Four albums and nine years into a 29 million records-selling career, The Script decided to change things up a bit. It was time, and it was necessary.
The Irish trio had been rocking a creative routine: album, hit singles, tour… album, hit singles, tour… And it had worked: songs like For The First Time, Hall Of Fame, Breakeven and Superheroes had been smashes on a global scale. The Script’s combined YouTube views are one billion, and they’ve had three UK Number One albums. It adds up to a band who are that rarest of things: streaming-era superstars, beloved of any number of inspirational playlists; self-produced singer-songwriters, album artists in the traditional sense; and a huge, all-ages, all-sexes, arena-filling live phenom.
After almost 3 years since their last release, The Script have returned with their brand new single Rain. Rain was immediately added to playlists up and down the country and stormed straight into the Top 10 on iTunes - it was impossible to miss that The Script were back! Now the Irish three-piece announce more news - their fifth album Freedom Child will be released on 1st September and they will embark on an intimate tour around the UK and Ireland.
Freedom Child, their fifth album, sees the band very much in the real world, presenting a collection of urgent, timely, future-facing anthems that speak of both real-life events and real-time sonic adventurism. Freedom Child is The Script standing up and standing strong, its title a reflection of the “whole new world we’re in” and its songs demonstrating an energetic embrace of modern pop production. The album was recorded between London and Los Angeles and for the first time, the band chose to work with some outside writers and producers including Toby Gad and Nasri Atweh.
To coincide with the release of Freedom Child, The Script, who are no strangers to sold out arenas and stadiums, will get up close and personal with their loyal fan base at intimate shows around the country. The tour kicks off in their hometown of Dublin on 21st August and will wrap at London’s O2 Academy Brixton on 1st September.
Rain is picking up a phenomenal amount of support around the world. The single stormed straight into the Top 10 on iTunes and was added immediately to the Capital A List, Heart A List and Radio 2 B List. The Script also joined Nick Grimshaw on his Radio 1 Breakfast show and Rain is the Single of the Week on Radio 2. It’s also been added to over 300 playlists on Spotify and the video, has already been viewed over 1.6 million times.
The Script are one of the world’s most successful bands and have sold over 29 million records. The Irish three-piece have scored x3 multi-platinum albums, all of which were #1 in the UK. The Script have also picked up a huge following in the USA where they have x4 platinum selling singles under their belt. The Script are also one of the biggest live bands, having sold over 1.4 million tickets across 203 headline shows and they sold out the legendary Croke Park stadium in their hometown in a matter of minutes.
