Hanson have announced in celebration of their 30th anniversary, they will be releasing a new album and going on a worldwide tour.
The pop-rock trio made the announcement on Friday that their new album RED GREEN BLUE will be released via 3CG Records on May 20th to coincide with their milestone anniversary.
The three brothers, Taylor, 38, Isaac, 41, and Zac, 36, will be taking the album on tour across the world, with tickets going on sale January 20.
The new project utilises the inspiration of colours to reflect the unique creative voice of each brother, with a third of the album written and produced by each individual (Taylor’s Red, Isaac’s Green and Zac’s Blue).
Beginning in June in Europe, the Red Green Blue World Tour will bring the band to the US and Canada from July-September, Latin America in September and Australia & New Zealand in November.
Coming to the UK
They will be coming to the UK in June and July and will be performing in London, Leeds, Bristol, Nottingham, Glasgow and Manchester.
The project brings together a team of collaborators, with the album co-produced by Grammy award winning Producer, Engineer and Mixer Jim Scott and Grammy Award winning Artist and Producer David Garza.
Speaking about the album, Isaac said: ‘This project is about bringing new perspective to the music of this band, stretching new muscles as writers and producers, and ultimately shining a light on the definitive creative voices of each band member which has defined our sound’.
Taylor added: ‘Our love and respect for Jim Scott has only grown over the last twenty years since we first met. He has been behind some of our favorite albums of all time, so it’s an absolute joy to have finally made a project from the ground up together.’
Zac echoed: ‘We have had a deep connection with David since our early days breaking into music and his work as creative force is off the charts. We could not have had a better musical collaborator for this milestone project.’
