Hanson (remember them?) have announced they will form their own record label – 3CG Records – in order to release their third album ‘Underneath’ next
year. The sibling pop trio parted company from Universal label Island Def Jam last May.
Although their intention is to use the label to find and promote new artists in the future most attention will be given to promoting ‘Underneath’ in the short term. It will be the band’s first album since 2000′s ‘This Time Around’.
Commenting on the label launch singer/guitarist Taylor Hanson told reporters in New York: “There have been a lot of changes happening in the music industry, and for us, starting a record label was a way to reach our fans in a new way. We’re excited to take it to the next level.”
3CG releases will be distributed in North America by ADA, in the UK via Universal Distribution and will be licensed to JVC in Japan.
