The band has a new concert special airing Friday, Feb. 2 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on AT&T’s AUDIENCE Network and streaming on AT&T's DirecTV Now platform, and only ET has a sneak peek at their buoyant performance of their current single, "I Was Born." Check it out in the player above.
The one-hour concert and interview was shot on location at AT&T AUDIENCE Network’s studio in Los Angeles, California, with series host Ted Stryker.
"'I Was Born' is built on the idea that every person has a unique purpose and potential to change the world around them,” the band explains. “This is a theme that has inspired us to pursue our own dream of making music for 25 years."
"[It] talks about taking on the challenge of not settling," Zac Hansontold ET in an interview last month. "Our livelihood, our story, has been being young kids and saying, 'I want to make music, let's do it.' And we still want to challenge ourselves."
The song is featured on the band's 25th anniversary greatest hits collection, Middle of Everywhere, which was released last year. To celebrate, the brothers embarked on a worldwide anniversary tour.
Looking ahead to 2018, Hanson teased plans for a "bucket list" new project.
"The planning of it is quite extensive," Isaac Hanson teased.
"The main takeaway for us is that part of the reason we get to do what we do is because we have that community of fans that we've had that direct connection with for a long time," Taylor Hanson said. "So, we feel like the fans that have followed up in a way have earned the fact that we don't want to settle for anything. We want to do things that are challenging. Next year is making new music and playing special shows and keeping it exciting, making sure that every time we announce something, people are genuinely going, 'Oh, I can't wait to see that.'"
