Hanson Debut New Single “Thinking ‘Bout Somethin”, Announce New Album “Shout It Out”

April 6, 2010 by  
Filed under Daily Music News

Hanson has announced the release of their new record, Shout It Out, on their own 3CG Records on June 8, 2010. Shout It Out is a collection of finely crafted, R&B-flavored pop-rock — an homage to the music that inspired the band when they started out. The album was recorded in a studio on a 2,000-acre pecan farm in El Paso, Texas, and was produced and written exclusively by HANSON, augmented with special guests: Funk Brothers bassist Bob Babbitt, who played on some of Motown’s greatest hits, as well as horn arranger Jerry Hey, who worked with Michael Jackson, Quincy Jones, Earth, Wind and Fire and many more.

Taylor Hanson had this to say “The anatomy of our band is similar to a ’70s rock band – three guys from the Midwest who grew up listening to ’50s and ’60s soul, who are mixing guitars, with vintage keys and melodic songs,”  Adds Isaac, “We’ve never stopped aspiring to the great songwriters and performers who struck a chord with us first, that early rock ‘n’ rock roll and soul music from Chuck Berry to Otis Redding. We’ve rediscovered that aspiration on this record. There’s a little more swing and a little more air.”

The first single from Shout It Out, “Thinking ‘Bout Somethin’,” will be released exclusively via Itunes on April 27th. You can preview it now on Popeater  here.
