiron members don't work with him or like to work with an artist that Max is working with on a specific album. I'll leave it at that.

Anyone can do nice tracks for BSB since their mentors thrived success off of them but its actually smart for BSB to move on and try something different. They should be leaders not followers.

Interesting Khan, but I would still love Max to work with BSB, I loved Bigger, but Max is probably too big now to work with BSB.

I've read this elsewhere as well, but I still don't get why Max would want to do it... what's the advantage? Anything you could elaborate on? :)

He really recycles way too much and the guys got a shit end of his creativity stick with Bigger a couple years back.

There seems to be a down the middle divide of people who either love or hate "Bigger", I'm guessing it's down to the lyrics, which are even self aware of "how silly it sounds". But that's the only thing I could ever find fault with. I think the song overall is as good as any other track Max has done for them in the past. Jive and the guys can't have been too disappointed with it either, they performed it quite often and released it as the second single, albeit with terrible promotion.
