To celebrate ten incredible years of success, Keane will release ‘The Best Of Keane’ on 11th November 2013, through Island Records. It is available to pre-order now. (It's out on 12th November in the US of A.)

Says Tom: “It’s over a decade ago that we were busy making our first record 'Hopes & Fears’. Having got together in the mid 90s, things took a while to get going for us as a band, but once they did, it became an incredible ride! We've had 5 consecutive number 1 albums, toured the world countless times and experienced some very heady days.

We wanted to put something out there to mark this milestone, to say thank you to all our fans and to try and send you all on a journey through the songs which we're most proud of.

Listening through this ‘Best Of’, I feel like we given a pretty good account of ourselves over the years. We hope you agree!”

HELP!! trying to pre-order the super deluxe, but when I click on the link it is not showing up! can anyone help please??

I can't wait to have the Super Deluxe Edition in my hands and to hear the new tracks!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by crystaldoll at 9:46pm, 24 Aug 2013

It's a bit of a shock the new style for this CD not to mention **The Best Of : Keane** CD !!!! anyway, I love you with all my heart !!! Keep rocking !!!!!

Posted by crystaldoll at 9:39pm, 24 Aug 2013

WOOOAO I´ve never seen so many flowers in the Keane website ... ever !!!!! I was scared you were going to start playing Calipso music or something with flowery necklaces ! !! !!!!!!! WTF !!!! .. but I do like the CD cover, very fresh and summer-y !!!

Posted by crystaldoll at 9:34pm, 24 Aug 2013

Thank you Helena and Rosie for being the voices of reason! I just wanted to say what great value for money I think my CD package is. I get over 30 songs, a lot of which I don't know, two brand new ones, and a poster, for under £20. A lot of thought has clearly gone into it, it's nicely presented, and the track listing shows they've obviously been reading what we like. It hasn't been rushed out just to make a bit more money. A excellent deal all round!

Posted by indiegirl1980 at 8:08pm, 21 Aug 2013

I think that a solo work is part of the natural development of an artist. I hope Tom reaches the deserved success like Tim and Jesse has made with M.Desolation. And naturally, I pray that our boys don't get separated.

Posted by angelrosie2011 at 6:45pm, 21 Aug 2013

Where is 'On a day like today" ? One of the most beautiful but forgotten songs by Keane. It should be on the acoustic list also.

Posted by JHanna02 at 10:29pm, 20 Aug 2013

PEOPLE, What's happening here????????????????????? Only 10 years are past!...... Keane are not going to split / break up!... What Tim is without Tom and vice-versa????????????? They are extremely connected: talent and voice!... So, don't think about it!!! Let's ALL enjoy the BIG SUCESS that de "BEST OFF KEANE" will be!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Para Tim: "Mercury Records". Tim Rice crearà su propia discografia: Rice Oxley Records ? Barcelona. Marisa.

Posted by OXFORDD at 1:16pm, 20 Aug 2013

Para Tom: Mercury grabó dos álbunes como solista i lanzó muchos sencillos. Pese a que sus trabajos no fueron tan comercilamente exitosos como sus álbunes con Queen. "Mr. Bad Guy" y "Barcelona". La canción hizo además que Mercury ganara un premio Ivor Novello su propia versión "The Grat Pretender" álbum Lover of Live, Singer of songs. Le hicieron una estátua en homenaje a Freddie Mercury en Lago Leman. Barcelona. Marisa.

This is wonderful news and just what I wanted! Thank you so very much, guys! Congratulations on ten years of making us so happy and see you on Sunday!

Posted by Marigold at 10:18pm, 19 Aug 2013

Why in hell and heaven could I not find "A bad dream" in the list of songs that could be voted????!!!!!!!! I had to choose another one and of course I had plenty of options..... but can anyone please tell me if not all Keane songs are in the list? Gracias.

Posted by modartcri at 9:41pm, 19 Aug 2013

Is it any wonder ? Es la canción más rockera i que me recuerda a Jimy Hendrix. He votado ésta. Aunque hay muchísimas preciosas. Barcelona. Marisa.

