Video memories #7: Higher The The Sun

24 Mar 2014

To celebrate the release of The Best Of Keane (out now - get it from Amazon or iTunes), we asked the band to share their memories of the official videos of the songs from the album. Next up is Richard, on Higher Than The Sun.

We have always wanted to do another animation (after the brilliant Bedshaped video by our friend Corin Hardy) and this seemed like a great time to look back through the years. This song celebrates music, and the video celebrates a ton of different images, scenes and memories in ten years of Keane. Spot the many references to old artwork, and the tours that followed.



#6 Bedshaped
#5 DIsconnected
#4 Atlantic
#3 Spiralling
#2 Silenced By The Night
#1 Bend And Break

I never really liked the song, but the video was great, and the celebration of the 10 years was touching.

Yes Richie it's a great video! Indeed, the 3 new songs from the latest album (the wonderful The Best Of Keane) are incredible.

El vídeo es el recorrido de Keane desde su inicio. Tim puede tocar una pieza entera de Mozart ??

I love this song, and the video- the energy of the 10+ years you've been together as a band just runs through the whole song :) (I know Jesse wasn't there for the whole time, but he's well integrated with you guys now :D).
