The Script are back at the top of their game with their new album ‘Sunsets & Full Moons’. The album shot straight to #1 in the UK and has over 49 million streams already, a triumph that means that five of the band’s six albums have now topped the charts. And in Ireland they’ve achieved something bigger still, as ‘Sunsets & Full Moons’ ensured that all six of their albums have entered the charts at #1.
With the album already approaching Silver status in the UK, The Script build on its initial success by sharing their new single ‘Run Through Walls’. Already proving to be a firm fan favourite with 4 million streams to date, ‘Run Through Walls’ captures the strident melodies and heartfelt emotions that have come to be hallmarks of The Script’s arena-filling sound.
“This one’s a hyper-personal song,” explained frontman Danny O’Donoghue in Apple Music’s Editors’ Notes. “Earlier this year, I lost my mum. She passed away on the 8th of February. We buried her on Valentine’s Day, the same day we buried my father, 12 years to the day. I guess the comparisons are eerie, but when you’re going through a very rough time like that, there’s only one thing that’ll get you through that, and that’s your friends and family. I know now who my friends are, and I now know what the importance of life is; everything came into very sharp focus. It’s an open love letter to those people who go above and beyond for people who are in need.”
The release of ‘Sunsets & Full Moons’ has seen The Script add a fresh chapter to an already hugely successful career. So far they’ve accumulated 6 billion streams, 30 million single sales, 11 million album sales, over 12 million monthly Spotify listen
2020 is also shaping up be a phenomenal year for the Irish trio. In February they commence a major arena tour spanning the UK, Ireland and Europe in which two nights in Dublin and one show in Belfast are already sold-out. They’ll hit the road again in the summer with a mixture of huge outdoor gigs and major festivals sets throughout Europe, including one of the biggest moments of their career when they headline the Irish Independent Park in Cork.
