It's no secret political leanings in America are divided. In fact, they're more than just that, they're divisive.
And, that fact isn't lost on anyone within eyeshot of a television or newspaper worldwide.
So, it shouldn't be surprising that a massively successful band that has spent a lot of time in the U.S., that has a legion of dedicated fans and that is not afraid of using its voice/fame/platform to lament the current state of the States would write a song titled "Divided States of America."
The Script knows it may seem odd to some, an Irish band writing such a song. However, its members are adamant in the fact that "it's not a political song... it's a love song to America."
We're on the side of love.
"Freedom Child," the current album by The Script, is out now. Click HERE to see more from our interview with the band.
