The Return Of Travis - Win New LP 'Where You Stand'
Travis, one of the UK's best known bands, return after a five year hiatus with their seventh album 'Where You Stand', out August 19th on their own re-launched label Red Telephone Box via Kobalt Label Services. With two No.1 LPs, five Top Ten singles, two Brit Awards and more than 8 million record sales, Travis are looking to the top once again!
The album kicks into gear immediately with 'Mother' - a bracing rush of harmonic pop with a chiming piano solo. It is soon followed by the nu-wavey guitars and drums of the instantly anthemic 'Moving' and doesn't let up with the charmingly emotive first single and LP title track 'Where You Stand'. This stunning collection of songs is brought to a dramatic conclusion by cinematic piano ballad 'The Big Screen'.
Written and recorded across London, Norway, New York, and taking in a production stint at Berlin's legendary Hansa Studios (as enjoyed particularly by Bowie-fanatic Payne, who revelled in layering famous synthesisers of Low fame onto 'A Different Room'), the band ended up recording the songs on the same sound desk that produced both 'Ok Computer' and their own breakthrough album 'The Man Who'.
