It’s been a memorable summer for The Script as they’ve been busy taking their Greatest Hits tour around the UK and Ireland, with highlights including huge shows at London’s O2, Edinburgh Castle and Dublin’s 3Arena. In Dublin they premiered the new song ‘Dare You To Doubt Me’, which received a rapturous reception on the night and resulted in fans flooding the band’s social media account to ask when the song would be released. Now the day is finally here as The Script release ‘Dare You To Doubt Me’.
The power of positivity that surges through The Script’s lyrics is a huge part of their appeal, and it’s something that ‘Dare You To Doubt Me’ has in abundance. The message is simple: if someone doubts you, don’t be disheartened – stay determined, do your best, and you’ll prove them wrong. It’s set to music which is just as uplifting, with Danny O’Donoghue’s soaring hook and feelgood flow complemented by rousing trumpets and sparkling piano.
Danny says, “With everything going on in the world we want to spread a positive message that no matter how hard things are, we’ll all come out the other end bigger, better and stronger. Don’t think so? Well, I dare you to doubt me!”
Danny and bandmate Mark Sheehan wrote ‘Dare You Doubt Me’ around the opening days of this summer’s arena tour, with co-writers and regular collaborators Jimbo Barry and David Lucius King as well as Toby Gad (John Legend’s ‘All Of Me’, Beyoncé’s ‘If I Were A Boy’). It was subsequently produced by Jimbo Barry, Danny and Mark.
The Script will return to the road later this month for shows in Australia and Asia before they tour Europe in November. Please see their website for a full list of dates and ticket information.
