Scottish group Travis are working once again with uber-producer Nigel Godrich on their next record, which is the follow-up to 2003’s 12 Memories. Bass player Dougie Payne posted a message on the band’s official website, where he said that they have recorded twenty songs so far.
He said: “We're working in a place called The Hospital. The studio is in a building that houses a members club, two restaurants a TV studio and most dangerously of all a martini bar.”
"Thankfully the studio part is on the top floor, nicely separated from all the temptations. We've got about 20 songs recorded. This includes stuff we did in Westside earlier in the year and one tune goes back to the sessions we did with Brian Eno last December.”
If all goes well, Travis should be ready to release their as-yet-untitled fifth proper full-length album sometime in ’06.
