With less than a month to go until the release of their new album Half Way There, Busted have treated fans to a new single called ‘Radio’.
The nostalgia-filled track is a heartfelt offering which sees James Bourne, Matt Willis and Charlie Simpson reflect on how life can change over the years and how a song you hear on the radio can evoke certain memories.
Whilst the track was originally written about the band missing home during tour time, ‘Radio’ is a song we can all relate to. We all have that one song which brings back memories of a time gone by, whether that be a past friendship, relationship, or a specific moment in your life.
Speaking about ‘Radio’, James said: “It’s talking about the memories that you used to share with someone when listening to the radio.”
“Listening to the radio can evoke nostalgic reactions, and when a song comes on it can really take you back to that moment,” added Charlie “But when the song reminds you of losing that person, what would’ve been a good feeling suddenly feels very empty.”
‘Radio’ comes accompanied by a video directed by Rankin, who previously worked with Busted on the press images for their 2016 reunion tour, and their recent ‘Nineties’ music video.

‘Radio’ follows on from ‘Nineties’, ‘Reunion’ and ‘All My Friends’, which form part of Busted’s upcoming fourth studio album Half Way There. The album is available to pre-order now and will be released on February 1.
Busted will be celebrating their album release with a UK arena tour in March. The tour, which will introduce their new touring drummer Eddy Thrower (Lower Than Atlantis), will stop off in Glasgow, Cardiff, Manchester, Birmingham and London. Full date and ticket information can be found here.
