Watch Charlie Simpson Perform His New Track Long Road Home Unplugged
Charlie is a long road from his Busted and Fightstar days as the "raw and stripped back" title track from his new solo album shows...
"Long Road Home is probably my favourite song on the album," says Charlie Simpson, when we sit down to chat about the world premiere of its unplugged video.
"I just love the harmonies. My favourite thing in music is harmonies and I really wanted to take them to the next level on this album."
As the title track from his new record, which is set for release on August 4th, Charlie is clearly pleased with the finished song - a complete departure from his Fightstar and Busted days.
"We did this session in my label's studio and Long Road Home is my favourite track of the session, so I'm glad that's the one MTV is premiering," he says.
"I definitely feel more exposed with acoustic music in general. When you're playing in a rock environment with distorted guitars everything gets disguised.
"This was much more raw and stripped back."
