Hi. This is the first year that the streams are being shown after the Hanson Day premiers of the songs. The streams are from the making of the Animal Instincts EP and were probably recorded in early April. Seeing it like this is certainly different to hearing the music after seeing the making of.
In the past, some streams have been live-streamed but quite frankly, I think the last time that Hanson actually LIVE streamed the writing of the EP might have been in 2011. Something knocks on my mind saying 2013, but somehow I don't think that's probable.
The fact that people talk about these streams as live, is misleading. They were recorded live, and that's it. A prime example of this is the way people were going on about livestreams of the writing of Finally It's Christmas, while those streams had been recorded 14 months earlier.
I think the last real live stream on HNET was the Christmas stream last year, and before that the other live Hanson stream was the Christmas show on Yahoo! Live, I think.
