Keane Announce Details Of Their New Single 'Disconnected'

Keane will release their new single 'Disconnected' on 8th October 2012, through Island Records. Keane's new album 'Strangeland' entered the UK charts at number one to make it their fifth consecutive number one album, equaling Coldplay and Radiohead, and beaten only by The Beatles.

Cult film director JA Bayona and writer Sergio G. Sanchez, renowned for horror film The Orphanage, directed the video for 'Disconnected'. They shot a full horror movie in Barcelona featuring the band and actors. Bayona and Sanchez's second film collaboration will be released at the end of this year; The Impossible, an epic drama set during the Thailand tsunami in 2004, starring Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor.

'Strangeland' has debuted in the top ten in twenty countries around the world. It is Keane's fourth studio album, after 'Hopes & Fears' (2004); 'Under The Iron Sea' (2006); 'Perfect Symmetry' (2008) and the 'Night Train' EP (2010) which also topped the UK Album Chart.

The critics hailed 'Strangeland' as one of Keane's classic records and the once-heard, never-forgotten chorus of 'Disconnected' puts this classic sound centre stage once more. The Beatles-esque production of the song courtesy of producer Dan Grech (Radiohead, Lana Del Ray, The Vaccines, Howling Bells), colours the heartbreaking lyrics with a deceptively breezy pace, harmonies tugging at the emotional chords as only you could expect from one our biggest bands in the world.

This British band still dominate internationally, currently on a huge world tour, whilst here in the UK their album re-enters the Top 10 (having never left the Top 40) over 3 months after it's release. They have just announced an Arena tour for November this year.
