Hanson's new song is an ode to their '90s fame
With their new song “I Was Born,” Hanson revisits their extremely dance-y pop roots.
The accompanying video even features adorable kids and adorable, well, Hanson brothers. In honor of their 25th year as a band, the group has released a greatest-hits collection Middle of Everywhere: The Greatest Hits. With “I Was Born,” the band celebrates exactly what they were always about – their individuality.
The effect Hanson had on the boy band scene in the ’90s was unlike what everyone else was doing by representing literal brotherly love. The three golden haired brothers changed our musical lives with the song “MMMBop,” one of the catchiest tunes in any of our middle school memories.
Though there are plenty of “MMMBop” jokes to be made, the boys have completely owned the song. They even released a beer called “Mmmhops” a few years back. And that’s just one of the many reasons we still love them.
Since the ’90s, Hanson has honed in on their music and lyrical skills. Though they have released a handful of albums since they first burst onto the scene, we are especially excited about the 25th anniversary album.
With their new song, Hanson celebrates the freedom in just being yourself – a message we will always support.
We love the kids in the video, and we love the reason why they chose to feature kids.
And what we all need right now is a celebration of being ourselves with a side of optimism. Thanks for delivering that, Hanson! We’ve missed you.
