FRAN HEALY 'Wreckorder' [Release Date 04/10/2010]
Fran Healy, lead singer and main songwriter of hugely successful rock band Travis, is excited to announce the release of his debut solo album Wreckorder. Set for an October 4th release on Healy’s own Wreckord Label, Wreckorder is the work of a quintessential pop songwriter. Known for songs such as 'All I Wanna Do Is Rock', 'Why Does It Always Rain On Me?', 'Driftwood' and 'Sing' to name but a few, Healy has been recognized by Q Magazine, Rolling Stone and NME amongst others for what Entertainment Weekly calls "A gorgeous mosaic of shimmering guitar pop."
Recorded in Berlin, New York and Vermont, the 10 tracks that make up the record also include a duet with US breakthrough songstress Neko Case on the gloriously laid back 'Sing Me To Sleep', the soaring 'In The Morning' and the teasing 'Moonshine'. Notably the dramatic waltz of 'As It Comes' features Sir Paul McCartney on bass – Healy repaid Macca for his efforts by turning vegetarian. Wreckorder is the sound of a songwriter who continues to artistically evolve.
