Grian Chatten – vocalist of Dublin’s critically acclaimed band Fontaines D.C. – shares his debut solo single, "The Score".

Rare moments of respite from a relentless touring schedule granted Chatten the opportunity to start work on solo music.

"The Score" is accompanied with a video directed by Chatten's fiance Georgie Jesson.

Speaking of the song, Chatten explains: “"The Score" is a heavyweight bated breath of lust. I wrote it in Madrid between an electric fan and a dying plant and I intend to keep it there. It was inspired by sugar and sunset.”

In the past 12 months, Fontaines D.C. debuted at number one in both the UK and Ireland with their third album, the Ivor Novello-nominated Skinty Fia, as well as taking home the BRIT award for International Group of the Year. It followed 2020’s A Hero’s Death, which was nominated for Best Rock Album at the 2021 Grammys and their debut, 2019’s Dogrel, which was nominated for both the Mercury Music Prize and Ireland’s Choice Music Prize.

Fontaines D.C. recently released a cover of Nick Drake's "Cello Song".

"The Score" is out now via Partisan Records.
