    ..most famously know for fronting British pop sensation Busted, Charlie has taken a huge U-turn musically since they split back in January 2005. He is the lead vocalist, guitarist and co-songwriter in alternative rock band Fightstar. (who are brilliant IMO!)

    But recently Charlie has embarked on a solo career, after Fightstar announced a hiatus at the beginning of 2010. Fightstar plan to reform as a band in 2012 to release new music.

    If you visit charliesimpsonmusic.com you will be able to download Charlies brand new EP that includes a demo version of the lead singled from the new album that'll be released in the summer entitled Young Pilgrim.

    Tracklist:
    Down Down Down (Demo) - set to be lead single
    Thorns (Demo)
    Sundown (which will also feature on the album)

    I absolutely adore Fightstar. His solo stuff isn't really up my ally, but its good for what it is.

    Charlie performed his new single 'Down Down Down' here at Secret Sessions, along with an interview where he confesses his rather amusing secret! Check it out here:
