“You guys have been with us for decades,” Taylor Hanson told a sold-out crowd earlier this week. “This 21 thing is not possible without you guys. What better way to celebrate than throwing our own bash with you?”

Hanson performed a career-spanning, two-hour set during their June 17th birthday show, just one of two nights spent celebrating at NYC’s Irving Plaza. While older tracks like monster hit “MMMBop” and “Lucy” off 1997’s Middle of Nowhere received the most screams, don’t count out 2000’s “This Time Around” and current single “Get The Girl Back” — they were close contenders.

Before Hanson took the stage, tracks from their new album Anthem were played on the speakers and many in the crowd already knew all the words, though the record’s official release date was the following day. The Hanson brothers — Isaac, Taylor, and Zac — told that their latest release was aptly titled. Watch our video interview below.
