Extensive Definition

Underneath is an album by American pop/rock and Indie group Hanson. It was released in 2004 by 3CG Records. It is the band's first release on their own independent record label.

Worldwide sales

To date, the album has sold more than 350,000 copies, 137,000 of which were US sales and around 17,000 of which were sold in the UK, making this their lowest selling official release. This despite the success of "Penny & Me", which hit #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart and #10 on the UK Top 40. The second single, "Lost Without Each Other", didn't chart in most countries, and only reached number #39 on the UK Top 40. Hanson themselves have said that they have endured a financial loss in making and releasing the album, to the point where in some places, the album itself transitioned from mainstream retail locations to discount stores, particularly across England. It has been speculated that any loss will be or has been made up from tour proceeds, as they tend to generate more direct income for bands than record sales can.

Underneath chart positions

  • Billboard Top 200 - #25
