EVERYBODY'S CHANGING RETROSPECTIVE EP

UPDATE: Unfortunately, there was a slight error in the audio on a couple of the EP's tracks, but the problems have now been sorted. If you've already bought and downloaded the EP, then go back to your download 'basket' to re-download the EP. You can download it up to three times, so there should be no problem getting the new version. We also hear that a few of you have had trouble watching the video interview on Apple Macs. This problem has also now been fixed and the video is viewable for all
of those who have Windows Media player on their computers. Those with Macs who still can't see the video should try downloading this application.

We're very pleased to announce the launch of a special new run of digital retrospective EPs, which will only be available via the keanemusic.com shop. The idea is that these EPs will bring together some of the rarest Keane tracks, giving the band's most loyal fans (ie you lot) the chance to own them.

We begin with an Everybody's Changing-themed collection of songs. For £3.95, you'll get the following tracks as high-quality MP3s (which means they'll play on any player, including iPods). None of these are available elsewhere - and the video chat has been made especially.

EVERYBODY'S CHANGING EP
1. Original demo
2. Demo from July 2002
3. Fierce Panda version
4. Live version from first Lamacq Live electric session on Radio 1
5. Demo of Fly To Me (Everybody's Changing B-side)
6. Demo of Into The Light (Unreleased Song)
7. Video chat of Tim interviewed by Tom about Everybody's Changing

You can download the EP now from here, for £3.95 (it's available to km.com users worldwide).

Tim has very kindly written us some accompanying notes on each of the songs:

Original demo

I wrote Everybody’s Changing some time in early 2002. I remember sitting at the piano at my Mum and Dad’s house one evening and playing the piano riff, then writing a song to fit around the riff.

We were working on Bend And Break and some other songs at that time, and I didn’t think Everybody’s Changing was as good a song, so I didn’t put much effort into the demo. However when I played it to the Tom and Richard and our friends at BMG Publishing (who had just signed us), they all loved it, so we finished the lyrics and went to work on it properly.

Fierce Panda version

We spent the rest of 2002 playing gigs wherever we could. Everybody’s Changing developed a lot during this period. Initially we tried to make it into a very electronic thing, with a bit of a Massive Attack vibe – we were listening to Mezzanine a lot at the time (see track 2). It always felt too contrived though, and like many of the tracks that ended up on Hopes And Fears, it eventually came full circle and ended up revolving around real drums and the CP70 piano. We bought a Roland Juno 6 (an old analogue synth) from a guy in Bexhill, plugged it in and pretty much the first thing to come out of it was the synthy ‘blips’ and ‘sweeps’ you hear on the finished song.

At the end of 2002 we were feeling pretty despondent about the prospect of anyone ever actually hearing our music – we’d been turned down by what seemed like every record label in the UK! We decided to play a couple of very small Christmas shows to round off the year, and Simon Williams of legendary indie label Fierce Panda came along. He told us he wanted to release Everybody’s Changing as a single in the new year. So we polished up the demo, cobbled together some artwork (it’s a collage of two photographs – one of Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire, and one of the field outside my parents’ house), and handed it over to Simon. Next thing we knew Steve Lamacq was playing it on Radio 1.

Live version from first Lamacq Live Electric session on Radio 1

The Radio 1 session included here was the first of many visits to the BBC’s famous Maida Vale studios. My main recollection of the day is that we were incredibly nervous – as you can probably tell! It was a really exciting experience though, and a lot of fun. It was the first time we’d met and heard The Zutons too - we enjoyed their session so much that we asked them to open for us in America a few months later.
 
