Haim Dress Up as Hanson (Haim-son) in Haim-larious Haim-oween Video

Rolling Stone

In celebration of Halloween (Haimoween), the band Haim have dressed up as the band Hanson (Haimson) in a new video posted to Twitter.

“Happy HAIMoween get ready for our new song thats a HAIMMMMMMMMbop TOMORROW xoxo HAIMson,” reads the caption.

Hanson (not Haimson) responded to the jam session with their own tweet: “HAIMSON is finally a reality. Guess we know our Halloween costumes! #brothersandsisters”

Along with being a fun celebration of the holiday, the Haim post also teases a new song arriving on Wednesday, which they’ve been hinting at for the past week or so. The band posted on October 21st, “We’re about to release the most haim haimy haim song ever written, cool?”

Given that it is the “most haim haimy haim” song, in their words, the new song is likely to be an original track and not a Hanson (Haimson) cover.

Last month, the trio of sisters appeared on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge and performed a cover of Lil Nas X’s “Panini,” mashing it up with Nirvana’s “In Bloom,” which the former song interpolates. This past summer, they released a new single, “Summer Girl,” and collaborated on the Charli XCX track “Warm” for her album Charli.

Why does every generation love the Backstreet Boys?

Tone Deaf

It was late 1997 and Hanson-mania had taken hold in Australia. ‘MMMBop’ dominated the airwaves and the boys from Oklahoma’s androgynous faces populated the magazine stands of every newsagency, corner store and petrol station.

I was in the thick of it, gobbling up all titbits of information available in those pre-internet days. This led to purchasing an edition of TV Hits that featured Hanson on its cover and included the printed lyrics to the Backstreet Boys’ latest single, ‘Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)’.

The song’s now such an immovable part of pop culture that it’s hard to imagine a world without it, but reading its lyrics for the first time raised a number of questions. Chiefly, who were “Backstreet” and why did the announcement of their return warrant an entire song? Not just any old song, either, but one of sufficient import to occupy precious column space in TV Hits.

It wasn’t long before ‘Everybody’ overtook ‘MMMBop’ in the commercial radio high rotation stakes and those questions faded into the background. The hits ‘As Long As You Love Me’ and ‘All I Have to Give’ followed in quick succession and now, 22 years later, BSB are the world’s most enduring and commercially successful boy band by a distance.

HANSON: The Musical Ride


WEEKLY PIC

These keys symbolize music history and a look into the future because we are always creating. Looking forward to seeing you at shows this month and next!


MESSAGE FROM THE BAND

We’re looking forward to a great week of shows starting tonight in Atlantic City, then heading down to Florida for what has become an annual string of shows as part of the Eat To The Beat festivity’s at Epcot. We’re making the most of an unplanned situation with Zac taking center stage and our friend Dash filling in on the drums. On a side note, there are surprising benefits to Zac not playing drums… way more cowbell! 25+ years and this musical ride keeps bringing us firsts, but we wouldn’t have it any other way!

We hope you will all join us in December for the Wintry Mix Tour all over the US, and for the Against The World Tour In 2020.

Isaac, Taylor And Zac

Happy birthday, Zac Hanson: Take a look back at the Hanson brothers through the years

Tulsa World

Happy birthday to Zac Hanson, who turns 34 years old on Tuesday.

More than 25 years after Isaac, Taylor and Zac Hanson’s first performance at Mayfest, they have seen the world, played “MMMBop” more times than they can fathom and built an enormous and fervent fanbase.

The creativity of the Tulsa-native brothers, so many years after they started their career as pre-teens, shows no signs of slowing.

Take a look back at photos of them through the years.

[interview at the link.  Yes, this is and interview with me!]

All-Star Christmas is coming back to Mohegan Sun on December 13th, and our lineup includes Goo Goo Dolls, Andy Grammer, Dean Lewis, and– of course– Hanson.

When we posted about the show on Facebook, one comment stood out– Katie said she has seen Hanson live 208 times!!!

Christine and Salt got Katie on the phone to talk about how she became a super-fan, and how it’s even possible to see a band that many times.

We also had a surprise for Katie… tickets to see Hanson for the 209th time at All-Star Christmas!\

Get your tickets to All-Star Christmas NOW!

HANSON: What Songs & How?


WEEKLY PIC

You’ve heard of behind the scenes images, this is about as all access as you could be, Z’s X-ray after the moto accident, thankfully, he’s on the mend.


MESSAGE FROM THE BAND

With Zac on the mend this week, things are returning to something much closer to normal. We have been making great progress on the 2020 world tour, not just setting dates for all the places we want to go, but also with who.  Music continues to inch closer to completion and with that we are spending more time talking about what songs we will be playing on the Wintry Mix Tour, but also how we will arrange them in their public debut.

The Wintry Mix Tour is fast approaching with just a little more than a month ’til shows begin. If you’re a hanson.net member, make sure to login and check in at every show you attend on the fall tour. We will be printing a one-of-a-kind poster for every show, signing it and giving it away to a lucky member. All you need to do is be a member and let us know you’re there by checking in.

There is so much good stuff going on and with a little luck we will be telling you a lot more about 2020 and Against the World before the end of the year. Until then, hope to see you at a show soon.

Isaac, Taylor and Zac

HANSON: A Crazy Week

WEEKLY PIC

It’s been a crazy week. Still looking ahead at exciting and fulfilling open roads.

MESSAGE FROM THE BAND

This week has been a little crazy after Zac’s motorcycle accident, but he is on the mend and getting a lot of rest, focused on healing before we go back on the road in just a few weeks, and then things really ramp up for the Wintry Mix Tour in December.

As tracking on Against the World continues, we are finally at the point where songs are getting completed. Vocals, drums, guitars, etc. The point when you ask everyone in the room, “what does this song need,” and we all just smile and reply, “nothing” We are by no means finished, but we can see the light at the end of the tunnel, and it feels good.

We can’t wait to share all this new music, and we can’t thank all of you enough for all the thoughts and prayers and support you have been sending Zac’s way.

Isaac, Taylor and Zac
