The Script Ready To Release New Single, Album In September
Yesterday, Irish Rockers The Script unveiled their new single "For The First Time," from their upcoming second LP entitled Science + Faith. The Single comes out in the UK on September 5th, followed by the album's release on September 13th. MAN - it's so hard to believe that their self titled album was first released in Europe in 2008! The boys JUST exploded here in the U.S., where their single "Breakeven" peaked at #12 on the Billboard Hot 100 and their album peaked at #64 on the Billboard 200. I can't imagine HOW ready these guys are to start doing some new material on stage.
"For The First Time" is a safe first single. Maybe too safe. It sounds a bit too much like anything else the boys have ever released, only not as good. I feel like with "Breakeven," "The Man Who Can't Be Moved" and "Before The Worst," there was at least something going on, melodically. Something interesting. Something different. Something pleasing to the ear. Of course there's a melody here and it's perfectly pleasant but it's nothing that sets the song apart from any other pop/rock song on the radio. I'd almost rather listen to Train. Come on boys! Give us something different! Listen to the song and tell me what you think!
