Last year, it was announced that Keane will be releasing a special remastered edition of their debut album Hopes and Fears in honor of its 20th anniversary on May 10th, 2024. Now, the group have shared the details of the celebratory release.

The 20th anniversary edition of Hopes and Fears has been remastered and cut by Frank Arkwright at Abbey Road Studios. 5.1 Dolby Atmos mixes come from David Kosten. The new and improved master is also accompanied by the release of B-Sides, previously unreleased demos, and rarities. Ahead of the release, fans can now listen to a previously unheard demo of the group’s signature track, “Somewhere Only We Know.”

The album will be available for purchase in a number of formats, including as a 1 LP Galaxy Vinyl (Original Album Remastered) and a 2LP Coloured Vinyl (Original Album Remastered + B-Sides and Rarities). There will also be CD releases: a 3CD version (Original Album Remastered + B-Sides, Rarities + Demos) and a 2CD Live version (Original Album Remastered & Live Recordings from Mexico City 2024).

The most comprehensive edition of the remaster will be the Limited Edition Box Set Deluxe Edition (Numbered commemorative ticket, Hopes And Fears notebook, band silhouette print envelope containing 2 postcards designed by Dave Lupton (1 signed) fold out postcard frame, 3CD, 7” Love Actually vinyl single, printed inner bag w/ handwritten lyrics, and wall poster). Finally, the remaster will be available on Digital (All audio available on all DSPs).

On the same day as the celebratory release, the band will play the first of two London 02 Arena shows as part of a world tour that kicks off April 1st in Mexico City before reaching Europe and the UK. Final tickets for The O2 London are on sale February 21st via Keane’s website.

    The Keane 3-CD set is £17. The SDE is £80
    – which means you’re charging £63 for one 7″ single, a cardboard box and some bits of paper. Seriously??
