  • Travis Announces New Album “L.A. Times”, Premieres New Song “Gaslight” on BBC Radio 2

  • Scottish rock band Travis, consisting of Andy Dunlop (lead guitar), Neil Primrose (drums), Fran Healy (vocals/rhythm guitar), Dougie Payne (bass), has announced their tenth studio album “L.A. Times” will be released on July 12, 2024 via BMG.


    The album is their first body of work in four years since the 2024 album “10 Songs” and comprises a 10-track.
    Also the album arrives 25 years since their number one album “The Man Who”.
    It is a personal album, inspired by Los Angeles, where the band frontman Fran Healy has lived for the last decade.

    Fran Healy said of the album, “L.A. Times is our most personal album since The Man Who. There was a lot of big stuff to write about back then, the tectonic plates had shifted in my life. I was 22 when I was writing those songs. They were my therapy. Over 20 years later and the plates have shifted again. There's a lot to talk about.”
  • From the album, the band premiered the first single called “Gaslight” along with a music video on BBC Radio 2 The Zoe Ball Breakfast Show.
    The track was written by Fran Healy and produced by Tony Hoffer. The music video was directed by Fran Healy.

    Fran Heal said of the song, “I read a few weeks ago that gaslighting was the most web searched word in the world. We are living in a time where our realities are being warped by bosses, leaders, friends, teachers and politicians.”
    He continued, “It really is everywhere. Gaslighters want to control you. They tell you things which undermine your confidence in yourself and make you question reality and it makes you feel like you're going crazy.”


  • Fran Heal told Zoe Ball bout the song, “First thing it's called 'Gaslight' and I think it's having played it a few times to different folk friends and whatnot. I don't think I've met one person that hasn't been gasped with. It seems to be a thing that's kind of going from the classrooms, to offices, politicians, and nonsense. So it seems to be a thing that's that. But it's again, personal song. And it's about trying to sort of get away from that, because life's too short.”
