We are looking ahead to new horizons this week, anticipating amazing projects and exciting new partnerships. It’s good to remember that every day something beautiful like this happens.


We have been having a great week focusing on one of the finishing stages of any collection of music – mixing. Tracking is finished for the Play EP and we are now moving on to the final stages of the project, getting all the levels just right and tweaking the smallest details before we send the songs off to be mastered.  We listen in the studio, in the car, and on headphones trying to hear each song in all the possible locations that it will be heard down the road. Then we use our best judgment on how it will sound the nicest on every stereo – old, new, and all in-between. Play will not be out for a few months, but starting in September we will open the doors to 3CG studios to share footage from the making of.  Making Play is a labor of love (in all of that statement’s contradictions) and one we hope you will all enjoy when it comes out this fall.

If you are a member, we do have something special this week for your listening pleasure.  During HANSON Day 2016, members were treated to Zac recording a song live on stage as part of his Choo Choo Trains Of Thought lecture and now the song by the same name is available to listen to HERE. For those members wanting to add it to their permanent collection, Choo Choo Trains Of Thought has also been added to the Super Digital Pantsalbum. Keep checking for new photos and videos as we will continue to share lots more from the making of Loud and Play in the coming weeks and months.

Isaac, Taylor and Zac

The T-shirt features an unforgettable image of Zac riding a toy train on the front and includes the names of all members who attended the lectures on the back as a big thank you for taking part in the madness.  The shirt will only be available as a Pre-Order so place your order before July 4th to ensure you get one!
