Following the worldwide success of their first three albums, the members of Keane announce today the release date of Night Train to be released on Cherrytree/Interscope Records in the U.S. on May 11. The band who has had three consecutive #1 albums in their native UK and have played sold out shows throughout the US will also soon announce tour dates in North America for this coming Spring.
Night Train features eight powerful new tracks which were written and recorded during the band’s Perfect Symmetry world tour that saw them playing to packed arenas in 28 countries.
The album takes its title from the band’s favorite mode of transportation during the tour, and includes Keane’s genre-busting collaborations with Somali/Canadian rapper K’Naan, ‘Stop For A Minute’ and ‘Looking Back’.
“I think these tracks show us in a completely different light.” says Keane frontman Tom Chaplin.
Other highlights include ‘Ishin Denshin (You’ve Got To HelpYourself)’, which features Japanese MC Tigarah, as well as the gorgeous ‘Your Love’, which hangs around a rare lead vocal from the band’s Ivor Novello-winning songwriter Tim Rice-Oxley.
