Travis have shared the behind-the-scenes footage from the making of the video for their hit single, “Sing”, which also features on the upcoming, expanded reissue of the Scottish quartet’s third album, The Invisible Band.
The video for “Sing” was first released on 20 April 2001. It was directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris and filmed over in Pasadena, California over three days. It features Travis attending a dinner party, which eventually descends into a massive food fight. The video was later nominated for Best British Video at the 2002 Brit Awards. You can check out the candid, behind-the-scenes footage below.
The new edition of the multi-platinum The Invisible Band is set to be reissued on December 3 through Craft Recordings, in celebration of the record’s 20th anniversary. The deluxe edition features the original album remastered by Grammy Award-winning engineer Emily Lazar, all the original B-sides, and a selection of completely unreleased demos, live sessions, and alternate takes.
A special limited-edition 20th Anniversary box set features the material across two CDs and two 180-gram heavyweight, ultra-clear vinyl LPs, cut at London’s Air Studios. The set includes an extensive book with unseen session photography, handwritten lyrics, and essays from the band plus contributions from the original producer Nigel Godrich.
The band have also announced The Invisible Band in Concert tour across North America and the United Kingdom in April/May 2022. This marks the first time the seminal album will be played in full, plus material from 2020’s 10 Songs and more from the group’s extensive catalog of hits. Tickets for the UK dates are available now; existing tickets to UK dates remain valid. Tickets for the US tour go on sale Friday, October 8.
Frontman Fran Healy says, “The Invisible Band is 20!! I hadn’t listened to the whole album for a while. It’s a lovely piece of work from the big singles like “Sing” and “Flowers in the Window” to “Afterglow” and “Last Train.” It sounds great at 20! We’re also taking it on the road. We’re really looking forward to playing live again.”
