The brothers announced they will be dropping their ninth studio album, Anthem, on June 18, and will kick off the Anthem World Tour on July 18.
The band also revealed the album’s first single, “Get the Girl Back,” will be released April 9, with the single available for pre-order on April 1.
The video for “Get the Girl Back,” which includes cameos by Nikki Reed, Drake Bell, Drew Seeley and Kat Dennings, will premiere on April 6. The video is set in a club and features another special appearance — Hanson fans!
Back in January, Isaac Hanson talked with AOL Music about recruiting members of the band’s fanbase to appear in the video.
“It was fun for us to have the opportunity to give the fanbase a little teaser, and also for them to feel intimately involved in a way that normally fans of a band don’t get that opportunity particularly,” he explained, “Maybe wind up with a random shot of them in the band that they like’s music video.”
Luckily, “Get the Girl Back” was the perfect setting for fan interaction.
“We thought that was a fun opportunity and, most importantly, it wouldn’t work if the treatment for the song and for the video didn’t call for that kind of engagement,” Isaac added. “But since it did, we were like, ‘We gotta make this happen and get the fans involved ’cause they’ll have a good time.’ And luckily the response was good!”
