The delicate track is the latest cut to be taken from their forthcoming LP, following lead single Gaslight and The River and Raze The Bar, which included vocals from Coldplay singer Chris Martin and The Killers' frontman Brandon Flowers.

The song was about the closure of the Black & White bar - a much-loved New York haunt for the band and many fellow artists.

Travis are supporting The Killers on their UK dates this year and Healy told The Chris Moyles Show about how he unwittingly inspired the Las Vegas band.

Asked how far back Travis go with the Mr. Brightside rockers," he replied: "A long time actually. Longer than I even know, because the first time we met was at Live 8, but he told me at Live 8 that when us and Oasis played in Las Vegas [...] it was one of these shows where all these young guys and girls came to and a lot of bands happened after that gig and The Killers were one of those bands.

"And Brandon was saying when they first started rehearsing, they covered (single) Side. It was one of their cover songs! So it goes back a very long way...."
