Keane announce new release

It's the first chance to hear the new album

Keane are set to release a video download to give fans a preview of their upcoming second album ‘Under The Iron Sea’.

Produced by the band and Andy Green, the follow-up LP to 2004’s debut ‘Hopes And Fears’ is scheduled to hit the shops on June 12.

However a digital release of the album track ‘Atlantic’ will hit the internet in mid-April.

According to Music Week, the first single proper to be lifted from the album will be ‘Is It Any Wonder?’ on May 29.

The decision to put out a video download was explained by Island Records Group president Nick Gatfield, who said: “We really thought long and hard about how we would want the record to be perceived. The visual side is hugely important to the band.”
