Multi-Grammy nominees Hanson are going on tour in support of their fourth studio album, The Walk, which was released on their own 3CG label on July 24. Co-produced with legendary producer Danny Kortchmar (Billy Joel, James Taylor, The Eagles), The Walk was inspired, in part, by Hanson's recent trip to South Africa and Mozambique, where they recruited children from the local orphanage to form a choir, who are featured on two songs on the new album.
