Boy, do I feel old. Marking it's 20th Anniversary, Keane have today announced a celebratory re-release of their debut album 'Hopes and Fears', backed up by a string of arena tour dates in support. Lead singer Tom Chaplin says; “I remember standing by that amazing old mixing desk at Heliocentric Studios where we made Hopes and Fears, listening to an early mix of Somewhere Only We Know. I had this feeling that we’d come up with something that had an extra bit of magic. Making music is so often a process full of doubt…but on this occasion there was something undeniable about what we’d created. Clearly a lot of people felt the same when the album came out!” Founding band member and songwriter Tim Rice-Oxley also added: “When I think about these songs, I still picture us playing them in little rooms in pubs around the UK. I remember how exciting it was watching the crowds start to grow. Those songs opened the door to another dimension for us; everything that has happened in our lives since then was born out of that moment. It’s an incredible privilege for us that people are still listening after all this time.” Check out the full list of dates below. Keane will release their 20th Anniversary Debut Album ‘Hopes and Fears’ Remastered on May 10th, 2024.
