Travis - Gold Vinyl Giveaway

The Boy With No Name, a top-five album from beloved Scottish rock troupe Travis has returned to vinyl for the first time. Cut at London’s Metropolis Studios, Craft Recordings’ new reissue of the band's fifth studio album comes housed in a gatefold sleeve and features a bonus 7” single, with the highly desirable gold variant of this package selling out way before the release date.

The Boy With No Name’s re-release comes on the heels of the vinyl reissue of Travis’ debut album, Good Feeling. In 2007, ten years after the release of that record much had changed for Travis’ Fran Healy (vocals, guitar), Andy Dunlop (guitar), Dougie Payne (bass), and Neil Primrose (drums) – and yet, much remained the same. With Healy now a father his songwriting on The Boy With No Name turned to the world of relationships.


The album was praised by the BBC as the band’s “most eclectic album to date,” and the work of a band who “can afford to take risks,” while receiving four stars from Q Magazine.

The Boy With No Name is a dense album,” Fran Healy reflects. “Andy MacDonald, our A&R man fracked me hard, possibly a little too hard, for songs. As a result, there were many strong contenders for singles. ‘Battleships,’ ‘Sailing Away,’ and ‘Big Chair’ are among some of which should have been released but never made it.

“It’s possibly our most eclectic album, packed with some of our most memorable songs” - Fran Healy - Travis
