'Any Less Anymore' will drop June 2nd.
Travis Collins is set to release his ninth studio album, Any Less Anymore on June 2nd.
Working with Stuart Stuart, Collins collaborated with songwriters from around the globe including The Wolfe Brothers and Lindsay Ell. The album features the already released singles, One Of Them Nights and Just The Way. The latest track to drop will be the title track, which will be available from March 17 to coincide with his performance at the CMC Rocks Festival.
Collins explains, “Any Less Anymore is about making the most of each day, learning to appreciate yourself, family, and the moment. Mostly, it’s about growing up, learning who you are and dare I admit, maybe even becoming mature.
“Over the past couple of years, we’ve all had life changed or disrupted in some way, professionally or personally. It was both for me. Like most in the music business, it was a major sidelining and ‘time out’ for who I was, and what I do. Initially, that was terrifying. However, as we went further forward, I tried to embrace change, and I learned it wasn’t all bad.
“For the first time in my adult life, I had to learn be still. Calm. In one place. Which was tough for a guy whose wife calls him ‘Jet Stream’. Turns out it was the reset and break I didn’t even know I needed. Physically, mentally, emotionally.
“Until 2020, my life was dedicated to one thing only, so when I couldn’t do or ‘be’ that, I began looking within and asking myself “who am I, now?” This album is kind of my journal of that period, the thoughts I had, feelings I felt, and lessons I learned.

“The following year and a half became some of the best times of my life so far... Despite losing what I’d always thought was the cornerstone of my identity, I felt like I got to see the first real glimpses of my true self... Husband, Father, Neighbour, Brother, Friend, Son. The real stuff.
“There’s a lot on this record about ‘perspective’. That’s what the past two years have been about, and what my path forward is about. It’s surreal to say, but I’m grateful for the past two years, and I’m proud of these songs about that time in my life.”
Collins is considered one of Australia’s finest country music artists. He burst onto the scene in 2005 with Start the Car, establishing himself as a leading light in Australian song.
Nine studio albums later, he is a regular mainstage fixture at Australia’s peak country music festivals, and routinely plays to sold-out crowds across the country. He has also toured alongside US megastars Tim McGraw, Luke Combs, Dan Davidson and Billy Ray Cyrus.
He will appear as one of the main stage acts at CMC Rocks from 17-19 March 2023 alongside international headliners Morgan Wallen, Zac Brown Band and Kip Moore. Collins will also open for Midland during their upcoming The Last Resort: Greetings From tour this August-September.
