Hanson will be most remembered for their 1997 hit "MmmBop," a sugary pop jam sung by three prepubescent boys. But 20 years later, those who haven't kept up with the brother trio might not realize that they're so much more than "MmmBop" -- they're vocalists.
To help emphasize Hanson's voices and the harmonies they're capable of, the guys created an album called String Theory, due later this fall. Zac, Taylor and Isaac collaborated with Oscar-winning composer David Campbell to put together orchestral arrangements of their biggest songs like "MmmBop" and "This Time Around," as well as never-before-heard tracks such as "Battle Cry" and "No Rest For The Weary."
It's a new way for Hanson to share their music, but more importantly, it's a career highlight for the brothers. "After playing together for more than 25 years, we said to ourselves, 'It’s now or never, its time to start checking things off the bucket list,' and we did it," Isaac tells Billboard. "It took almost two years of planning and working, but we were able to work with our dream collaborator, David Campbell."
