It's that time of the year, folks: artists are releasing new singles left and right.

First, we were tortured by treated to Britney Spears and the song "Gimme More."

Return of the Backstreet Boys

Next, it was American Idol champion Jordin Sparks and the ballad "Tattoo."

Now, those lovable Backstreet Boys are back with "Inconsolable."

Let us know what you think of this new tune:

The Spice Girls will be touring again.

The Backstreet Boys are back.

What's next, Lauren Conrad and Jason Wahler date again?

For those of us that never dreamed The Backstreet Boys would reunite, you just never know. But these fellas are making one thing clear:

They're okay with the fact that Kevin Richardson told them during a conference call last year that he was sitting out their sixth album, hitting stores October 30. Nick Carter says there was "kind of a shock at first," but:

"Everyone understood. There were no hard feelings and that's just the way it needs to be. We've been through a lot in 14 years together, and there's no need to get angry or overly emotional."

As People magazine reports, the group â€" Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell and AJ McClean â€" still talk to Richardson, whose wife Kristin gave birth to son Mason in July.

Dorough sais: "I just saw Kevin a couple days ago. He's got a glow that is unbelievable, and I'm happy for him. And he's happy for us as well â€" he's not bitter. He's totally like, 'I want you guys to do your thing and not have weirdness.'"

It's a good thing they weren't hanging out with Matt Encinias during a recent night in that case. Talk about weirdness!

The Backstreet Boys are back! The Backstreet Boys are back!

The as-yet untitled new album features the usual Backstreet Boys fare that fans expect, says Carter: "Dance tracks, poppy rock songs, really beautiful ballads and R&B vocals. We're being what we are and have been for years. There are no catches. We just want to cater to the fans."

With that in mind, Carter also shed 40 pounds, as he tries to stay even with young hunks such as Zac Efron in the hearts of said fans.

Carter says he put the weight on because he was depressed. "With my show The House of Carters, it was a shock to me to realize what my family had gone through. After so many years of dysfunction and my parents finally getting divorced and everybody being lost and me being the oldest, there was a lot of stress, a lot of pressure."

Fortunately, Nick didn't let brother Aaron Carter ruin his image too much. The newly thin singer just can't wait to bag his first groupie now when the band goes on tour again.

And we know what you're thinking: There are still any Backstreet Boys?

So they tell us. Now, however, everyone's second favorite boy band is bidding farewell to the oldest member of its band.


"After 13 years of what can only be described as a dream come true, I have decided that it is time to leave the Backstreet Boys. It was a very tough decision for me but one that was necessary in order to move on with the next chapter of my life," said Richardson, 34, adding that he's leaving to pursue other interests.

The remaining members â€" A.J. McLean, Nick Carter, Howie Dorough and Brian Littrell â€" said they had no plans to replace Richardson.

"The door will always be open for him to return to the Backstreet Boys. We wish him the all the best in his future endeavors," they said on the band's Web site.

The group took a hiatus in 2001 after McLean's highly publicized entry into rehab forced the band to postpone their "Black & Blue" tour. They reunited to release the album Never Gone in 2005. It was never really heard.

The band plans to return to the studio this weekend to begin work on their next album. Meanwhile, Richardson will try to become the next Justin Timberlake. And we'll try to contain our laughter.
