English pop rock band Busted have announced “Half way there”, their first album since 2016’s “Night driver”. It’s out February 9 2019.
Lead single is “Nineties”, a track produced by the legendary Gil Norton (Foo Fighters, Pixies, Feeder).
“This was the first song we wrote that ended up on the album” said lead guitarist Charlie Simpson. “And from then on, it was like a domino effect – everything else came pretty easily after that. It’s great that it’s going to be the first thing that fans hear because it’s an important part of the journey”.
“Half way there” consists of ten tracks including a cover of the James Bourne song “What happened to your band?”.
About the album, Matt Willis said: “We purposefully made a fanbase record. We went into the studio focused on making the most perfect Busted fan album. With Night Driver we really made an album just for the band, a lot of fans loved it, but for a lot of fans it wasn’t the Busted they knew or really wanted. But this album is.”
