Travis frontman Fran Healy feared the therapy sessions that helped him battle depression would make him lose his songwriting talent.
The singer used hypnotherapy to combat the illness, but feared he would no longer be able to write music if he was no longer depressed.
He says, "I wasn't really comfortable talking about this at the time it came out, but (album) 12 Memories was about going into therapy and the record was the therapy sessions.
"So I had three months of hypnotherapy instead, where you went back and fixed your memories.
"Because I'm the biggest blab, I will confide in everyone. But my worry about going into therapy was, what if I can't write songs anymore because I fixed the thing that makes me do it."
