Keane Announce US Album Release Date

UK group Keane announced the release date of their upcoming new record. Night Train, will be released on May 11 here in the US, via Cherrytree/Interscope Records. While dates haven't been announced yet, they will tour North America this spring.
Night Train features eight powerful new tracks which were written and recorded during the band's Perfect Symmetry world tour that saw them playing to packed arenas in 28 countries.

The album takes its title from the band's favorite mode of transportation during the tour, and includes Keane's genre-busting collaborations with Somali/Canadian rapper K'Naan, 'Stop For A Minute' and 'Looking Back'.

"I think these tracks show us in a completely different light." says Keane frontman Tom Chaplin.
