Fran Healy, lead singer and main songwriter of hugely successful rock band Travis, will release of his debut solo album WRECKORDER.
Set for an October 4th release on Healyâ€™s own â€˜wreckordLABELâ€™ in association with ADA Global, WRECKORDER is quintessential pop from a songwriter at the top of his game.
Known for songs such as â€œAll I Wanna Do Is Rockâ€, â€œWhy Does It Always Rain On Me?â€, â€œDriftwoodâ€ and â€œSingâ€ to name but a few, Healy once again exemplifies his exceptional song writing prowess in this beguiling collection of songs.
Recorded in Berlin, New York and Vermont, the 10 tracks that make up the record include the commanding melodies of first single â€œButtercupsâ€, a duet with US breakthrough songstress Neko Case on the gloriously laid back â€œSing Me To Sleepâ€, the soaring â€œIn The Morningâ€ and the teasing but serious â€œMoonshineâ€.
Holiday by Fran Healy
Notably the dramatic waltz of â€œAs It Comesâ€ features Sir Paul McCartney on bass – Healy repaid Macca for his efforts by turning vegetarian.
WRECKORDER is the sound of a songwriter who continues to artistically evolve.
