Unreleased Keane Track on Haiti Fundraiser

American Eagle Outfitters, in partnership with Filter Magazine, has this week launched Hear To Help, an exclusive compilation CD to benefit relief and recovery efforts in Haiti. And we're pleased to report that it features an exclusive Keane track - the French version of Black Burning Heart, which the band recorded in the summer of 2008, but which has never previously been released. (It seemed an appropriate choice, as French is one of Haiti's two official…

Night Train - Biography 2010



Not many British bands these days have more than one album, which sells a million copies, let alone three. Fewer still manage to replicate - and maintain - that success outside the UK. And only a tiny number are able to continually develop their sound as their career progresses. But, in the last decade, Keane have achieved all of those things and a whole lot more. After selling 10 million copies of their three award-winning albums, it's no… Continue

Tim's Book Club - The Pilgrimage

Paulo Coelho is one of those writers that intellectuals can be a bit sneery about, because he writes these very wide-eyed books about spiritual adventures and everything is always a metaphor for some kind of spiritual discovery or philosophy. And he's also quite religious in places. But I was recommended the book - by Jesse, actually - and I really enjoyed it.



It's a very interesting read. It's based on Coelho going on this journey where he wants to become part of some kind of… Continue

Close, but no cigar!

Hi folks. We just wanted to drop you a note to let you know that, sadly, Hopes And Fears didn't win the Best Album of 30 Years at the Brit Awards last night. The award was actually won by Oasis's album (What's The Story) Morning Glory.





However, we do know that Keane got loads of votes, and we wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who took the trouble to vote for Hopes And Fears. We really do appreciate it.…

Eight important factlets about the new Keane Release

"Some of the songs continue in the trajectory of the last Keane album, so 'Your Love' (which has touches of 'Early Winter') is quite electrical and 'Stop For A Minute' (featuring a rap from K'Naan who manages to rhyme 'females' with 'e-mails' thus putting this song on a level with Pixie Lott's 'Cry Me Out' in that respect and that respect alone) sits well alongside something like 'Spiralling'."

Check out the full article over on the…

Tom's Pet Shop Boys Cover

Hello

This is me at home on the piano (yes just got out of bed) playing an old Pet Shop Boys b-side that I’ve always loved. Although it’s a song about a funeral, and despite being set in the context of the formal, stiff-upper lipped way British people approach death, I think it’s more about how "passing on" should really be seen as something more positive...much more a part of life I suppose. In this case, a release from prejudice and a sense of hope…
