"Keane's video for their first single "Stop for a Minute (which will be out April 11), is just as brilliant as their game-changing album "Night Train." You can get a taste of the new sounds Keane ushered into their audio orphanage in the video below, which features another PopWrap fave, K'naan."
We're very pleased to announce that the Stop For A Minute video will get its world premiere this Sunday night, March 28th, at 12.05am GMT (ie just as Monday begins). It will be on Channel 4 over in the UK. We will then post the video up on CherrytreeRecords.com and KeaneMusic.com as soon as we can after that.
