“We’ve always been passionate about music and entertaining people,” Mike Tierney, 44, told the Daily Mail Australia.

“We love doing the live shows, but creating this new music has been a completely new approach for us,” he added when he returned to the studio for their new album.
Mike also admitted that while he finds the songwriting process exciting, the group had to figure out where their sound fits into today’s pop landscape.
“It had been 15 years since we wrote a song together,” added 46-year-old Andrew Tierney.

“Mike and I wrote a lot of the core lyrics for all of Human Nature’s early original albums and this new body of work started to take shape once we started writing together again, so it’s come full circle.”
“When Mike and I talked about the direction we wanted to take with these new Human Nature songs,” Andrew explained.
“We wanted it to be positive, uplifting pop with a deeper message underneath — to make people feel better about where they are and cheer them up a bit.”
