After teasing their loyal fan base the past few days, The Script have announced their return and released a brand-new single, “Rain.” Their first musical offering in almost three years, “Rain” is available to download and stream now on all digital platforms here. Released via Columbia Records, “Rain” is a taste of the band’s fifth album, more news will be announced in the coming weeks.
“Rain” soars as an infectious cloudburst of rhythmically-taut, piano-tinged pop with the kind of irresistible chorus that has become a trademark of the tight-knit band. Describing the song, The Script commented: “After a very long process of making Album 5, the song ‘Rain’ came right at the end. It’s a song for summer.” To celebrate the single launch, The Script will host an intimate performance event in New York City on July 20.
Comprised of Danny O’Donoghue, Mark Sheehan, and Glen Plower, The Script has sold more than 29 million records, with x3 multi-platinum albums, all of which were #1 in the UK. 2014’s No Sound Without Silence featured the anthemic hit “Superheroes,” which reached Top 10 at Adult Pop and has nearly 100M views for the official video. The Script have also picked up a huge following in the US where they have x4 platinum selling singles under their belt. They are also one of the biggest live bands, having sold over 1.4 million tickets across 203 headline shows and selling out the legendary Croke Park stadium in their hometown in a matter of minutes.
