[ Donnie Wahlberg ] NKOTB Star On Embracing Their ‘Boy-Bandness,’ Losing a Sister and TV Success

Donnie Wahlberg’s been making love.

The 43-year-old singer and actor is returning to his pop star past with New Kids on the Block’s just-released record 10 and tells AOL Music that making the album was a labor of love unlike any other in the group’s three-decade span.

“When we were young we were all about dating girls and having fun,” he says. “It’s like we’ve stopped having sex and started making love. That’s where we’re at as a group now — this is what we do, we love what we do and we’re in love with what we do… so it makes making love all the more special!

“I enjoy every aspect more now than as a kid — performing, recording, touring. I feel more at ease and confident, which is saying a lot because it’s a young man’s game.”

While they’re no longer kids, Wahlberg says the band have finally embraced their “boy-bandness,” returning to their roots and having more fun recording 10 than 2008’s reunion record The Block.

Still, learning to appreciate what they have hasn’t been easy. Following the mind-blowing success which saw them dominate the late-’80s/ early-’90s pop scene — much like One Direction does today — the Boston quintet were left directionless in their early 20s and stumped about their futures, having already experienced a lifetime’s worth of ups and downs.

“It’s like you’re on a really fast train and assume it’ll keep going but one day it stops,” says Wahlberg. “If you’re not prepared, it’s difficult. The public has an opinion of who you are and may never accept you as anything else.

“It may not seem a big deal, but when you’re twentysomething and been through one of the most exhilarating rides of most people’s lifetimes, you think it’s forever. So being faced with, ‘What will I do for the next 70 years?’ is daunting because it’s not easy to be on the cover of every magazine, then take a job at McDonalds.

[ New Kids on the Block ] Germany – Antenne 1 Album der Woche: “10”

“Lady’s, we’re coming for you!” Aus den jungen, kreischenden Mädels von damals sind jung gebliebene, kreischende Frauen geworden. Und aus den fünf coolen Typen von damals sind fünf gestandene Männer geworden. Manchmal ist es doch ganz schön erschreckend, wie die Zeit vergeht…

1988 waren sie es,…

… die den Mädels den Kopf verdrehten. Als Mitbegründer der Boygroup- Ära waren die Jungs von New Kids On The Block die erste große Liebe vieler junger Damen. Und dieses Jahr steht wir alle vor einem großen Wiedersehen: Unsere Jungendliebe ist endlich wieder da!

Gut, hier waren NKOTB, wie sie liebevoll genannt werden, eigentlich schon 2011. 14 Jahre nach der großen Trennung, bei der viele Herzen gebrochen wurden, gingen die Jungs zusammen mit den Backstreet Boys auf große Welttournee und performten ihre alten Hits. Mitglied Donnie Wahlberg begründete das gemeinsame Projekt damals so:

„Ich sehe die Reunion als Widergutmachung, aber nicht für uns, sondern für unsere Fans. Am wichtigsten ist, dass sie zufrieden sind, was sie heute bekommen. Sie sollen wissen, dass sie damals ihr Herz an die richtigen verloren haben und es sich für sie gelohnt hat, auf das Konzert zu warten.“

Das neue Album: „10“

Nachdem sich die „Mutter“ aller Boygroups 2011 bei ihren Fans um Wiedergutmachung gebeten hat, wollen die Jungs aus Boston dieses Jahr wieder an die alten Erfolge anknüpfen. Da wurden Songs geschrieben, aufgenommen und produziert- und jetzt ist es endlich soweit: Das neue Album „10“ ist fertig! Wie kaum eine andere Band schafften New Kids On The Block den Sprung von den 90er Hochzeiten der Boygroup- Musik zu der heutigen Zeit, in der eigentlich eher Dancebeats dominieren. Bestes Beispiel ist da der Titel „Take My Breath Away“, eine Ballade, die in Refrain plötzlich zum Dancetitel wird. Und auch die aktuelle Single „Remix (I Like It) ist durchaus tanzbar. „10“ ist nicht nur für die Fans von damals ein muss im CD- Schrank- Jungs, die Wiedergutmachung ist euch definitiv gelungen!

[ New Kids on the Block ] Win Us Over With Wine At First Live Acoustic Set

“Here’s your tagline, we’re drunk!” New Kids On The Block‘s Joey McIntyre ad-libbed toward the end of the group’s classic “Hangin’ Tough.” Why? Because amazing things happened when NKOTB performed their first ever acoustic set at Live In The Vineyard last weekend.

The fab five worked the crowd with so much energy, though, you’d think they had more than just a keyboard and guitar accompaniment backing them for their seven-song set that mixed old favorites like “Step By Step” and their latest single “Remix (I Like The).” They even showed off some vintage choreography. Still holds up.

Right now the guys are promoting their latest studio album 10 and this summer’s The Package Tour with Boyz II Men and 98 Degrees. With what’s bound to be such the adrenaline-pumping madness fans have come to expect from NKOTB on the horizon, it was refreshing to see them in a stripped down atmosphere.
