After almost three long years, Irish rock band The Script is back with a new song and a new sound with “Rain.”
The band released the single and its official music video, July 14, following weeks of teasing the fans for their comeback.
“Rain,” unlike anything they have released before, included festive, almost party-like beats.
In an exclusive interview with Metro, the band said that “revamping and rebooting” their sound was a response to the music scene’s changing times.
“We wanted to change our sound a (sic) push our sound a bit. It’s either adapt, change or die in this industry. It’s very difficult in this industry,” the band explained.
The band also credited the sound to their progression in the past two years.
“It’s been two years since we had something out so there’s two years worth of progression in our music. I’m sure to a lot of people it might sound quite drastic at first but if they heard the 60 songs we’ve put out you’d hear a slower progression,” they said.
Despite the new vibe, the song is just as heart-breaking as your favorite anthem from the band (Hello, “The Man Who Can’t Be Moved”) with lyrics talking about how it feels to be left by a lover.
And my heart’s turned cold since you left my life
And no matter where I go
Girl, I know if I’m alone, there ain’t no blue sky
I don’t know what I’m doing wrong
“At the end of the day we’re still the same songwriters and that’s never going to go away,” the band added.
The waiting game is not yet over, however, as the band has yet to announce their fifth album’s release date. (ASAP, please?)
Nevertheless, this is definitely the kind of rain that we like for this season.
