The Backstreet Boys claim they’ve been bad this year, but their new song is very good.

The boy band’s holiday tune, “It’s Christmas Time Again,” is a bouncy pop gem that will get you dancing this season.

“We’re so proud of this new song,” Carter told AOL Music about the song. “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 will be listening to.”

Plus the song, available on iTunes, marks the return of Kevin Richardson, who quit the band in 2006. This is the first time all five members have recorded together since 2005’s Never Gone.

For fans hungry for more music, the band is promising a new album some time next year, which will mark the band’s 20th anniversary. 

Listen to “it’s Christmas Time Again” below and let us know what you think.
