Travis have announced the release of their highly anticipated new album Everything At Once, as well as unveiling huge new single '3 Miles High'.

Due for release on 29 April on their own label Red Telephone Box via Caroline International, the Scottish indie heroes recorded the LP at the legendary Hansa Studios in Berlin where David Bowie recorded Low, Heroes and Iggy Pop’s The Idiot and Lust For Life. A whole host of other legendary artists have also used the studio including, R.E.M, Manic Street Preachers, and Pixies.

New single ‘3 Miles High’ is an uplifting acoustic cut and features backing vocals from Norwegian singer Aurora, who has made her name for her herselves after covering Oasis’ ‘Half The World Away’ for the John Lewis Christmas advert.

The rest of the album is equally enthralling and features ten songs that show the band at the top of their game, with each cut around or under three minutes. Speaking on the concise nature of the album, Fran Healy reveals that the songs, “Don’t overstay their welcome. We have learnt to be frugal with our writing. You can say everything you want to say. You don’t need four minutes to do it."

The Glaswegian band came to prominence in 1999 with the album The Man Who which reached number one in the UK charts. The 2001 follow up, The Invisible Band, also hit top spot and those two albums remain the bands most well known work.

The Everything At Once tracklisting is: 

What Will Come
Magnificent Time

Everything At Once
3 Miles High
