11.13am: This is how it’s looking in Jo Whiley’s studio. No obvious sign of a CD with KEANE written on it…

11.08am: It’s not been on yet. But Jo has been saying that a track from 1981 is coming “very, very soon”. That’d be Keane then…

Here are some pics taken when the band recorded the song in a studio in Philadelphia. The first two were taken by the band’s drum tech Scott and the last one is Richard’s.
