Editors’ Notes

Fran Healy is the lead singer of Travis, a band noted for the luminous beauty of its lead singer’s voice. For his first solo album, Healy plays most of the instruments himself, including drums. He invites Paul McCartney to play bass on the pleasantly orchestrated “As It Comes” and Neko Case contributes vocals to “Sing Me to Sleep.” Those combinations are noteworthy, but that isn’t to suggest Healy can’t handle it alone. This entire album is filled with the kind of trusty melodies that have made Travis one of the past decade’s finest bands. “Fly In the Ointment” is insistently catchy. “Buttercups” features an aching vocal that retells the story of a young Healy unable to afford buying flowers for his girlfriend. “In the Morning” turns to Healy’s darker side with a tension that is often buried by the joy of guitars. “Shadow Boxing,” with fiddle from Tom Hobden of Noah and the Whale and some elliptical piano notes, makes for an autumnal toss into memory lost and found. Healy, with and without band, is a formidable talent.

Customer Reviews

Lovely simplicity

This is one of those albums that pass unnoticed through release, however it is one of those you just cherish again and again, probably by yourself with a nice cup of tea or a drink of your choice. Fran´s famous songwriting ability is here showcased bare and simply adorned with strings, a duet, a Paul McCartney contribution and plenty of good melodies. It will charm you from its opening track all the way to the end! Buy this if you like Travis and/or if you like album of well-crafted songwriting and mellow delightful tunes. This is one album that sure suits the mood of the Fall season as well.

Travis fan

This album is an exact match of perfection of early Travis work. Well written as well as all other Travis albums. Fran Healy almost doesn't even need to be solo. It sounds almost identical to older Travis. I love the sound in this album and Fran Healy's voice is just amazing. I hope Travis will have more albums to come.


I heard Fran Healy live, and have since been waiting for this album to come out! I have literally been listening to "Anything" on repeat for days. It is so beautiful. The whole album is worth it.

Francis Healy is the frontman and main songwriter of Travis, one of the most successful Britpop groups of the late ‘90s and early 2000s. Born in England in 1973, he moved to Glasgow as a child and remained in Scotland for the entirety of his youth, eventually relocating to London as a 23 year-old alongside bandmates Andy Dunlop, Neil Primrose, and Dougie Payne. The four had already honed Travis’ sound while living in Glasgow, and they wasted little time establishing a buzz in their new home. Featuring...
