Wreckorder is the debut solo album from Travis lead singer and songwriter Fran Healy. Travis's sheen has disappeared since their popularity in the late 90s. This is a good thing, as anyone who has stuck with them will tell you that their most recent albums Ode to J Smith and particlarly The Boy With No Name are their best work. So hopefully Fran Healy's solo album will be just as good.
There's not too much detail yet, but Healy has turned vegetarian in order to get Paul McCartney to play bass on one of the songs. There's also due to be a duet with Neko Case, and Tom from Noah and the Whale appears on violin.
No release date yet, but I'll let you know...
