“massive comeback single… one heck of an almighty return” - Digital Spy

“a great song” - Popjustice

“Busted’s miraculous new song sounds just like Daft Punk” - Metro

Charlie said, “We can't wait for people to hear this song and be able to share what we have been working so hard on for the past twelve months.”

Now, with a decade of experiences and newly discovered influences behind them, the two-time BRIT Award winning trio reunited in the studio almost by accident discovered they each had a fresh perspective both personally and musically. “As soon as we started making music it became very apparent that we all wanted to make exactly the same thing,” Matt says. “That’s what made it so easy. Once James got on the Juno-60 we were like, ‘this is the sound of our record, this is exactly the kind of record I wanna make’.”

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

Though stylistically unrecognisable and far darker around the edges, "Night Driver" is still the vivid hook riot you would expect from Busted, as vivacious in their early thirties as they were in their teens, and the band are itching to present it to the world. Think you know Busted? Listen again.

James, Matt and Charlie first broke onto the music scene in 2002 with their tongue-in-cheek ode to Matt’s school teacher Miss MacKenzie, ‘What I Go To School For.’ Within just two years the three-piece had become the biggest band in the country, with four number one singles, two triple platinum albums, a total of five million records sold, and over 750,000 ticket sales including and a record-breaking run of thirteen Wembley Arena shows.
