One of the best-selling albums in UK chart history, it sold over 2.5 million in the UK in its first year, and a million in the USA, propelled by huge single ‘Somewhere Only We Know’. Furthermore, ‘Hopes and Fears’ is 9x platinum in the UK and has has sold over 10 million copies worldwide.
‘Everybody’s Changing’ from ‘Hopes and Fears’ also went on to become a fan favourite and top five hit.
In 2004 Keane were the biggest selling British artist in the UK. The following year they took home two BRIT Awards for Best British Album and British Breakthrough Act award as voted for by Radio 1 listeners.
Next year’s tour will celebrate Keane’s acclaimed body of work from their debut release through to their 2019 studio album ‘Cause and Effect’.
Lead singer Tom Chaplin commented, “I remember standing by that amazing old mixing desk at Heliocentric Studios where we made Hopes and Fears, listening to an early mix of Somewhere Only We Know. I had this feeling that we’d come up with something that had an extra bit of magic. Making music is so often a process full of doubt…but on this occasion there was something undeniable about what we’d created. Clearly a lot of people felt the same when the album came out!”
Founding band member and songwriter Tim Rice-Oxley continued, “When I think about these songs, I still picture us playing them in little rooms in pubs around the UK. I remember how exciting it was watching the crowds start to grow. Those songs opened the door to another dimension for us; everything that has happened in our lives since then was born out of that moment. It’s an incredible privilege for us that people are still listening after all this time.”
