My dear Hanson fans:
You are a devoted group but you’re not buying CDs.
According to Nielsen Soundscan, the new Hanson album, “Shout it Out,” has sold a paltry 31,000 copies.
The most recent one before that was called “Walk.” Total sales to date from 2007: 54,000 copies.
The days of “MMMBop” are long since passed. This doesn’t mean Hanson are not talented musicians. It’s just that their day in the sun has come and gone. This can be said for plenty of acts. I wish them well in all their endeavors.
