The Script–Dublin, Ireland’s chart-topping hit-makers, step up to the podium with their Olympic sized new single, “Hall Of Fame,” featuring global superstar will.i.am, off of their forthcoming release, #3, out October 9th. Penned by the band (Danny O’Donoghue, Mark Sheehan and Glen Power), inspirational new single brings the band back to their piano-laden, pop melodiousness, blending a seamless duet with the hip hop lyrical flow of will.i.am. It’s clear The Script have raised the stakes with “Hall of Fame,” declaring “… and the world’s gonna know your name.” On “Hall of Fame,” Mark Sheehan comments: “We wanted to capture as much emotion in the track’s sound as there is in the lyrics, which are definitely some of the most positive and upbeat we’ve ever written.” In December of 2011, The Script’s frontman Danny O’Donoghue joined Jessie J, Tom Jones and will.i.am as a judge on BBC’s inaugural season of The Voice UK. Working with will.i.am on “Hall Of Fame,” Danny O’Donoghue says: “We thought it might make a great duet but we wanted to do it line by line, true duet style. It took several months, a headlock and a taxi cab to get Will on the song!” The Script have enjoyed an epic rise to fame following the success of their 2008 self-titled debut album and their massive platinum selling single, “Breakeven.” That single rewrote history on Billboard’s Adult Pop Songs airplay radio chart, taking the #1 spot, where the song completed a record-setting 36 week rise to the summit. Impressively, the band has sold over five million singles in the US, and has played stadium shows with Paul McCartney and their mentors, U2. www.thescriptmusic.com
