Hanson Rolls Camera On "This Time Around"

It is time once again for the Hanson train to get rolling.

The Oklahoma trio's first album in three years, "This Time Around," arrives on May 9, and the band recently trotted out to Los Angeles to shoot a video for the title track. The band hooked up with director David Meyers and put together a performance-rich clip, which was not their original intent.

"The song actually has a very serious meaning," Taylor Hanson told MTV News while shooting the video in late January. "It's kind of about fighting for what you would die for and what people would die for. We thought about focusing the storyline of the video on that, but we felt that some of the concepts in the song were a little too serious and might scare some people off. So we decided to go for a more performance-based video, but the song definitely has some very serious meaning." [RealVideo]

The single, which also features

blues guitar whiz Jonny Lang, should start hitting radio next week, and the clip will debut on an edition of MTV's "Making The Video" that airs Monday, March 6 at 10:30 p.m. (ET)
