New Kids On The Block are still in the studio and hangin’ tough. And as Donnie Wahlberg writes on the group’s blog, they’re dispelling rumors.

“We are NOT recording with Michael Jackson and/or Madonna,” Wahlberg writes. “We never claimed to be, either. Good fun reading about [it] though!”

Wahlberg also says the recording of their album is going “great” and that he can’t wait until the band members can announce who they did collaborate with.

NKOTB’s current hit, “Summertime,” is at No. 43 on the Billboard Hot 100. The tour kicks off Sept. 18 in Toronto.
