This upbeat pop/rock number is the second single from American band Hanson's eighth studio album, Shout It Out
. The song acts as the follow-up to Thinking 'Bout Somethin'
. "'Give a Little' is the perfect connector to the first single," Taylor Hanson told MTV News. "There's this energy to it. Strangely, there's this dance theme. We're not known for our dancing, but dancing is this metaphor that's in the record."
"[The metaphor] is kind of 'Get out there and let loose,' " Taylor added. "Spring will be here before we know it, and the song is upbeat and hopefully engaging."
