Irish pop rockers The Script are back with a new album after two year hiatus. However, the title of one track in particular on that album definitely caught our attention this week. 

So we asked the guys (Danny O'Donoghue, Mark Sheehan Glen Power) about that song, which is titled "Divided States of America." The song appears on their Freedom Child album, which dropped on September 1. 

"It's not a political song," the band's lead singer, Danny O'Donoghue, explains in the video below. "It's just more a love song to America than anything else." 

O'Donoghue says that the guys grew up loving America. "We're not on the red side or on the blue side. We're not on the wrong or right side," he explained. "We're on the side of love." 

You can check out "Divided States of America" on the band's new album, Freedom Child. Click here to purchase the album now.
