It’s been nearly 20 years since Hanson sky-rocketed to fame with their hit single, “MMMBop,” but the trio is still making waves… and music.
The band just wrapped up a special “long-form” 10-city tour across the U.S. and Canada — appropriately titled The Roots and Rock ‘n’ Roll Tour. It featured two concerts in each of the 10 major markets with one night dedicated to playing covers by artists that inspire Hanson — Beach Boys, Michael Jackson, Billy Joel, etc. — and the second featuring their own hits.
ET caught up with Zac, Taylor, and Isaac Hanson in Los Angeles and they promised that more new tunes are on the way.
“Always, absolutely… all the time,” Zac says when asked if they’re currently writing new material for a potential seventh studio album, adding that fans can “definitely” expect a seventh studio album.
“I’m sure there will be a record in the future there,” Taylor adds. “But we’re in a phase where we just want people to expect that there’s more coming. Whether it’s a special tour that has an EP… we do a destination concert where people travel to Jamaica and spend a week with us there… it might be a downloading a song off of our beer… so there will be more music no matter what.”
Aside from working on new music — Hanson also balances raising families. All three brothers are married with kids — Taylor and his wife, Natalie, have five children while Isaac and Zac each have three with their wives, Nicole and Kate, respectively.
Do any of the 11 Hanson kids have musical aspiration? Could a Hanson 2.0 be in the works?
“There’s a lot of music in the Hanson family,” Taylor says. “I mean, it’s just in the gene pool. It’s around them… they’re around it.”
Well. We’re ready for new music from Hanson — and their kids!
