December 3, 2008

Travis will kick off the new year with the release of their second single from the critically acclaimed album Ode To J Smith.

Song To Self will be released on January 5th and will be available via digital download and on limited 7” vinyl. Both formats include The Ballad Of J Smith, a new song unavailable elsewhere.

The 7″ features a special extended version of Song To Self containing a whole new musical section, and the first 200 orders received for the vinyl format will be signed by Travis.
