Strangeland by Keane

Album: Strangeland (Deluxe Edition)Released: 2012
  • This is the title track of English alternative rock band Keane's fourth album. Pianist Tim Rice-Oxley told NME the record was more deeply felt than before. "It's a very emotional album," he said. "The title track is about setting off in a certain path in life and thinking it's going to go one way, but finding out life's taken a detour. Pretty much every song on the album is about that. (But) it's a more hopeful record than it might sound!"
  • Strangeland was co-produced by Dan Grech-Marguerat and its sound was inspired by What Did You Expect From The Vaccines, which was also helmed by the English producer. Speaking to NME, Rice-Oxley said: "We loved what (producer) Dan Grech did on The Vaccines album. It had just come out. He'd also done stuff with Radiohead and produced the second Howling Bells album, which I loved. As luck would have it, Dan was a massive Keane fan, so we ended working with him."
  • Strangeland debuted at #1 on the UK album chart making Keane the first act since The Beatles to do so with their first five studio releases (their four long players plus the EP Night Train).
