Following their sold out show at the Olympia Theatre this past October, Keane have announced an outdoor performance at The Summer Series at Trinity College Dublin on Thursday 2nd July 2020.
‘Cause and Effect’, the brand new album from Keane features 11 new songs recorded in London and Sussex.
‘Cause and Effect’ is Keane’s 5th studio album. Their 4 previous albums have all entered the UK charts at number 1 and accumulated sales of over 13m worldwide and 2.6 billion streams.
The birth of this new album came as something of a surprise even to the band. Singer Tom Chaplin had released two successful solo albums but missed his old sparring partner Tim Rice-Oxley. “I found myself wondering how I had come to let this very enigmatic and important relationship in my life drift,” Tom says.
Meanwhile Tim found his life falling apart and from the ashes had written an album’s worth of incredibly personal songs fuelled by humour as well as pain. When Tom, bassist Jesse Quin and drummer Richard Hughes heard the songs, they were immediately drawn to them both sonically and lyrically.
“Hopes and Fears was a break-up album too, but it was about a break-up when I was 19,” Tim explains. “It’s a bit different when you’re older and you’ve got kids – your whole little world shifts on its axis.”
As Tim Rice-Oxley says, “We’re not some heritage act. We’ve got a lot of great music in us.”
‘Cause and Effect’ is just that.
