Backstreet Boys Ready Solo Discs, Work on Sixth Album

July 24, 2008 4:06 PM ET

Is there an emptiness in your life that only more Backstreet Boys music can fill? Great news! The Backstreet Boys are working on their sixth album. The now-quartet recently hit up the studio while touring Europe, and plan to work on some more new material when their U.S. tour wraps in early September. Backstreeter Howie Dorough even says the group might work with pop producer extraordinaire Max Martin, who teamed with the Boys on their hits "I Want It That Way" and "Show Me the Meaning of Being Lonely." But wait, there's more: Both Dorough and A.J. McLean are nearly finished working on their respective solo albums. Release dates for those solo discs have not been announced yet.

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
