Keane celebrates 10 years with upcoming “Best of” compilation


By Alan Ho

Has it really been ten years for contemplative UK pop/rockers Keane?  Oh yes it has!  From their eventual breakout debut back in 2004, to becoming the first band ever to use USB flash drives to release music to garnering all sorts of accolades, it is safe to say Keane has had one hell of a 10 year run and are looking for the next 10 years to be just as wonderful and even better!

The group will be releasing a “Best Of” November 12 and it will span their entire 10 year run so far with 18 fan-picked favorites from their five releases so far as well as two new and powerful songs “Higher Than the Sun” and “Won’t Be Broken.”  There will be also a deluxe edition of the “Best Of,” complete with B-sides AND a SUPER Deluxe Edition that will be a 2-disc affair that includes a special DVD of an acoustic set whose setlist will be chosen by their fanbase!  Keane have asked fans to choose the tracks they would most like to hear the band play acoustically. Fan voting begins now at and closes Sunday, August 18th at 9pm UK time. The winning tracks will be performed in front of a live audience and filmed to create the DVD.

“It’s over a decade ago that we were busy making our first record’ Hopes & Fears’. Having got together in the mid 90s, things took a while to get going for us as a band, but once they did, it became an incredible ride! We’ve had 5 consecutive number 1 albums, toured the world countless times and experienced some very heady days. We wanted to put something out there to mark this milestone, to say thank you to all our fans and to try and send you all on a journey through the songs which we’re most proud of.   Listening through this ‘Best Of’, I feel like we given a pretty good account of ourselves over the years. We hope you agree!” (Tom Chaplin)”
