Hello From Heathrow

26 August 2010

Hello people of 58 countries (according to my web stats) Today is supercool giveaway day. If you look over to the right, there is a lil widget which, when clicked, will give you the Track HOLIDAY absolutely FREEEEEE… This is the song that started the whole solo idea. Andy Dunlop plays on it… That’ll be those beautiful arpeggio guitar lines you hear in the background. Prolly the most Travissy out of all the songs because of this… so enjoy. Here is a picture of me in the fantastic T5 Executive CLub Lounge … Posh! Also E.T. came to say hello while I was sitting here…

You can leave a response, or trackback from your own site.

    Just want you to know that, as soon as Buttercup started, my 1st thought was “Yes! This is exactly what I had hoped you’d come out with!”
    So love it!

    This is awesome! I think I’ve heard 3 or 4 tracks from the album now and they’ve all been really strong/great/awesome.

  11. sammy says:

    I really must get round to watching E.T, I still haven’t seen it! I think I’m a bit behind on my films… Anyhow, thanks for the freebie Holiday, it’s very melodic and I love it. Is arpeggio the name of the guitar or the name of the style of playing?
    FH “I almost hit you as SPAM for having not ever watched ET. Go and do it now”

  34. Celeste says:

    Loving the new track. I think I recognize it from your Fran Healy x Andy Dunlop tour, am I right? I can’t wait to buy the album. <3

  35. Brandon says:

    Fran! Thank you so much for whetting our appetites with an mp3! LOVED your performance at Oshaega. So intimate with your encouragement of us all to remain in the criss-cross applesauce position. Unforgettable!! In addition, I am very pleased to have the opportunity to add yet another chapter of your songwriting in my collection of vinyl. Will you be offering the record through your website? Cheers! Brandon from Vermont.

  36. christine says:

    aww, i love E.T.! my boyfriend and i were elliot and gertie for halloween last year.. haha. picture here.

  37. Cynthia says:

    Goodness, what a treat to hear the “Wreckorder” version of “Holiday.” I had the pleasure of hearing it live first on the “Frandy” tour, and then with repeated listens on the bootleg CD. I just listened to the freebie download and it’s like watching a child grow up and mature and become a fine young adult. . . only audibly instead of physically. Very cool to hear the evolution of the live version to the studio one, instead of experiencing it the other way around.

  38. Amy says:

    woohoo free stuuuuuuuuffffffff
    awesome song.

  39. Noel Kang says:

    You ARE SOOO GENTLE MR.FRANNY!!

  42. Luke says:

    ET has been on the booze again…

  43. Amy Humphrey says:

    Geez, that IS posh! When we flew into Heathrow to play some shows a few years back we got shunted to a nearby hard bench for an ETERNITY while they sorted through our papers and permits. Everyone going through immigration filed by us, looking at us like we might have an explosive up our sleeves. Maybe NEXT time we go over to play we’ll get the royal treatment… 😉

  44. Pat McKenna says:

    I have to say, i love that holiday track

    play ireland
