O'Donoghue wants to get the people moving

Danny O'Donoghue is pleased The Script make music people can dance to.

The 'Man You Can't Be Moved' group are about to release third album '#3' and frontman Danny is excited there are more upbeat tunes than their last two LPs.

He said: "For ages, a Script song would be about singing your heart out in the car but you couldn't dance to a song.

"But there's a few songs on this album that you can put on in a bar now. 'Good Ol' Days' was inspired by our mates in Dublin. We go down the pub with them when we are home and we see what they say we should do next."

The band, also consisting of Mark Sheehan and Glen Power, worked with will.i.am on single 'Hall Of Fame' and they said they loved collaborating with him.

Speaking about the Black Eyed Peas star, who befriended Danny after they were both coaches on UK talent show 'The Voice', Mark said: "We were proud of getting him to work with us. I wanted our song but we weren't giving it away so told him to record it with us. Then Danny got him to a hotel and we recorded it there and then. I was terrified of losing the recording so went straight to the studio afterwards.

"will.i.am usually produces everything himself so we thought he was hardly going to let us produce him. But he did. He let us do it our way. There's none of that vocoder stuff he's known for. We make him sound natural."
