Preview Tracks From Keane’s New Album ‘Strangeland’

Piano-pop maestros Keane are getting ready to unleash their fourth studio album ‘Strangeland’ on May 7. To help promote the LP, the band is letting fans preview tracks from ‘Strangleland’ before its release date.

The new record is reminiscent of Keane’s first two albums, especially their 2004 debut ‘Hopes and Fears.’ This should please older fans who were a bit turned off from the British band’s last release, 2010′s synth-leaning ‘Perfect Symmetry.’ Despite releasing multiple albums, keyboardist Tim Rice-Oxley feels that ‘Strangeland’ is their first great one.

”I felt it was about time we made a great record,” Rice-Oxley told Contactmusic.com. “I feel this is the first great album we’ve made… or it’s the closest yet.”

Preview all 12 tracks on Keane’s official website. The title has a lot more emotion invested in it. While the overall theme of ‘Strangeland’ may initially seem negative, that is not the case in the end.

“It’s a very emotional album,” Rice-Oxley told NME. “The title track is about setting off in a certain path in life and thinking it’s going to go one way, but finding out life’s taken a detour. Pretty much every song on the album is about that. (But) it’s a more hopeful record than it might sound!”

Keane have announced an initial batch of North American tour dates in support of ‘Strangeland.’ The trek launches June 12 in Boston, Mass. and concludes June 30 in Oakland, Calif. Watch the music video for their single ‘Silenced by the Night’ here.
