After achieving 10 billion streams, 12 million album sales, six UK #1 albums, and two Platinum-certified US singles, The Script is back with their new album ‘Satellites,’ set to release on August 16, 2024. Alongside this announcement, the band has also revealed plans for a UK and European arena tour, previewed today by the single ‘Both Ways.’ Listen now.

‘Both Ways’ showcases The Script’s fresh, dynamic energy, blending boisterous hip-hop and funk rhythms with Danny’s star-quality vocals. The track delivers an explosive, fun vibe reminiscent of the Black Eyed Peas performing Bruno Mars’ ‘Locked Out of Heaven,’ marking a significant departure from the band’s previous work.

Glen Power comments, “‘Both Ways’ is high energy and might surprise some people. But we’re The Script, and we have something to prove: that there is life and light after the darkness. That’s why we’re coming out strong with this one.”

In honor of their late bandmate Mark Sheehan, vocalist Danny O’Donoghue returned to the studio with renewed purpose. Experimenting with 808s, R&B-inspired sounds, and upbeat sonics, Danny co-wrote with hitmakers Steve Robson and Wayne Hector, along with bandmate Glen Power. The result is ‘Satellites,’ a collection of uplifting songs that pave the way for The Script’s future while keeping Mark’s spirit alive.

Danny explains, “The album cover features silhouettes of me, Glen, and our bassist Ben Sargeant. There’s also a hooded silhouette representing Mark. He’ll always be part of us, but it also points to the future. We’re moving forward, making more great music, and keeping Mark’s legacy alive.”

‘Satellites’ is available for pre-order/pre-save HERE. The album comes in various formats, including a limited edition hardback book CD, black vinyl, and standard CD. The Script’s official store also offers a limited edition white vinyl, cassette, and new merchandise.
