Pop-rock trio Hanson are back with their brand new album ‘Anthem’, which is set to be released on July 1 in the UK and Europe, along with the album’s lead single ‘Get The Girl Back’. The announcement coincides with plans for the UK and European leg of the world tour, which is set for this December.
‘Anthem’ was produced and written by the band, and mixed by Tom Lord-Alge. Its guitar-driven sound pulls from some of the band’s harder hitting rock and R&B influences – from James Brown, to early Michael Jackson, and AC/DC.
Speaking of the new album, Taylor said: “We have always been in awe of the ability music has to engage people, whether it’s a song that makes you want to dance, or a song that inspires you to take action for a cause. We want this record to be the anthem for all of those moments.”
The release of ‘Anthem’ in the UK and Europe comes amid a busy year for the band. ‘Anthem’ is the fourth to be released on the band’s own independent 3CG Records, which they founded a decade ago.
