Travis frontman Fran Healy has set an October 5th release date for of his debut solo album Wreckorder. Healy is currently on a North American tour with Keane.
The dates will see Healy performing this new material, as well as classic Travis songs, in a solo acoustic setting. In addition, Healy will play solo acoustic shows along the West Coast.
The album was recorded in Berlin, New York and Vermont, and the collection of songs includes the Neko Case duet "Sing Me To Sleep" which bounces over warm melodies and a syncopated drum loop, the soaring "In The Morning," the playful but serious "Moonshine," and the dramatic waltz of "As It Comes" which features Paul McCartney on bass. The end result is the sound of a songwriter who embodied the spirit of Britpop and continues to artistically evolve.
