The Script’s latest single ‘Hall Of Fame’, featuring Danny’s fellow The Voice judge Will.i.am was recently released and has been playing in our office ever since. However, what were the inspirations behind the eagerly-awaited comeback single? Entertainmentwise sat down with the band’s frontman Danny O’Donoghue to find out.
And although majority of The Script’s previous tracks have been rather soppy and love-related, it seems like they may have changed musical direction a little bit with their latest track, as Danny says it’s ‘Olympics-inspired’.
The cute Irishman told us, “There was this group of people running a 4k run, obviously for some kind of charity but they were running it like the Olympics, like they were going for gold and it was such an inspiring time we were all getting ready for the Olympics and a song like this could really take this matter on further.”

He added, “We didn’t really write it with the Olympics in mind or for it to be any kind of Olympics song, but it stands out against the type of music that’s out there now.
"There are great artists out there, Adele and Ed Sheeran – that’s why they stick out so much because the other music out there is just a little bit below par compared to their amazing songs. They have a lot more depth about stuff that actually matters.”
Oo, little dig there at modern day artists? Is anyone out there NOT a fan of Adele or Mr. Sheeran? It doesn't seem like it...
