The Travis - Nothing Ever Happens Video is here!

And they say nothing ever happens!!! It's just not the case at SBH Scotland. Thanks to our friends at Baby Grand Productions we now have a brilliant film of our families to go along with the Christmas Single generously donated by internationally renowned band, Travis. Quite a busy December.

The single is now available to download or stream from all major online music retailers, along with the full 'Pasted Beyond Recognition Album' and all profits come to our charity so please share this festive story far and wide and help us continue making a difference to the lives of all those we support.

A massive thank you to everyone who has been involved with this Del Amitri fans project.

Travis Christmas Single released for SBH Scotland

Two titans of Scottish rock, Travis and Del Amitri, have come together to release a Christmas charity single, with all proceeds going to Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus (SBH) Scotland.

Travis has given a festive makeover to one of Del Amitri’s most successful songs, ‘Nothing Ever Happens’. The single, which will be available for download pre-order from iTunes on 24 November, features sleigh bells and Fran Healy‘s soothing vocals.

The track will also feature on an album of Del Amitri covers, a brainchild of the band’s fan-base.

SBH Scotland children celebrate Travis Single

Through a social media campaign led by fans, and a personal blessing from Del Amitri frontman Justin Currie, a host of famous Scottish musicians and song-writers have collaborated to support the cause. Ricky Ross of Deacon Blue, Julie Fowlis and Tom McRae have all provided songs for the album; ‘Pasted Beyond Recognition’, named after lyrics from Del Amitri song ‘Surface Of The Moon’.

Fran Healy from Travis, said: “Nothing Ever Happens is a perfect song which is as relevant today as it was when it was written. I feel honoured to have been allowed to give it a shot. It’s never going to be as good as the original but it’s a decent effort. We hope it helps sell the CD.”

Travis Single Cover - Nothing Ever Happens

‘Pasted Beyond Recognition’ will be officially launched at a special celebration of music on Saturday 17 December 2016 at the Òran Mór in Glasgow with host Hardeep Singh Kohli. Justin Currie will be treating gig-goers to Del Amitri’s classics and will be joined by Tom McRae, Withered Hand, Blue Rose Code, Ranagri, Zervas & Pepper, Jill Jackson of Speedway and Kris Dollimore, who will all be performing their cover versions from the album. All proceeds from the event and album sales will also be donated to SBH Scotland.

Deborah Roe, Director of Fundraising for SBH Scotland, said: “We are grateful to the Del Amitri fans, Travis, Justin Currie and all of the fantastic musicians who have all generously come together to collaborate on this release. As a charity that is almost solely self-funded, the money and awareness raised will make a huge difference to the lives of those across Scotland affected by these lifelong, complex conditions. The launch gig will be the perfect end to our 50th anniversary celebrations.”

‘Pasted Beyond Recognition’ is also available for pre release digital download on iTunes and a limited run of 500 CDs can be also be pre-ordered at www.sbhscotland.org.uk/del-amitri-cd.

Tickets for the album launch gig are £25 and are available now from the Òran Mór website: http://oran-mor.co.uk
