In the year that has seen the band celebrate the 20th anniversary of their breakthrough year, Travis have released their captivating new single ‘Kissing In The Wind’. The track, which was premiered on the Radio 2 Breakfast Show, is the band’s first new music since 2016.
Written and produced by front man Fran Healy and mixed by Darrel Thorpe, ‘Kissing In The Wind’ was recorded at RAK Studios in London during September 2019. Originally recorded as a demo to feature in the band’s critically acclaimed film ‘Almost Fashionable – A Film About Travis’, the track, wrapped with Fran’s infectious poignant melodies and a beautiful string arrangement, grew into a single across the band’s 2018 tour.
Speaking of the track Fran said, “’Kissing In The Wind’ is the first song from our next studio album. We rehearsed the song while on ‘The Man Who Tour’ last year and it came together really quickly.”
‘Almost Fashionable – A Film About Travis’, which won the ‘Audience Award’ at the coveted 2018 Edinburgh International Film Festival, follows the band on tour in Mexico in 2016 alongside journalist Wyndham Wallace, whose past disdain for the band is on public record, resulting in an amusing view from one of the band’s most reluctant fans. It airs for the first time on Sky Arts at 10.00pm on December 7th.
