Busted are all grown up now

When they reformed last year, Busted promised that their new material would be "different" to the airbrushed, sanitised teenrock of Air Hostess and You Said No and Year 3000. And the trio stayed true to their word: Their new single Coming Home is brooding and anthemic, like MGMT with a ring of Snow Patrol.

The lyrics "I'm coming home - I miss my family" will pluck at the heart strings of the band's indefatigable fan base; and, crucially if the band are to survive, it's going to sound great on Radio 2.

The only mis-step comes in the second verse. As crap lyrics go, "Went past the Taj Mahal / It's so fucking beautiful" is going to take some beating.

You can get the track in exchange for all of your personal data over on Busted's website.
