Hanson ‘Breaked’ to Create Something Unique on Red Green Blue E! News UK
Hanson decided to “break” for their new album “Red Green Blue”.
The band’s new album ‘MMMBop’ – which marks the band’s 30th anniversary and the 25th anniversary of their classic success – has seen brothers Taylor, Isaac and Zac change tact, with each third serving as a solo project for each respective brother.
Speaking to ‘Entertainment Tonight’, Taylor explained: “We’ve always focused on that unified voice. It’s an idea that Issac had for a long time.
“He said, ‘What if we had to split it up like this and each guy took five songs, said I’m going to write and produce and build each other up?’ “
He reassured fans it’s still a group record, but they’ve found “another way” to embrace each of the trios as individual musicians.
He explained: “At the end of the day, it’s still a Hanson record. It’s just another way of focusing on the fact that this is a group of three writers, three players and three singers. .”
Isaac added: “I think for a lot of people it’s a way of finding out things that you don’t know about what we do, and getting a fresh look at who we are as a band, who we are as artists and who we are as individuals.”
For Zac, he pointed out how the life of being in a band sometimes means they have to find a way to “grow and change”.
He said: “You have to grow and change, don’t you? As you go through 25 years of life. We started when I was six. I’m 36 right now. Things are very different.”
With “MMMBop” hitting the airwaves in 1997, it was “a lifetime” for the brothers.
Taylor added: “I mean, it’s been a lifetime. We started with nothing but vocals, and that’s how we got on stage 30 years ago…
“I think in the end, going back to that, going back to the song, talking about brothers and family singing together, you really can’t replicate that.”
