Keane Record ‘Fly to Me’ for ‘Upstairs at United’ EP – Exclusive Video

Back in June, U.K. rockers Keane spent a day at Nashville’s United Record Pressing plant, a historic facility that’s been churning out slabs of sweet, glorious vinyl since 1962. The building boasts an upstairs apartment that, according to legend, has played host to parties for the likes of Smokey Robinson and Hank Williams Jr., and these days, it’s where engineer Chris Mara holds his ‘Upstairs at United’ sessions. Using vintage gear, Mara records bands straight to analog tape and releases the material in the form on 12-inch vinyl EPs. is proud to premiere footage of Keane cutting ‘Fly to Me,’ one of four songs on ‘Upstairs at United – Vol. 5,’ a four-song EP due in stores tomorrow (Sept. 18). As the video shows, Keane is a fine fit for Mara’s no-frills recording style. Armed with nothing more than guitar, organ, percussive shaker and singer Tom Chaplin’s vocals, the band moves effortlessly through the tune, capturing the warm old-school spirit of their wood-paneled environs.
