It's the most wonderful time of the year! Almost.

Now that Christmas music is surely making its way into your CD players and iTunes playlists, musicians all around are slowly releasing their holiday tracks. And now, it's the Backstreet Boys' turn to make the world a little merrier.

The band has released their single 'It's Christmas Time Again,' and it's the perfect way to ring in the season. Not to mention, it's the first single to be released featuring Kevin Richardson, who took a hiatus from the band a few years ago.

"We're so proud of this new song," said Nick Carter to AOL Music. "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 kids will be listening to. Plus, we have our boy Kevin back in the studio with us. This is a really exciting time."

"I've been checking my list twice / Got plans to give you your gift tonight / Oh oh, oh oh / Wake up under a lit tree / What a wish that came true, you're here with me / Oh oh, oh oh," sings BSB on the verse, before beginning the contagious chorus: "And when the snow is faling down, down, down / You'll know that Santa's back in town, town, town / That's when it's Christmas time again."

The upbeat holiday song is definitely a toe-tapping and catchy release, complete with handbells and echoed lyrics that give the track a warm and cozy feeling.
