They’ve called their new single “Summertime” and the tune is, well, appropriately sunny. The New Kids on the Block will officially release the synth-heavy anthem on May 13, but PEOPLE.com has a first taste. Sweet and bright, the song finds the guys getting nostalgic, singing, “I think of you in the summertime / and all the good times we had, baby.”

Listen to it here:

Next up, the New Kids will perform the full song on the Today show on May 16 for their first live performance in 15 years before hitting the road for a summer tour.
