On Friday, The Script revealed a special video for their new single “Arms Open” from their latest album Freedom Child. The emotional video, directed by Frank Borin, was made in partnership with the charity A Sense Of Home and features real-life stories and footage of people helped by the non-profit organization – watch it above. To support the cause, share the video and donate at http://asenseofhome.org/donate.
“For us, this is more than just a music video. Like the song itself, we wanted to reach out to as many people as possible, people who have been less fortunate in life, giving them a platform to tell their stories. On researching the ideas for the video, we came across so many charities, and while they are all doing such great work, we were immediately inspired by A Sense Of Home and wanted to show support and build awareness. This organization offered a real solution that could be rolled out across the world, particularly in Ireland where this problem is so prevalent. Share it wide and share it proud with arms open.” Danny, Mark & Glen, The Script
“A Sense of Home is honored to collaborate with The Script on this pioneering music video for their inspired ballad ‘Arms Open.’ We hope and trust it will bring understanding to all of those in need of a loving embrace from community and bring us all more connected to one another.” Georgie Smith, Founder & Executive Director, A Sense Of Home
