Artist News Releases

Busted announce comeback album

By | Published on Monday 12 September 2016


Busted have announced that they will release their first album for thirteen years, titled ‘Night Driver’, on 11 Nov.

“As soon as we started making music it became very apparent that we all wanted to make exactly the same thing”, says Matt Willis. “We’d been listening to dance and pop producers like Skrillex and Max Martin who both started off in rock bands.”

“The last thing we wanted to do was try to recreate what we used to have”, adds Bourne. “It belongs to that time. All real artists evolve, all real artists try things, it’s unnatural not to”.

And don’t forget Charlie Simpson, who is also in Busted. He says: “On this record we’re older, we’ve had completely different experiences than what we’d have been talking about ten years ago. It’s an authentic reflection of who we are today”.

Not quite sure what they’re trying to say. Does this album sound exactly like the music they were making before they split up? They should be more clear. Anyway, here’s 22 seconds of music from the new album:
