Busted & Neck Deep Team Up for New Version “Meet You There 2.0”
British pop punk band Busted teamed up with Welsh-based pop punk band Neck Deep to release a new version of “Meet You There” called “Meet You There 2.0” on May 5, 2023.
The original version is featured on their 2003 second studio album “A Present for Everyone”.
The reworked version follows up the reimagined track “Loser Kid 2.0” featuring Simple Plan, which was released last month.
Both songs will appear on their upcoming reworked greatest hits album as a celebration of Busted's 20th anniversary.
It was written by James Bourne and Charlie Simpson.
Busted's Charlie Simpson said of the song, “This is one of the tracks we are most excited about releasing, as we have recorded an entirely new arrangement of the song. The original was an acoustic ballad and this new version is a balls-out rock explosion!”
He added, “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.”
- Neck Deep's Ben Barlow said, “It's kind of a full-circle moment for myself and Seb (Neck Deep's bassist) 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.”
He continued, “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.”
