New track 'Coming Around' will be the first taste of band's new album...
Travis release a brand new single ‘COMING AROUND’ on June 5 through Independiente. The song is previously unreleased and is taken from the band’s forthcoming, as-yet-untitled third album, due for release early next year.
Travis frontman Fran Healey told nme.com: “We were in a b-side session and we recorded it in half an hour and then we just went away. I got a phone call from our A&R man and he’s like ‘You c-! This is not a b-side! This is a hit!'”
“It’s brilliant. It’s three minutes long and it’s a really lovely pop song. It’s quite upbeat and I’ve been told it’s very different.”
Travis start working on the follow-up to last year’s chart-topping ‘The Man Who’ album in July with the same producer, Nigel Godrich.
Godrich produced the last record and is working with Radiohead on their new effort.
Another song that’s due to appear on the new album is titled ‘Flowers In The Window’.
Fran said: “It’s all about relationships. The common denominator that affects us all. Whether it be the relationship between this note and that note or between me and you or between a cat and a dog. I think that’s something we all have in common.”
Travis headline the Saturday at this year’s Glastonbury Festival at Pilton, Somerset on June 23-25. It’s also rumoured they’re to play the two V2000 Festivals on August 19-20 at Chelmsford and Staffordshire as well as T In The Park.
