To celebrate the release of Travis’ ninth studio album ‘10 Songs’ last Friday (9th October), the ever-genial Fran Healy and Dougie Payne caught up with Absolute Radio’s Ben Burrell for a wide-ranging chat.

Featuring the Absolute Radio playlisted anthem ‘A Ghost’, the aptly entitled ‘10 Songs’ boasts 10 new Travis tracks and it’s currently sitting pretty at number one on the Midweek Album Chart.

Travis’ ‘10 Songs’ is also Album of the Week on Danielle Perry’s Absolute Radio show all this week and Danielle will be playing tracks from the album over the next five days.

Watch Ben Burrell’s full 20-minute chat with Fran Healy and Dougie Payne below where they chat about Fran’s gargantuan month-and-a-half quarantine, ’10 Songs’, joining forces with The Bangles’ Susanna Hoffs on ‘The Only Thing’, their huge commercial triumph with ‘The Man Who’, headlining Glastonbury in 2000, how their success left them frazzled, and much more.
