Due on September 15, Busted 2.0 will feature brand new song Good One, plus re-recorded versions of the trio’s biggest hits alongside live and fan favourites from 2002’s Busted and 2003’s A Present For Everyone.
Various deluxe formats will include previously unreleased collaborations with McFly, James Arthur, You Me At Six, The Vamps, Bowling For Soup, Dashboard Confessional, Deaf Havana, Wheatus and Charlotte Sands. A new take on Year 3000 with the Jonas Brothers is out now.
Absolute Label Services senior label manager Fraser Ealey said: “This is a really unique project that celebrates Busted’s legacy with the help of some exciting household names. Personally, I have worked with Busted on their 2016 Pigs Can Fly comeback tour and again recently with Charlie Simpson on his solo album Hope Is A Drug. Absolute has a long-standing relationship with Prestige Management. We’re a great team and look forward to getting stuck in with this great album.”
