Hopes And Fears video competition 18 October 2009


As you know, Hopes And Fears is being reissued with a deluxe edition on November 9th 2009. To celebrate, we’ve decided to set you folks a challenge – to make a video for the songs on the album that don’t currently have a video*. Those songs are:

– Bend And Break
– We Might As Well Be Strangers
– Your Eyes Open
– She Has No Time
– Can’t Stop Now
– Sunshine
– Untitled 1
– Snowed Under

We’d like your videos to be imaginative, creative, original and interesting. They can be made using any medium – from film to animation – but they must be entirely your own work and we’d prefer them not to include pictures or film of Keane. Just think of what the song means to you and let your imagination run free…

You have until November 9th to make your video. When you have, please upload it to Vimeo or YouTube and send the link to Only one video per person, please.

One winner will be picked for each of the eight songs. We will then select one overall winner who will win a deluxe Hopes And Fears bundle featuring a double CD, a T-shirt and a limited edition signed poster. The seven other song winners will each receive a signed copy of the Hopes And Fears Deluxe Edition double CD.

We can’t wait to see what you come up with!

* We realise Bend And Break had a live video, but we decided that doesn’t really count. And also, that Snowed Under wasn’t on the original album, but it does appear on the Deluxe Edition (and it is lovely).
