The Script have released their new album ‘Sunsets & Full Moons’. The release of their sixth album finds the band back at the peak of powers. It’s lead single ‘The Last Time’ has already soared over 16 million streams. Its profile has been assisted by an appearance on BBC Breakfast this morning, a dynamic performance on The Jonathan Ross Show plus extensive support at Radio 2, which included an unforgettable moment when they performed the Blondie classic ‘Heart of Glass’ in front of Debbie Harry on The Zoe Ball Breakfast Show.
‘Sunsets & Full Moons’ sees the band embracing the unifying power of music’s biggest traits – killer hooks, insistent melodies and stirring sentiments. In many ways, it feels like a sequel to their much-loved debut album. Both emerged from emotionally turbulent times: frontman Danny O’Donoghue lost his father around the time of the release of their debut and ten years later, he lost his mother as they worked on this album. Naturally the songs began to reflect the band’s own experiences – and those are themes sure to resonate with their fans, too. Yet hope is its overriding theme.
‘Sunsets & Fill Moons’ was produced by The Script at Metropolis Studios. They were helped by mixing master and old friend Mark ‘Spike’ Stent (Coldplay, Beyoncé, Frank Ocean) plus Manny Marroquin (Post Malone, Lizzo, Dua Lipa) and Dan Frampton (AuRa, Maejor, Jack Savoretti).
The result is a collection that’s sure to launch a new era in the band’s story, having already scored four #1 albums, 6 billion streams, 30 million single sales, 10.8 million album sales, over 12 million monthly Spotify listeners and 1.8 million ticket sales.
