We have spent the better part of this week planning for the upcoming streams, as well as HANSON Day and Back To The Island, but the biggest thing this week has to be the ICON book, because it comes with new music. The ICON book is a collection of all the paintings done for ANTHEM, paintings that were sold as a part of the ANTHEM Platinum packages. When we began working on the ICON book, gathering the images of all the paintings, there was a sense that the best way to showcase the art was to maintain its relationship to the music. And so we decided to release three new songs with the book. The music really runs the gamut, but so does the art, and that makes it a perfect pairing. It feels great to have a lot going on after the extended build of the new website had kept things quiet for so long. The Voice Mail contest is now closed. I know a lot of people entered, but only 15 can win! Even if you don’t win, we will be sure to share a little of the recording so you still feel like a winner.
Another thing we have been doing this past week is the A Song To Sing Contest. The contest is all about you picking cover songs for us to sing. Anyone can submit cover songs for us to do, and then next week Hanson.net members will get to vote. The winning song will be played live as a part of the Alive Tonight stream on November 1st. Today is the last day to submit songs, but we hope to do this again soon, so stay tuned.
Isaac, Taylor and Zac
