The lead single from the record is ‘Everyone Is My Friend’, which is available to download and stream now.
‘Safe Journey Home’ has been a long time coming for Bourne. He originally planned to release a solo album years ago and some of his songs ended up being recorded by McBusted in 2014.
“Music has given so much and it’s been a very natural way of life for me,” he explains. “There have been times when Busted weren’t killing it in arenas and in everyone’s face, but I was still making a living from my songs. I enjoy making music and writing songs. Now I’m doing the same thing I do in Busted, I’m just doing it without Busted.”
Bourne and his old friend, producer John Fields (Jimmy Eat World, Selena Gomez), co-wrote all ten of the album’s songs, and were joined on three tracks by the veteran hitmaker Stephen Bishop (whose countless hits include Phil Collins’ Oscar-nominated ‘Separate Lives’).
The album sleeve was designed by Los Angeles artist, graphic designer and owner of La-La Land Gallery Kii Arens.
The track list for ‘Safe Journey Home’ is:
- Everyone Is My Friend
- These Streets Know Me Well
