Every now and then, the Single of the Week on iTunes is a gem, and this this week’s single is brilliant and a MUST hear.
Fran Healy, lead singer and songwriter of Travis, released a solo album a few weeks back called Wreckorder (review). It is fast becoming one of my favorite albums – the more I listen to it, the more intrigued and fascinated I get. Fran’s lyrics are very deep and honest, and the significance of each song grows with every listen.
“Sing Me To Sleep” is a duet with Neko Case, and it one of the standout tracks on the album. Neko and Fran’s voices are fantastic together, perfectly complementing each other. And this week, you can download it for FREE from iTunes. All you need to do is click here.
