Following its first play on the Zoe Ball Breakfast Show this morning, Travis have unveiled the Fran Healy-directed video to their stellar new single The Only Thing featuring Susanna Hoffs of The Bangles. The track is the fourth to be taken from their eagerly anticipated new album, 10 Songs, which will be released on October 9th on BMG.
Of the video, Fran comments; “This is definitely my Covideo. One of the main prerequisites was to somehow get us all on the same stage and try to capture the spontaneity of a duet while the performers are in different locations. Leading up to the shoot, I would send Susanna a video of a great duet. Summer Wine, I Got You Babe, Islands In The Stream. I hired a small film crew and persuaded Glasgow’s Theatre Royal to open its doors to us. I directed the shoot remotely, via three phones. One in the DP’s ear, one FaceTime trained on the monitor and one iPhone with the band. There were so many moving parts. I’m amazed we got there and it turned out great.”
2021 will also welcome the band back on the road with an extensive UK headline tour including a big London show at The Roundhouse.
The band will perform at the 02 Academy in Leeds on May 7th 2021.
