We're very pleased to announce that the first single from The Best Of Keane will be the new song Higher Than The Sun.
The track will make its radio debut on BBC Radio 2's breakfast show on Friday, when Tom is heading in to the station to play it to Chris Evans. You can listen to Radio 2 online here.
Here's the single artwork:
in my eyes the artwork points to australia; please let this mean that keane are going to come back to play!!! :) :) :)
Hi guys; toooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much!
What wonderful news to hear on the radio, congratulations Mr and Mrs Chaplin. x
A new song! Wow, this is wonderful news! I'm excited, I'm not in the skin, I can not wait to hear it, I heart is pounding! Very cute the single cover, is cheerful and I like the idea of the world map because your music comes softly around the world ! Greetings from Sabrina from Sicily!
Tim is a GENIUS - more happy lyrics pls (as your tunes are always uplifting!) Congratulations Tom!
Here is a link to podcast, highlights http://www.bbc.co.uk/podcasts/series/evans
Link to Radio 2 page doesn't work and on the Radio 2 website it just has Chas & Dave and Darcey Bussell. I take it from the congratulations messages that Tom and Nat are expecting a baby? Best wishes indeed!

Help - when can we buy this single?
I can only imagine "Higher than the sun" as a brilliant next Keane 'Anthem', so powerful and touching, for singing along with you, sharing that unique connection and amazing Bond of Love we live in every Keane gig..♥ Feel so grateful, because believe it's a song so much 'addressed' to all of us! Lyrics are beautiful and so meaningful… there's indeed a Keane song for each and every moment of our lives! And it's such a perfect song for us to reciprocate and sing back to you! :) because it expresses exactly how yr music makes us feel : "..like a friend you never knew was there"...♥ (love this little bit!) Finally..only Tom to give to the song its perfect sense, its true sentiment - such an amazing and heartfelt singing, OMG! With Keane "We're higher than the sun...and nothing's gonna change the way I'm feeling..!" yes - it says it all ♥ Love you Guys, tk you again and again, for bringing so much good into my life. Can't wait for November..! PS - Congratulations to Tom and Nat! Wish you all the happiness in the world, you so fully deserve it! Many Happy Greetings from Portugal ♥
Love it !!!!!
LOVE HIGHER. Basking in its warmth and glow.
Congratulations Tom and Nathalie!
Absolutely love 'Higher Than The Sun' Thank you Keane, you never disappoint! :) XXXX
Brilliant I can tell I love that song already (considering Keane songs usually have to grow on me). Tim you are a genius.
Waiting patiently...not so patiently after all...I can't wait!!
hola, chicos!! esperando el día, hoy mmm esperando #HigherThanTheSun!!! los quiero...
Countdown in UK time @ http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/city.html?n=136
I´m so excited about this performance. Wónt lose it for anything in the world. By the way, for those looking for the schedule, I´ve been surfing into internet and this show is broadcasted from 6.30 to 9.30 am (hour in UK). If someone is in Germany like me, that´s two hours difference, so for us it would be from 8.30 to 11.30. XOXO. Best luck TOM!!!!
That’s interesting, Indiegirl. The dog used to get me up at 6 but since she ascended to doggie heaven, wake up a lot later these dayzzz (:
Tom drew the short straw due to him always getting up at the crack of dawn (it was an answer to a Q&A Session once), so he'd probably be vaguely awake by 6.30 having got up at 5! Him and Richard had to do the BBC Breakfast news interview due to not having kids.
BBC2 show begins at 6:30 am UK time according to this http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00p2d9w
Poor Tom, what has he done to deserve being on the breakfast show with Chas & Dave! At least he's got 6 weeks to recover from the trauma to be fit for Berlin. Be strong Tom, we're thinking of you xx
Can you please say at what time?
Hi Guys! I know everyone can not be satisfied, but I am very unhappy to see that there are no cinemas in Paris or its surroundings me that doing me a joy to relive with you this show ; my happiness quickly turns into sadness *** unless to you make forgive us surprise you to return to France ** I hope with all my heart*** Lot of Love and BIG KISSES to all from France
I LOVE IT ;) AND LOVE U TIM ...GREETINGS! TO EVERYONE FROM MEXICO :))))
Give us a clue what sort time it's likely to be on, go on.
INDONESIA is "Higher Than The Sun"!! :)
Gracias chicos!!! en los momentos dificiles de la vida, la música es lo que inspira la pasión, pero su música es simplemente lo que me lleva a un mundo nuevo y maravilloso, las melodías son como el reencuentro de mi misma en el sentido sublime de la inspiracion... GRACIAS!!! =)
OMFG!!! This makes me happy :)
Regresen a Perú son lo máximo
Super excited that I got a ticket for the gig in my hometown Berlin and now this new gem on Friday! I think I might cry!
This is great news!! I wasn't expecting a brand new single from you guys!!! Can't wait!! Hugs
Can't wait! :D :D :D :D
Felicidades por la presentación en la radio. Keane es para mi un referente como banda inglesa ahora que Europa está dirigida plenamente por Alemania. El resto de países no hemos aprendido demasiado después de lo sucedido en la II Guerra Mundial. Inglaterra, concretamente Londres quedó arrasada. Siguen con su moneda y en una posición alejada de la Unión Europea. Y los entiendo perfectamente. El resto de países estamos endeudados con Alemania. Un futuro no muy esperanzador. Barcelona. Marisa. Un petó para Tim.
