Irish alt-pop trio The Script have been announced for next year’s Eden Sessions at the Eden Project in Cornwall.

The band are riding high after their sixth studio album Sunsets & Full Moons reached number one in the charts last month (November 2019). They will play in front of the Eden Biomes on Wednesday July 15, 2020.

Having returned with the emotive first single The Last Time, Sunsets & Full Moons is the sound of The Script, namely Danny O’Donoghue (vocals, piano, guitar), Mark Sheehan (vocals, guitars) and drummer Glen Power - focusing on the inclusive, uplifting songwriting that helped them become an arena-filling band with a fervent fan base the world over.

Danny O’Donoghue, who is also well known as a coach on the first two series of The Voice UK, rates the new album the most poignant they have ever made.

He said: “Our music was always about being together with the audience, and writing about your own feelings, and sharing them.”

The band have again embraced the unifying power of the simple things - killer hooks, insistent melodies and stirring sentiments. They opted to produce the album themselves with help from mixing master and old friend Mark ‘Spike’ Stent, plus Manny Marroquin and Dan Frampton.

Rita Broe, managing director of Eden Sessions Ltd, said: “With such a charismatic frontman in Danny and a fabulous catalogue of songs, The Script are tailor-made for the Eden Sessions. We are honoured to be able to announce them for 2020 and confident that this will be one of the highlights of the summer.”

The Eden Sessions enter their 19th year in 2020. Last year’s epic line-up saw Stereophonics, Nile Rodgers & Chic, Liam Gallagher, The Chemical Brothers and Kylie Minogue (two nights) play the Eden stage. Also, to mark the 100th Session, Nile Rodgers and Doves led a galaxy of stars at a special anniversary concert.

Tickets to The Script Eden Session on July 15, 2020, cost £50 plus £5 booking fee and are on sale to members of the Inside Track club from 12 noon today, Thursday December 5, and go on general sale at 4pm on Tuesday December 10 on www.edensessions.com.

In September (2019) The Eden Project and global live events company AEG Presents announced a new partnership, Eden Sessions Ltd, to run the Eden Sessions.
