AJ McLean Releases New Single and Video, “Night Visions.” Premieres with CMT & Entertainment Tonight!

AJ McLean has released his incredible new single, “Night Visions” today. The song premiered yesterday with Las Vegas’ The Bull country radio station and Entertainment Tonight and the track is already generating a ton of excitement. The video, which McLean co-directed alongside longtime friend and music video director Rene Elizondo Jr. is an epic tale of just how far we are willing to go for love, watch it HERE. Hard at work in Nashville on his first solo foray with acclaimed songwriters like Clint Lagerberg (Keith Urban/Blake Shelton/Rascal Flatts) and Brett Tyler (Maren Morris/Chris Young/Joe Nichols), AJ has been immersing himself in the sound he loves and is finally telling his own story, his way. “Night Visions” is available to stream and buy HERE!

Night Visions” is a perfect lead in to the new songs McLean is working on, with the track revealing the romantic sensibilities and storytelling behind much of his music. Backed by a slow-burning groove, the track’s dreamy guitar tones and delicate piano melodies melt into lyrics capturing intense infatuation. McLean tells Entertainment Tonight.”The premise of ‘Night Visions’ is all about love, the good and the bad. The feelings that stay even after you’ve broken up and the devastating sadness of knowing that person is still there with you in your mind and heart. It’s the inevitable flashes of the good and bad times that come along with that sadness and knowing that no matter what, you’d do anything for the person you love.

No stranger to the country world, 2017 saw AJ and the Backstreet Boys teaming up with multi-platinum selling Florida Georgia Line for the hit single “God, Your Mama, and Me,” off their Dig Your Roots album. The much buzzed about collaboration included a performance of the #1 single (as well as the Backstreet Boys’ “Everybody”) at the 2017 ACM Awardsand a joint CMT Crossroads showcasing both of the groups biggest songs, as well as a stadium tour that saw them performing to sold out crowds across the country. The Backstreet Boys and Florida Georgia Line won the 2018 CMT Award for Performance of the Year and the Backstreet Boys performed their hit single, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” live at the awards show.

There’s the AJ McLean you think you know: the member of one of the most successful groups of all time, the multi-platinum selling Backstreet Boys. A group that has become the best selling boy band in history, having sold over 140 million records, and have earned themselves a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Then there’s the real AJ McLean, the ultimate trendsetter and a raw singer/songwriter, an artist dripping with soul and bare emotion. A legend of the 90s boyband era, AJ has always been a cultural vanguard. You’ve seen him in the front row at New York Fashion Week, you’ve seen him on stage, on the small screen and even on the big screen and now you’re going to see him at his best… “I’m kind of a chameleon,” he states. It’s true: AJ has his hand in everything from fashion to acting, but it’s making his solo music that really sets him apart, and we’re so excited to finally be sharing his foray into this exciting new body of work.
