Return With New Album & Tour
Cause and Effect
Out September 20th
New Track ‘The Way I Feel’ Out Now!
Keane, one of Britain’s best and most beloved bands, are currently putting the finishing touches to a brand new studio album, their first since ‘Strangeland’ in 2012, set for release later this year.
A stunning appearance on the BBC’s Comic Relief, performing ‘Somewhere Only We Know’, sent fans on social media into overdrive. It was like they’d never been away.
After releasing two highly successful solo albums during Keane’s hiatus, frontman Tom Chaplin found himself meeting up with Tim Rice-Oxley, Keane’s songwriter and pianist, and listening to songs that Tim had planned on releasing as part of a solo project. Tom was incredibly moved by the honesty of the writing and knew immediately that he wanted to help bring these emotional songs to life.
“I thought it was the most personal, most vulnerable set of songs that I’d ever heard,” says Tom Chaplin, “and I was very drawn to that. It felt like a story that I could help articulate.”
Tom and Tim soon found themselves in the studio with their old mates, drummer Richard Hughes and bassist Jesse Quin, working on an album that they’re all extremely proud of.
Keane announced European festival appearances for the summer.
Written by Keane and produced by David Kosten and the band themselves, ‘Cause and Effect’ features 11 new songs recorded in London and Sussex.
‘Cause and Effect’ is Keane’s 5th studio album. Their 4 previous albums have all entered the UK charts at number 1 and accumulated sales of over 13m worldwide and 2.6 billion streams.
The video for ‘The Way I Feel’ was directed by Kevin Godley, who previously directed the video for the band’s hit single ‘Is It Any Wonder’ and Tom’s solo release ‘Still Waiting’.
‘The Way I Feel’, like the other ten tracks on ‘Cause and Effect’, is an emotional and remarkable slice of life, and reminiscent of the very best of Keane. It’s an exciting period for one of the country’s best bands and a very welcome return.
As Tim Rice-Oxley says, “We’re not some heritage act. We’ve got a lot of great music in us.” ‘Cause and Effect’ is just that.
