RED GREEN BLUE is the band’s 11th studio album, featuring a unique combination of the brothers’ three solo led projects, with each Hanson producing a third of the album – Taylor is red, Isaac is Green and Zac is Blue. Co-produced by Grammy Award-winning producer, engineer and mixer Jim Scott who has worked with the likes of Tom Petty, Red Hot Chili Pepper and Wilco, and Grammy Award-winning artist and producer David Garza who has worked on tracks by Fiona Apple and Midland, this is a HANSON album like no other.

HANSON dominated the music scene in the late ‘90s, with five times ARIA Platinum album Middle of Nowhere topping charts across Australia, the UK and Germany in 1997. In their first major tour since 2019, fans can expect a mix of old favourites blended with songs from their newest album.
