Hanson are currently on the road in support of their latest album, ‘Shout It Out,’ and have been checking in from the road all along the way. In their latest video, the band hits the West Coast, stopping to talk about their more “straight ahead” album and its strong ties to Motown.
“One of the great things about this new record was we were able to sort of connect with Motown in a major way,” Taylor tells Adam Corolla on his talk show. “One is [that] most of the record was recorded on a Motown console, an old Neve. But the bass player we brought in at the end was Bob Babbit — he’s one of the only white guys that played in the [Funk Brothers]. James Jameson and Bob Babbit are the guys.”
Watch Taylor open up about the band has moved away from R&B, and hear more from Hanson’s interviews with Corolla and KLOS’s Mark and Brian after the jump.
