The Script will release Hall of Fame, the first single from their upcoming album #3, on August 21. The album will be released on October 9.
Hall of Fame was written by the band (Danny O"Donoghue, Mark Sheehan and Glen Power) and features will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas.
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!"
