Injuries Association, a charity chosen as a result of Neil Primrose’s spinal injuries sustained during the band’s 2002 European Festival tour.
A highlight on the album for many critics, Love Will Come Through combines a lilting melody with Fran Healy’s poignant vocals and was described by one writer as “one of the best things Travis have ever recorded”.
Two previously unreleased tracks, both written by Dougie Payne, are also included on the cd along with a ‘home video’ made by Fran and Anton Corbijn. Full track listing as follows: Love Will Come Through; Know Nothing; Good For Nothing; Love Will Come Through (video).
