Usually only a single background vocal track is not enough. So you want to either double them or add additional harmony parts. Layering additional background tracks can create a lot more depth and realism if you use this trick. After the first background vocal is recorded, have each of the vocalist take one step backwards away from the mic. Have them sing the part, but adjust the level so the meter reads the same as the previous vocal recording. (music playing) Pan each background track left and right. For for each additional part, have the vocalist take another step backwards and readjust the volume so it's about the same as the first track.
