Prestige Management has partnered with Absolute Label Services for the release of Busted’s new greatest hits album. The release sees the band re-recording old songs with guests including Jonas Brothers, McFly, Hanson, You Me At Six and Wheatus.

“This is a really unique project that celebrates Busted’s legacy with the help of some exciting household names”, says Absolute Label Services Senior Label Manager Fraser Ealey.

“Personally, I have worked with Busted on their 2016 ‘Pigs Can Fly’ comeback tour and again recently with Charlie Simpson on his solo album ‘Hope Is A Drug’ release”, he goes on. “Absolute has a long-standing relationship with Prestige Management. We’re a great team and look forward to getting stuck in with this great album”.

Prestige Management’s Richard Rashman adds: “We have a proven track record with Absolute Label Services. Working alongside them gives us the flexibility and control that we require across our projects, allowing us to achieve real results with our clients”.

Under the partnership, Absolute will provide a range of services to Busted and their management team, including distribution, marketing and project management. ‘Greatest Hits 2.0’ is set for release on 15 Sep.
