MMMBop!

Just like that, Hanson is back in the music scene! With the release of their newest studio album, Anthem, and their hit single, Get The Girl Back, the three brothers are ready to do what they do best yet again!

Lucky for us — and for you — Taylor, Zac, and Isaac visited PerezHilton.com for an EXCLUSIVE interview, in which they dished on working with Glee fave, Darren Criss, Nikki Reed, their thoughts on Kim and Kanye’s baby name, and so much more!!

Ch-ch-check it out (above)!! And be sure to stay tuned for MORE EXCLUSIVE Hanson footage, including two slamming performances!!!

If you simply can’t wait for some of our favorite snippets, read a few of their most memorable quotes….AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Taylor speaks about running into some trouble during the album recording process:

“We actually had to take a break, and part of that break was not simply just going on vacation. It was being apart and asking what are the priorities for our band… Everytime you go do an album, you have to be saying ‘I’m genuinely excited about what we’re gonna create next.’ When you’ve been doing it for 20 years, you need to be sure you’re on the same page. All of that being said, I think this record is one of our most poignant records. It has a really strong sense of itself from the beginning through the end.”

Taylor dishes on the beauty of playing live music:

“It’s really not about whether you’re tired of this or you’re worn out or you’re beat up. Playing music is about connecting with people. It’s about taking that moment and realizing that person could be there for the first time…to give people a moment to remember.”

Isaac talks about working with Darren Criss:

“Darren is an extremely talented musician. You never fully know until you sit down and meet people. Obviously, he’s made music for a long time, but then when you get the opportunity to fully interact with somebody, and Darren being most known for his acting and being in Glee, you’re going, ‘What is this interaction going to be like?’ And man, he’s great!”

Taylor, on working with Kat and Nikki for their Get The Girl Back video:

“We met Kat Dennings and Nikki Reed both because they at different times during the last album reached out and said ‘Hey, I love your band.’ The feeling was mutual…and we started having a friendship.

Zac, on Kim and Kanye’s baby name choices:

“Are they going North West? Are they going South East? Headed to North West to do some babysitting?”

HA! We’re swooning for these guyzzzz. Even if they are married!

    I think Hanson really loves Billy Joel, came across an article about that before when they talked about music and their influences. Awesome
