Busted pick Mark Ron­son would be dream pro­ducer

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Busted want Mark Ron­son to pro­duce their next al­bum. The trio - Char­lie Simp­son, Matt Wil­lis and James Bourne - have started work on the fol­low-up to their 2016 come­back LP 'Night Driver' and have a hand­ful of songs ready. The boys have started search­ing for pro­duc­ers who can help them con­struct their new record and top of their wish list is Ron­son who has crafted hits with the likes of Lily Allen, Du­ran Du­ran, the late Amy Wine­house, Bruno Mars and most re­cently Queens of the Stone Age. Speak­ing to BANG Show­biz, Matt, 34, said: "It would be amaz­ing to work with Mark Ron­son, he would be a fan­tas­tic pro­ducer for us, ab­so­lutely bril­liant. He's got a stu­dio in King's Cross in Lon­don but he's never there! What I like is some­one else bring­ing their en­ergy into the stu­dio. What he's done with Queens of the Stone Age is just amaz­ing, I love that record." Char­lie wants the next LP to "bridge" the sound between Busted's new elec­tro rock sound and the pop punk style of their early 2000s hits such as 'Air Host­ess', 'Crashed the Wed­ding' and 'Year 3000'. And the 32-year-old singer-and-gui­tarist is con­fi­dent the boys can achieve their goal and give their fans what they want. He said: "We want to bridge the gap between old Busted and new Busted. We love 'Night Driver' and how it sounds, but with the next record we want to go for a mix of the two eras, have more gui­tar on it for sure. If we can bridge those two things it will be great be­cause 'Night Driver' feels like one thing and old Busted feels like an­other thing so we want to merge the two to­gether." Last week, Busted rocked 30,000 fans at the MTV Crashes Ply­mouth live mu­sic event. High­lights of their per­for­mance and sets from Charli XCX, Louisa John­son, Clean Ban­dit and Sigma can be seen on MTV Mu­sic on Friday 11 Au­gust at 8pm.
