Taylor begins recording the lead vocal for “Feeling Alive,” a new song set to release in October as part of the Play EP


After all the events around HANSON Day and The Hop Jam, we decided to take an extra long weekend off to rejuvenate and of course celebrate Memorial Day last weekend. We are back in the studio now, but before we get too far from it, we want to say another big THANK YOU to everyone who came out to celebrate HANSON Day with us this year.  What a great way to start the HANSON calendar. There were many returning events as well as a few new ones and, of course, a lot of brand new music.  If you are a member, you either picked up yourLoud EP during HANSON Day weekend or it is in the mail to you as of this week.  We had a great time recording the five songs on Loud and dreaming about how they could become something more when combined with the Play EP.  Loud + Play, Loud Play, to play loudly, in the end that is what we do when we make music.  Yes, it is a lot of work to go from an idea to a completed recording, but it is nothing short of a pleasure to make your living sharing stories and give words to emotions. We hope all of you had a great time in Tulsa and are enjoying Loud!

If you missed any of the Streams from the making of Loud we will be looping them all weekend to celebrate the Loud EP’s going out to members.

This week, we have been working on what comes next. Members got to hear four of the five songs that will become Play, our next EP set to release in October. During the HANSON Day concert we taught the audience parts for each new song and recorded them to use as a massive group vocal. It came out perfectly!  Final lyrics are still in flux and sequences are still being refined, but the energy that was captured in the live recordings helps to realize a big part of what we hoped Play would sound like. Now we have to bring together the ideas and live recordings into a finished project.

Isaac, Taylor and Zac
