Travis reveal new album details

And they've recruited a special backing vocalist

Travis have teamed up with singer KT Tunstall for their next record.

The band have 20 songs for the new record, which is due next year.

Bassist Dougie Payne revealed: “We met (Tunstall) at one of the little club shows we did for the singles collection – the Cavern show in Liverpool. We feel very lucky that she agreed to come in and help us out. She’s astonishingly well pitched.”

The band have been working with Radiohead producer Nigel Goldrich , who worked on ‘The Man Who’ and ‘The Invisible Band’

“We’ve got about 20 songs recorded. It sounds like we’ve got two albums worth of material,” Payne told The Daily Record .
