Fran Healy Takes a Holiday from Travis
In the spirit of newness this week, here's a demo track from Travis frontman Fran Healy's debut solo effort, Wreckorder, still in production. It features a diverse group of guest musicians, including Neko Case, Tom Hobden from Noah and the Whale, and Paul McCartney from, oh, the friggin' Beatles. (In order to thank McCartney for laying down a sweet bass line on one of the tracks, Healy decided to become a vegetarian. McCartney, in turn, gifted him with three Linda McCartney cookbooks.)

I think we could all use some wrecked order and a holiday from business as usual. The best part about January is tearing all the old stuff down and starting over. I suspect that's what was going on in Healy's head, too.
