HANSON DEBUTS NEW VIDEO FOR "THINKING 'BOUT SOMETHIN'"
NEW ALBUM, SHOUT IT OUT, IN STORES AND ONLINE JUNE 8
HANSON is proud to announce the premiere of their new music video for the song "Thinking 'Bout Somethin'" on MySpace Music today. Starting today, fans can view the video exclusively and in its entirety via the social-networking site's Music channel. As the first single from the group's upcoming full-length Shout It Out, "Thinking 'Bout Somethin'," a song MTV Buzzworthy recently declared a "Song You Need to Know," is an unbelievably catchy and joyous track that was recently released via iTunes on April 27.
The music video for "Thinking 'Bout Somethin'" is HANSON's recreation of a scene from The Blues Brothers, where soul music incited a huge impromptu crowd to dance in the streets. HANSON took to the streets of their hometown of Tulsa, OK, with more than 300 extras, including two of Taylor’s children, 60 local dancers and hundreds of loyal fans who traveled from far and wide to participate. To top it off, ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic made an unforgettable guest appearance.
Shout It Out is the three-time Grammy-nominated independent band of brothers’ fifth studio record. It’s a fantastically infectious 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. HANSON will debut Shout It Out later this month on the final night of their sold-out five-night stand at NYC's Gramercy Theatre, where they will also be playing each of their previous albums in their entirety.
