Pop-Rock trio HANSON announces their RED GREEN BLUE WORLD TOUR with tickets on sale January 20, along with their unique new album comprised of the band’s three solo-lead projects. RED GREEN BLUE will be released via 3CG Records on May 20th right as the band is reaching the milestone of 30 years performing together.
The new project utilizes the inspiration of colours to reflect the unique creative voice of each brother, with a third of the album written and produced by each individual (Taylor’s Red, Isaac’s Green and Zac’s Blue). The project brings together a team of collaborators, with the album co-produced by Grammy award winning Producer, Engineer and Mixer Jim Scott (Tom Petty, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Wilco), and Grammy Award winning Artist and Producer David Garza (Fiona Apple, Midland, Sharon Van Etten).
“This project is about bringing new perspective to the music of this band, stretching new muscles as writers and producers, and ultimately shining a light on the definitive creative voices of each band member which has defined our sound,” said Isaac Hanson.
“Our love and respect for Jim Scott has only grown over the last twenty years since we first met. He has been behind some of our favorite albums of all time, so it’s an absolute joy to have finally made a project from the ground up together,” said Taylor Hanson.
Added Zac Hanson, “We have had a deep connection with David since our early days breaking into music and his work as creative force is off the charts. We could not have had a better musical collaborator for this milestone project.”
Today, HANSON has also announced that they are ready to come back together with fans around the world after more than three years without a major tour. The announcement of their Red Green Blue World Tour also coincides with the bands 30th anniversary. See UK shows below.
Beginning in June in Europe, the Red Green Blue World Tour will bring HANSON to the US and Canada from July-September, Latin America in September and Australia & New Zealand in November. The band’s first major tour since their String Theory album & tour in 2018/2019, fans are in store for a tour which not only features the premiere of 15 songs from the new project, but also includes live performances of 2020’s Against The World and career spanning set-list of fan favourites.
Fresh off of the release of Against The World, featuring seven songs released consecutively each month, the prolific band of brothers are reinforcing their deep musicality and credibility as writers, performers and producers with this new project. Leading up to May’s full album release of RED GREEN BLUE, fans will get a taste of the trifecta of sound, with a single release featuring each of the brothers songs.
