The Script sign global deal with BMG


The Script are set to embark upon a fresh chapter in their hugely successful career with the news that they have signed a new global deal with BMG. In their sixteen-year history, The Script have become one of the world’s biggest international bands. Their global streaming tally is at 10 billion and continues to grow, with 24.5 million monthly listeners at Spotify alone, while further global highlights include six #1 albums in the UK, seven #1 albums in Ireland, and two Platinum-certified singles in the US. Their following is equally as strong in the live arena, with over 4 million tickets sold throughout the course of their career.

Jamie Nelson, SVP at BMG New Recordings, commented, “We’re very excited to be working with The Script. Their music has always travelled and connected globally.”

Alistair Norbury, President, Repertoire & Marketing, BMG UK said, “We are honoured to have partnered with The Script and look forward to harnessing the excitement that the new album has created amongst our global teams.”

The band’s managers, Simon Moran and Martin Hall at Hall or Nothing, added, “We’re looking forward to working with BMG on a global level to continue and grow the enormous success The Script has achieved in their career to date.”

The Script’s Danny O’Donoghue stated, “BMG and The Script are a match made in heaven. Alistair, Jamie and the whole team have been so hands-on, matching our passion to deliver great music and our ambition to make huge waves in the music business and live scene.”

Consisting of founder members Danny O’Donoghue and Glen Power, The Script are moving forward to honour the tragic loss of their bandmate Mark Sheehan last year. Their upcoming touring plans include a run of UK stadium shows in June as special guests to P!NK. The tour continues into Europe throughout the summer, ahead of North American dates which run from August until late October.
