The Script interview: New music, selfies and their best London accents

The Script! Yay! Woo woo woo lads. Did you ever think that
you would have sold 20 million records? No, I think it dumbfounds us every day that
the success – from our meagre beginnings to where we are today. I mean, I remember us
having 20 CDs to give away at our very first show, and we didn’t even sell them. We just
gave them away. We were left with 19. I think we were left with 19. Yeah, they all
got returned. It’s just been fantastic, you know, and again for all those people who invested
in us, we’re back. We’re back with a new album, and just to show that we’re in this for the
right reasons. We absolutely love music, and we’re back with No Sound Without Silence, and the
first single is Superheroes off that as well. Really super positive song because we’re feeling
great right now. And by the way, the single. I’m not just saying
it. It is ridiculous. You’ve absolutely nailed it. Thank you. In fact, I wanted to sing you a little bit
of a song. Go on. Go for it. Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power Well, I want you on my team. I mean, that is… Is that kind of because
your surname’s Power? Is that a bit of a punny? Or is it just like It is me. Irish Power, yes. Power is the pain. He has a tattoo of them.
They met me, and his name is Power. You know what I’m saying? So we had to put it in the
song. Glen Power! Yeah-ha! Superpower. Yeah yeah. So the super thing, the superpower thing,
is because you went on stage and you realised that you had lots of power? No no. I think it’s we get to meet an awful
lot of fans, an awful lot of people up the road. We’re one of those bands that we are
a lifestyle band, which is quite different to an awful lot of bands out there. People
turn to The Script music because they may be going through a break up that’s usually when you
find us, or like in Hall of Fame when you want some motivation. It’s nice to have an
escape, but it’s also nice to have a song that empowers them a little bit, and for us
it’s the average people doing extraordinary things that are our superheroes. I guess the song
was just a tip of the hat of us creating that energy coming off stage, but also wanting
to say to people, you know, if someone’s going to knock you down, knock you down, knock you
down every time. You’re just going to get stronger if you can stick through it. Okay, so going cliché. Superheroes. If we
could take two and blend them into one to make some mega-heroes super thing. I’m blending Catwoman with Wonder Woman to
make some kind of Wonder Cat. Yeah. Oh, I’m just thinking this. I’m thinking this as well, yeah. With Wonder Woman, you take the bra off, you
wonder where they’ve gone. Clever. It’s Wonderbras. It’s Wonderbras. Isn’t it
that you take them off, you wonder where they’ve gone? Isn’t that what a Wonderbra is? I’ve got to touch on it. It’s probably really
boring, but The Voice. Is it a little bit like watching your ex-girlfriend with a brand
new boyfriend on TV? Only the boyfriend’s uglier than the last
one, so… Yeah, I know what you’re saying. Do you know what I mean? With Ricky all sitting
in your chair. Like I said there was uglier than the last
one. Not at all. I genuinely am really… I enjoyed
it this season as well. I enjoyed getting Saturday nights back in fairness. Do you know
what I mean? They did a great job on the show, and oh what a move for Will as well winning
this year. Totally. I texted him straight after literally as it was going on. You only won because I wasn’t there. It’s exactly what I said. That’s the way the text went. I’ve met Will before, and he’s just a little
bit woah. He’s kind of a little bit like a robot. Does he text like a robot as well? No. Well kinda yeah. He’s very short with
them, so they’ll be like one word answers. Thanks, smiley face. Or you don’t get that. You just get
a smiley face. If I went through all the texts I have with Will, probably about half of them
would just be smiley face. I wonder if you add them all together, would
you get a whole email out of them? Probably. A sentence. You’d get a full sentence. It’d be quite cool to put that together. But congratulations as well because he’s number
on this week. Smashing it. It’s my birthday. Smashing it. With America by the way, you’re absolutely
killing it. You must have got some cool selfies along the way. Can we have like a favourite
selfie? Favourite selfie. Jennifer Aniston I got one. That was cool. Paul McCartney was amazing. She looks lovely in person too because some
don’t. She looks really good. She is lovely in person. Can you tell me who didn’t look so nice, or
is that really mean? That would be mean if I did that. It’d be honest. No, we can’t really. Who didn’t look so nice? You don’t have to think that hard about it. Who? Or do you know of someone off the top of your
head or something? I know exactly. I remember when and all. Go on you may as well tell her, break the
news first. Ah yeah, don’t say that, she will definitely
see this. Don’t say that. OK, don’t say that. I want to get a selfie with Obama. That’s
what I want. That’d be awesome. Or the Pope. I bet he’s probably got one of those long
poles he carries around with him. Yeah, just to get the distance yeah. It’s so like the Pope, the Queen or Obama.
Just one you’d never ever expect. Like me and the Queen. Selfie! Has the Pope done a selfie? I wonder, has
he? No, but I saw the Dalai Lama do one the other
day. It looked awesome. He did. He did a selfie the other day with
somebody in the audience. It was wicked looking. Cool, and guys, we touched on it a bit earlier.
Come on. Give me your best accent, your London accent. I want to make you look good. Come
on. What a geezer. Where are you going, love? Why is it that everyone turns into Oliver
Twist when they do this? Because you have to do it. it’s the only one
we know. You start to sound like your man from Mary
Poppins. What’s his name? Dick Van Dyke. Dick Van Dyke, yeah. Mary Poppins! Give me your best Irish. So anyway, I was just really tired right now,
and I really want to go into bed and have an Irish coffee. That sounded American. Not quite sure why I turned into a stretch
armstrong right there. Say potato once even in that, and it might
sound Irish. Why did your tuck your chin in like? I want
to know why this happened. You have more chins than a Chinese phonebook. No you did when
you did that. You look lovely, and then you did that. She actually sounded American. Well you know, it’s kinda similar. Well thanks so much guys. You’re going to
be brilliant and love the new single. Thank you so much. High five Script!
