New Kids on the Block reissuing comeback album ‘The Block’ as ‘The Block Revisited’

Austin Hargrave

Fifteen years ago — September 2, 2008 — New Kids on the Block released their first album in 14 years: The Block. Featuring Pussycat Dolls, Akon, New Edition, Ne-Yo and a just-getting-started Lady Gaga, it reached #2 on the Billboard 200.

Now, the group is reissuing the album as The Block Revisited. It features a new collaboration with members of the K-pop group SEVENTEEN, “Dirty Dancing (Dem Jointz Remix),” which is available now. Also included is the fan-favorite song “Coming Home” — the first time it’s been available in any format.

The Block Revisited will be available November 3 in various formats: CD and digital versions, plus a two-LP vinyl set in orange and blue and an Amazon-exclusive purple vinyl set.

The Block album didn’t only mark the reunion of our band — it sparked the reunion of our band with our fans! I could never over estimate how much the songs and the spirit of this album mean to all of us,” says Donnie Wahlberg in a statement. “The Block Revisited is a celebration of the magical bond that we’ve built over the last 15 years.”
