Travis have announced their 10th studio album.

The follow-up to 2020's '10 Songs' is called 'L.A. Times' and will arrive on July 12. Produced by Tony Hoffer, the record was written by frontman Fran Healy at his studio in Los Angeles, the city he's called home for the last 10 years. Introducing it, he said:

"L.A. Times is our most personal album since 'The Man Who'. There was a lot of big stuff to write about back then, the tectonic plates had shifted in my life. I was 22 when I was writing those songs. They were my therapy. Over 20 years later and the plates have shifted again. There’s a lot to talk about."

As a preview, the multi-Brit Award and Ivor Novello-winning Glasgow  band have shared the new single Gaslight, an upbeat indie-pop track enriched with horns, handclaps and gang vocals.

Healy added: "I read a few weeks ago that gaslighting was the most web searched word in the world. We are living in a time where our realities are being warped by bosses, leaders, friends, teachers and politicians. It really is everywhere. Gaslighters want to control you. They tell you things which undermine your confidence in yourself and make you question reality and it makes you feel like you’re going crazy."

Travis will support The Killers on their UK arena tour this summer, with further live dates to be confirmed soon. They'll also headline Sign Of The Times Festival in Hertfordshire in July. Tickets are on sale now.

'L.A. Times' tracklist:

1. Bus
2. Raze the Bar
3. Live It All Again
4. Gaslight
5. Alive
6. Home
7. I Hope That You Spontaneously Combust
8. Naked In New York City
