Following the reveal of their special, previously unreleased single “Love Actually” earlier this month, Keane have released its accompanying lyric video. Coinciding with the 20th Anniversary celebrations of their acclaimed debut album Hopes and Fears, the beautifully poignant single’s stunning lyric video cuts some of the memorable scenes of the classic British film Love Actually which turns 20 as well. Watch it HERE
As previously reports, “Love Actually” was originally written for 2003 Christmas romantic comedy and the band have finally recorded a version 20 years after its inception which was produced by the band and led by Tom Chaplin’s undeniable vocal. Listen to “Love Actually” HERE.
Keane will release a special remastered version of Hopes and Fears, undoubtedly one of the best debut albums ever, on May 10, 2024 exactly 20 years after its initial release. On the same day, the band play London’s 02 Arena as part of a world tour that kicks off April 1st in Mexico City before reaching Europe and the UK. Their US tour in September includes prestigious dates at LA’s Greek Theatre, Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium and New York City’s Radio City Music Hall.
Hopes and Fears was a landmark album for Keane and has set all kinds of records in the process. It’s one of the best selling albums in UK chart history having sold over 2.5 million in the UK in its first year, and a million in the USA propelled by their absolutely classic song “Somewhere Only We Know.” Hopes and Fears is 9x platinum in the UK, a remarkable achievement. The album has sold over 10 million copies worldwide.
Keane play the following U.S. dates in September 2024. Tickets on sale HERE. They will play The Anthem on September 24, 2024
