Keane album update

The band will head into a studio in New York soon

Keane are set to head into the studio next month.

The band will work on the follow-up to last year’s debut ‘Hopes And Fears’ when they begin recording in New York for three weeks.

The sessions will follow their current tour of the US which also features four nights supporting U2 at New York’s Madison Square Garden (October 7-8, 10-11).

It is unknown how much work has already been done on the LP as pianist Tim Rice-Oxley told NME.COM that Keane were heading into a studio after the appearance at this year’s T In The Park festival (July 9-10).

He said: “We’ve done bits and bobs already, but we start in earnest now. It’s a bit pressure and a bit worry at the moment, but we’re excited about getting stuck into it.”
