HANSON today release their new track ‘Write You A Song’, the second single from the multi-platinum, 3 GRAMMY® Award-nominated pop-rock trio’s eagerly anticipated new project, ‘RED GREEN BLUE’.
Written by Isaac Hanson, and co-produced by Isaac, GRAMMY® Award-winning Producer/Engineer/Mixer Jim Scott (Tom Petty, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Wilco) and GRAMMY® Award-winning Artist/Producer David Garza (Fiona Apple, Midland, Sharon Van Etten), the organic and heartwarming song is available now via 3CG Records at all DSPs and streaming services.
You can stream ‘Write You A Song’ here.
On the brand new track Isaac commented,
“This song is about holding on to the things that really matter in life, those simple daily moments that are precious and honest and go by so fast,” says Isaac Hanson of the song. “Whether it is between a parent and a child or a romantic relationship, it is important to capture those moments in photos, videos, and yes in songs, so that you remember them and make them last.”
‘RED GREEN BLUE’ was heralded last month with the album’s emotive and dynamic first single, ‘Child at Heart’, available now at all DSPs and streaming services. An official music video is streaming now via YouTube.
Comprising three solo-led projects from Taylor, Isaac, and Zac Hanson, ‘RED GREEN BLUE’ arrives via 3CG Records on Friday, May 20, and is available for pre-order on vinyl, CD, and digital at all retailers now. The album, which marks HANSON’s milestone 30th anniversary, brings together the band’s three unique creative voices like never before, with a third of the album written and produced by each brother: Taylor’s RED, Isaac’s GREEN, and Zac’s BLUE.
The album, which is also, co-produced with Jim Scott and David Garza, amplifies the band’s unique trifecta of sound in a new way which is highlighted through the release of three singles, one featuring each brother. Starting with Taylor’s “Child At Heart” followed by Isaac’s “Write You A Song” (out today) and the rock-infused force of Zac’s “Don’t Let Me Down” (April 15), each song is a clue to the unique musical influences which make up the project.
“Going into our 30th year as a band we felt like it was imperative we continue to tell our story like only we can,” says Isaac Hanson, “and telling stories in ways that will continue to challenge us to grow and give people new reasons to listen. ‘RED GREEN BLUE’ is about sharing what has made us a band that has been able to weather so many storms.”
“Our love and respect for Jim Scott has only grown since we first met 20 years ago,” says Taylor Hanson. “He has been behind some of our favourite albums, so it’s an absolute joy to have finally made a project together.”
“We have had a long friendship and deep connection with David Garza since our early days as a band,” says Zac Hanson. “We could not have had a better musical collaborator for this milestone project.”
HANSON will celebrate the new album on their upcoming RED GREEN BLUE World Tour, set to get underway June 8 in Helsinki, Finland’s House of Culture. 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 2020s ‘Against The World’ and career spanning set-list of fan favourites.
