Backstreet's Back is an album by the Backstreet Boys released internationally in 1997, with the exception of United States. It was a follow-up to their successful self-titled international debut. Some songs from this album and the debut album were compiled into a second self-titled album released only in the US.

There were a few differences between the versions of songs released on this album and the American album.[citation needed] The album also contained the same enhanced section as the American release. The first track recorded for the album was a cover of "Set Adrift on Memory Bliss", which was recorded alongside a new song, "If You Stay", which did not make the final track listing of the album. "Who Do You Love" was performed live but never released as a studio track. The three singles released from this album became three of their most successful and remembered singles.
