Joey McIntyre of New Kids on the Block says he’ll release a new solo single on October 23. About the song, “Own This Town,” he said, “To me it’s about taking your shot, swinging for the fences, going for it.
McIntyre wrote the song years ago and says it takes on a new meaning now, he explained, “The idea of never giving up, reflecting on where you are, what you’ve done, what’s left to do… it’s hopeful. I think the words resonate more now and I hope people can find some inspiration when they hear it.”
New Kids on the Block returned from a 14-year hiatus in 2008 with several top 10 hits, but this will mark McIntyre’s first solo release since his 2011 holiday project, Come Home for Christmas.
