Keane confirm new album 'Strangeland', reveal release date
The British band Keane have confirmed that they will release a brand new album, entitled 'Strangeland', on May 7.
The forthcoming new release was produced by Dan Grech-Marguerat (Howling Bells, The Vaccines) and he revealed to Billboard.com that the alt-rockers were set on returning to the kind of songwriting featured on their first two albums, 'Hopes and Fears' and 'Under The Iron Sea':
"We talked a lot about the sound and ambition of the record beforehand… about going back to the songwriting of their first two albums. We wanted to make a record that sounded rich and simpler."
Martin Kierszenbaum, Cherry Tree Records' Chairman, added that the first single for American fans will be 'Silenced By The Night' whereas Keane's UK audience will be given 'Disconnected'.
The release of 'Strangeland' will be followed by a full supporting tour and the tracklisting for the cut is as follows:
