After almost 3 years since their last release, The Script recently returned with their brand new single ‘Rain’ out through Columbia Records. ‘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. The Irish three-piece have subsequently announced 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’ sees the band presenting a collection of urgent, timely, future-facing anthems that speak of both real-life events and real-time sonic adventurism. The album was recorded between London and Los Angeles and for the first time, the band chose to work with an A List of co-writers and producers. The follow up to 2014’s ‘No Sound Without Silence’ is available to pre-order now from here.
The tracklisting for Freedom Child is:
No Man Is An Island
Rock The World
