Hanson, 'Thinking 'Bout Somethin'' -- New Song

Hanson Thinking About Something'Thinking 'Bout Somethin'' is the first single from Hanson's fifth album 'Shout it Out.' In stores June 8, the album clearly shows the trio as fully respectable independent pop-rockers -- a natural evolution from their debut as teen sensations back in the '90s.

The video for the new song -- a faithful recreation of the famous Ray Charles-led 'Shake Your Tail Feather' street dance sequence from the 1980 movie 'The Blues Brothers,' -- fits in nicely with the single's organ-driven riff section and hand-clapping, giving classic soul a much lighter pop setting.

Ironically, the infectious, upbeat sound of the song is about a break-up. Lead singer Taylor Hanson may sing about a girl who's been running around on him, but certainly doesn't sound too down about it, as he cheerfully announces: "It's sad to say, but baby everyday / I've been thinking 'bout somethin' / I've been thinking 'bout somethin' other than you."

Hanson will start a big nationwide tour on July 21 in support of 'Shout it Out.' You can hear 'Thinking 'Bout Somethin'' for yourself by tuning into AOL Radio's New Pop First station.
