After six billion streams, thirty million single sales, nearly eleven million album sales, and over twelve million monthly Spotify listeners, Irish alt-pop trio The Script embark upon a new chapter with the release of their new album Sunsets & Full Moons.

Having returned with the emotive, stadium-bound first single The Last Time, Sunsets & Full Moons is the sound of The Script; Danny O’Donoghue (vocals, piano, guitar), Mark Sheehan (vocals, guitars) and Glen Power (drums), focusing on the inclusive, uplifting song writing that helped them become an arena-filling band with a fervent fan base the world over.

In many ways, Sunsets & Full Moons feels like a sequel to The Script’s much-loved debut album. Both albums emerged from emotionally turbulent times; 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; with both his parents passing on Valentine’s Day. Naturally the songs began to reflect the band’s own personal experiences, and those are themes sure to resonate with their fans, too.

“I think it’s the most poignant record we’ve ever made,” asserts O’Donoghue. “Our music was always about being together with the audience, and writing about your own feelings, and sharing them”.

The Script approached the album reinvigorated following a triumphant tour in support of 2017’s number one album Freedom Child. Again echoing their early days, the band embraced the unifying power of the simple things; killer hooks, insistent melodies and stirring sentiments. They opted to produce the album themselves, staying close to home at their unshowy space in Metropolis Studios, with help from 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).
