Busted have unveiled their new single, titled 'Coming Home'. The song is the band's first new music in 12 years and sees a departure from their previous pop-punk sound.
The group reformed recently after a ten-year absence, with Charlie Simpson rejoining the after James Bourne and Matt Willis spent a period touring with fellow pop outfit McFly under the supergroup name of 'McBusted'.
Simpson - who once described the group as "torture" - previously talked up the band's new material, saying: "The new songs are really exciting. It's different to any of the stuff we've done before."
The synth-pop influenced new track 'Coming Home' is streaming online now. Watch its lyric video below.
During their original run, Busted released two multi-platinum albums and scored four Number One hits with 'You Said No', 'Crashed The Wedding', 'Who's David' and 'Thunderbirds'/'3AM' .
After Busted's split, Simpson's rock band Fightstar released three albums before going on hiatus in 2009. Simpson began to release solo material, including 2011 debut 'Young Pilgrim', but returned to Fightstar with a new album called 'Behind The Devil's Back', which was released last October.
