The Script – Danny O’Donoghue, Mark Sheehan and Glen Power – commented:
“Last year we cut short our Sunsets & Full Moons Tour due to the pandemic and found ourselves reflecting on the songs we had put in the set. A couple of them we put in because of the love they were getting from The Script Family both on streaming platforms and messages we were getting to play them live. It didn’t take much to channel our energy into giving back to The Script Family again with another acoustic EP, including ‘Millionaires’ and ‘For The First Time’.
News of ‘The Acoustic Sessions 2’ comes after Danny returned to our screens on ITV’s hit show ‘The Voice UK’. He has featured as a special guest mentor for will.i.am’s Team Will.
‘Sunsets & Full Moons’ continued The Script’s phenomenal and enduring success. It went straight to #1 on the UK’s Official Album Chart, making it their fifth record to top the charts and their third in a row. All six of their albums have hit #1 in Ireland, where they were honoured with the title Irish Act of the Decade 2010-2019 by the Official Irish Charts.
