Khaleej Times - City Times - - TOP TUNES AND MORE -

Rock band The Script would love to get to know singer Ri­hanna and col­lab­o­rate with her.

Drum­mer Glen Power said it would be “awe­some” to team up with Ri­hanna on a track, but only if it was “organic”, re­ports fe­male­first. co.uk.

“It would be amaz­ing to work with Ri­hanna. Wouldn’t that be so awe­some? We are al­ways open to work­ing with any­body. We al­ways feel that it has to be organic. Usu­ally for us, it’s usu­ally be­cause we bumped into some­body at an air­port and we just got talk­ing,” he told told Bang Show­biz.

“It’s never put to­gether clin­i­cally, it’s al­ways in an organic way, whether that is hang­ing out with some­one at a fes­ti­val or go­ing for drinks with them and get­ting on as peo­ple, that is usu­ally where a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­gins. We’ve been off the map for a lit­tle while, so maybe when we are back out and we are mov­ing around we might start bump­ing into some cool peo­ple again.”

De­fend­ing the band’s de­par­ture from straight-up pop rock and dis­cussing their fans’ re­sponse to their fresh sound, Power said: “We felt maybe we would try and dip our toe ... with our sin­gle Rain that is our first of a kind song that you can really dance to.

“It’s in­ter­est­ing when we play that and they do dance, it’s like wow to see that re­sponse. We just tried some­thing dif­fer­ent. At the end of the day, it’s still The Script, the con­tent is sim­i­lar and the themes are of love, loss and heartache.

“It’s all the same of what we are, it’s still a band, they are drums and gui­tars. We have leaned a lit­tle bit dif­fer­ent and that ini­tially shocked a lot of peo­ple. We are still The Script, we are just putting on a dif­fer­ent coat that is all.” The Script’s sec­ond sin­gle
