Scottish legends Travis are back and all guns blazing with brand new single, ‘A Ghost’.
The track is the first taste of brilliant new music from their emotionally charged & deeply heartfelt forthcoming ninth studio album 10 Songs – out October 9 on BMG.
‘A Ghost’ arrives with a stunning animated video directed and drawn by Fran Healy, with his son Clay leading the beautiful cinematography work – all done whilst in isolation.

It’s been twenty-five years since the four members of Travis first set foot in a Glaswegian rehearsal room. At various points along the trajectory between then and now, the band have sold millions of albums, they’ve been the subject of the award-winning feature length documentary ‘Almost Fashionable’ and Fran has elicited acclaim from Paul McCartney, Elton John and Graham Nash – all songwriters whose ability to divine a timeless melody out of thin air has sustained them through the decades.
The band now enter a new chapter in their extraordinarily prolific and unflappable career. ‘10 Songs’ is yet another body of work that showcases Travis as one of the UK’s finest songwriting exports.
To sum it up, Fran says beautifully; “There’s a song on the record called ‘Butterflies’. And that’s really how I think about songwriting. These things are floating around. And you have to be very quiet, and be very quick, and be very respectful. You catch them, you look at them for a little while, and then you set them free again. And that’s the whole point of songs. That’s the point of songwriting.”
