The Script have released the music video for their new single “Arms open”.
The gospel-like ballad was co-written with The Messengers, who are a Canadian songwriting and producing duo comprising singer/lyricist Nasri Atweh and multi-instrumentalist/arranger Adam Messinger.
The emotional video, directed by Frank Borin (Bon Jovi, Hurts, Nathan Sykes), features real-life stories and footage of people helped by US charity A Sense of Home.
About this collaboration, Danny & co. said: “For us, this is more than just a music video. Like the song itself, we wanted to reach out to as many people as possible, people who have been less fortunate in life, giving them a platform to tell their stories. On researching the ideas for the video, we came across so many charities, and while they are all doing such great work, we were immediately inspired by A Sense Of Home and wanted to show support and build awareness. This organisation offered a real solution that could be rolled out across the world, particularly in Ireland where this problem is so prevalent. Share it wide and share it proud with arms open. Danny, Mark & Glen”
