Backstreet’s back, alright?

With Election Day just passed, it may feel a tad early to break out the yuletide carols. But not if you’ve been waiting six years for the Backstreet Boys to get back together! The Fab Five of the 90’s (or one of them, anyway) has released new music for the first time since 2006. (Four of them, minus Kevin Richardson, have been together since.) BSB is looking to get you in the holiday spirit with “It’s Christmas Time Again.”

And okay, we know, it's actually not Christmas time again. It's still early November. But… it’s Backstreet time again! So listen to the song after the jump.

It definitely sounds like the gang's all here again, with swoon-worthy melodies and a pop sensibility that almost makes us forgive it for being a Christmas song released at least three weeks too early.

"We're so proud of this new song," Nick Carter said of the new track. "There aren't that many original holiday songs out there ― which is so crazy to say ― and we really feel we made a timeless contribution to the season and a song our kids kids will be listening to. Plus, we have our boy Kevin back in the studio with us. This is a really exciting time."

BSB is planning a new album for 2013.
