After almost three years since their last release, The Script returned last Friday with their brand new single -Rain', out now through Columbia Records via Sony Music Entertainment Australia. Today, the Irish three-piece announce more news - their fifth album, Freedom Child, will be released on Friday September 1st.
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 here.
