Here we have the music video for Hanson’s “Thinking ‘Bout Something”, the first single off of their upcoming Shout It Out album. It recently got over a million views on MySpace, partially because band member Zac promised he would write a song called “Refresh” if it did. That’s not the only reason, however. The video is an awesome homage to Ray Charles’ role in the 1980 movie classic The Blues Brothers and has inspired the dance tutorial in the video below. Also, not to be missed is their live performance of it on The Late Show With David Letterman, where you see the wicked keyboard solo and brass section up close. Does this make you as interested in the rest of their upcoming album as I am?
