Busted are currently doing the pop-punk rounds: following their collab with Simple Plan on Loser Kid 2.0, this time they’re teaming up with Neck Deep.

The two British bands have joined forces on an ace new version of Busted fan-favourite Meet You There – originally taken from the trio’s second album A Present For Everyone.

“This is one of the tracks we are most excited about releasing, as we have recorded an entirely new arrangement of the song,” enthuses Busted’s Charlie Simpson. “The original was an acoustic ballad and this new version is a balls-out rock explosion! We are also so happy to have done this with Neck Deep. Ben [Barlow] sounds awesome on it and what is extra special is he told me this was one of his fave Busted songs when he was growing up.”

Ben shares, “We’re stoked to feature on Meet You There! It’s kind of a full-circle moment for myself and Seb especially. When we were like eight and 10 years old my big sister took us to see Busted in Manchester Arena, and that was the first show we ever went to. Fast forward 20 years and I’m featuring on my favourite song of theirs! Wild. The re-work of the song is really cool too, and we had a blast making it. Busted have been really cool the whole way and I’m stoked to re-live the experience that eight-year-old me had back then!”
