Travis release dynamic new track, ‘Valentine’, following the announcement that their eagerly anticipated new album, ’10 Songs’.
The record will be released on October 9 on BMG, with the latest single coming after the release of its well received, emotionally charged predecessor,‘A Ghost’.
Written by lead vocalist Fran Healy and co-produced by Fran and Robin Baynton, ‘Valentine’ possesses a sizzling energy and a spark that burns bright in the contrast between Fran’s soft, soothing vocals and Andy Dunlop’s heavy guitar lines.
Listen to ‘Valentine’ by Travis on the Official Fantasy Premier League playlist on Spotify.
Co-produced by both Fran and Baynton (Coldplay, Florence & The Machine), and
recorded at RAK Studios as 2019 turned into 2020, 10 Songs is an album about
the way life comes at love and what love does to weather those challenges.
It’s been twenty-five years since the four members of Travis – Fran Healy, Andy
Dunlop, Dougie Payne, Neil Primrose – first set foot in a Glaswegian rehearsal room. At various points along the trajectory between then and now.
Today we release ‘Valentine’. It’s the best recording of us rocking out ever! Douglas Gordon, International Turner prize winner, has created a limited edition 10” vinyl of the track which is available only from our store NOW!