Each one of your albums is the best, dear guys, and this is the best so far. Listening to your songs I learn that the best is yet to come, always. Congrats and thank you Keane!!! Lots of love from Argentina ♥♥♥♥

Para Tim Rice: no pude ir a Cap Roig. Tengo un acúfano que me lo están tratando. Lo lamenté muchísimo. Tenia una foto de Paul Saunders y deseaba que me la firmaran detrás. Oigo el sonido de las teclas de mi piano de alquiler distorsionadas. Pero estoy algo mejor que cuando empecé a tener un pitido altísimo dentro de mi cabeza. Me alegro por lo The Best of Keane. Qué difícil escoger una canción. Para mí "Allemande" es la esencia pura de Keane. "Bedshaped" es preciosa. "Is it any wonder" tiene un ritmo brutal. "Nothing in my way". etc etc etc. Es una aventura que Tom Chaplin quiera cantar en solitario. Me pregunto que hará el resto del grupo. Una vez Tim, dijiste, que seguías esperando aquella composición que fuera un bombazo, como ABBA en sus canciones. Creo que tienes mucho por demostrar. Eres un compositor para mi gusto excelente. Marisa. Barcelona.

@Dra_House and Gudrun : YES FRIENDS ! C'est la fête !!! :) It's party time !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by athallie at 11:47pm, 17 Aug 2013

Wow, it's really a great moment in Keane's history !!! 10 ans déjà. I just come back from holidays and I discover this fabulous news, I am so happy ! And you must not remember, but I wanted so much a B-sides album in 2009…so 1000 mercis for the B-sides choice ! It’s a superb gift to your fans. A collection of beautiful melancholy songs. Nevertheless, I must confess I have some divergences with your setlist. For me, you have forgotten gorgeous songs : The frog Prince, The lovers are losing, Black Burning Heart, and Clear Skies. And what about the magnificent Strangeland (on Deluxe edition ) ? Ah non alors !!! Is it already too late to change ? A bientôt KM, mes amitiés à Pitney & Archie ;)

Posted by athallie at 11:39pm, 17 Aug 2013

I have ordered my Super Deluxe CD/DVD/Book set, but I thought it was a bit expensive at £50. I was very surprised at the shipping cost though, it was £10! I am in the UK too, so I don't know why Sandbag are charging this amount. I read the interview with Tom on the Q website before I knew about the album, and I am worried that they are taking a break. With Tom working on Solo songs, I'm scared that this might be the end of Keane :((

Posted by ClaireM at 11:30pm, 17 Aug 2013

I totally agree with their collections for the best of Keane.

Awesome news guys...thanks!!!...hugs and kisses from CHILE...hope you come back soon!!!

Thank you so much for this!!!!! I feel really proud of you and so fortunated for being fan of yours, i know you hear this all the time but i really mean this...you are the best band in the world!!! We love you so much here in México!! And please come back soon!!!!!!!

Posted by sariux at 7:48pm, 17 Aug 2013

Gracias por todo estos años de felicidad a su lado. Han dado un cambio al estilo de música que existe, sintiéndome orgulloso por su visita a PERU la cual fue grata e inolvidable. Siempre los tengo presente y que sigan mas años juntos que hay KEANE para rato. YOU´RE THE BEST - KEANE FOREVER

Our boys have a lot to celebrate: after years fighting bravely for a place in the sun, in 2004 they finally got the deserved recognition. Currently, after 10 years of a solid and successful career, they are a great pride to their families and million of fans. They are an inspiration to us all. Go ahead Keane, the next 10 years are just beginning!

Posted by angelrosie2011 at 6:47pm, 17 Aug 2013

They are not splitting up are they? I thought that's when bands put out - the best of albums!

Posted by AnnetteM at 6:09pm, 17 Aug 2013

Looking forward to hearing all the B sides, have to admit am not familiar with them all but that's going to be a great discovery, like a new album out! great idea for the 10th anniversary. well done to all.

Thank you Keane~! I'm so happy@@

Posted by happysong at 4:06pm, 17 Aug 2013

I've never commented on the style of these pages before but having to say I love the new colour combination. Just musing on the voting process for the dvd and wonder if the existing album tracks have an advantage of familiarity to the wider audience. I would personally prefer to hear a reworking of the less well known tracks. Guess there is scope for more than one dvd somewhere down the line.

Posted by CAILY at 12:28pm, 17 Aug 2013

I KNEW this was coming! It's nice to have all of the songs in one place, and I'm looking forward to the B-Sides as I don't buy singles, so I'm ashamed to say that I don't actually know them, although I've heard of them all. Does anyone else think that this should have had a title of its own? I was thinking Still Here, being both a line from Neon River and holding up two fingers at the naysayers i.e: 'We're still here, so there'. I think that the boys look a bit dopey in the pictures, it would be nice to have more of a group one of them smiling, but maybe that's the ones inside the booklet.