Demo of Fly To Me (Everybody's Changing B-side)

Fly To Me is one of my favourite Keane songs, and it always makes me a bit emotional! I did the demo for it very quickly, and cobbled together a solo using my new melodica that I’d bought in Berlin while we were supporting Starsailor. When we needed a B-side for Everybody’s Changing, we went into the old Island Studios in St Peter’s Square to add some real drums, vocals, and so on. I remember that for some reason Steve Winwood’s Hammond organ was in the studio, so we put some of that on the song. I also recall sitting on the steps of the studio desperately trying to finish the lyrics, with our allotted studio time rapidly running out. We were so short of time that we used all my rough vocals and BVs from the demo to double-track Tom’s vocal in the choruses. By a lucky chance, the combination created a really haunting vocal sound, and I think that’s one of the things that makes the song so atmospheric and moving.
 
Into The Light Demo (Unreleased Song)

You can tell I was listening to Air quite a lot at the time I wrote this. It’s an interesting song sonically, quite weird and ghostly. I think there’s a recognisable link to Untitled 1, although which came first I really can’t remember. Funnily enough I think the electro vibe and the sparseness are actually closer to some of the tracks on Perfect Symmetry than to the feel of Hopes And Fears, so maybe in Keane terms it was just too far ahead of its time?!

I totally agree with everybody... I'm keen on a CD of all these old songs as I don't know enough + an album of covers... And if possible, to buy the whole in the shops. OMG, I think I'm really too much addicted because when I'm doing some shopping in my little local supermaket, it happens that I go and take a look just to see PS in shelvings !!!...

Posted by gero30 at 7:06pm, 06 Dec 2008

@Vic! Finally! A compillation of their elder songs. I've had this wish in my mind for avery long time. Why not release an entire CD with some of their old songs in addition the EPs? For example : Walnut tree,Let it slide, Allemande, On a day like today, Happy soldier, To the end of the world, More matey. I don't know how much influence you have, but it seems that some of our suggestions are heard either by the band or people from km.com. I would be delighted to receive answer, think I'm not the only one . Till then I'm content with the EP.

Hi guys, I'm from Argentina, I just bought your new CD perfect symmetry and I wanted to tell you that it's veery different from the last two others CDs, I mean, before, when you started a song there was a intro with cool sounds of piano and all that. Now you're a little bit different but I must say that I really like this new sound and look. Thanks again for this awsom music that makes me say that keane is my philosophy, thanks a lot and please continue doing what you best do and do not ever change!

Posted by verodelca at 2:22am, 06 Dec 2008

Keane is the best band!!! These guys are genius!! You know, I like Fly to me too, it makes me a bit emotional too. It reminds me of a friend. Just Keane have an amazing site like this that keep us informed and put great pics and a lot of things more. Love from Argentina and hope to see you by here soon. KEANE ROCKS!!

I was supposed to sleep at this time...but I have some little thing to whisper. First, I really love the 2002 EC demo. I prefer this demo rather than the official version. Weird isn't it? I think that it's because of the melodic side of the thing. Second, about the interview, I think that it was interesting to remember those moments of pure inspiration. Necessarily another kind of insparation. Third, the Fly To Me demo is...hhmm...just incredible. I confess that, whether the demo or the official version, I can't hear this song fully without tears in my eyes. It's because of the lyrics. And the melody necesserly. And a last thing about Into The Light: wonderfull, but not deepens, not finished. Yeah!...I know that it's a demo guy...hahaha! Well! Now that I have done my job, I'M GOING TO MY BBBEEEDDD!!!I derserve it. And don't worry about me, I'm rarely go to sleep until 2 o'clock in the morning. ( LA: 4:59 pm, France: 1:59 am)

I loved the interview with Tim & Tom, so much information and stories of how songs come about - I love all that stuff. Thank you all so much for doing this EP it's genius. Hope you do more. Love you guys, Dawn K (Sussex) xx

Ooooh ! What a great treat you give us, guys ! This EP is really nice ! Thank you for that ! The EC 2002 demo version is nothing less than superb ! It's so different, lighter and more "airy" than the H&F version... and the Tim's chorus behind are simply lovely ! I love this demo even more than the album version ! lol The more I listen to it, the more I have the impression to come back 4 years earlier and discover EC for the first time ! The Fly to me demo is also very nice... And Into the light is... special... but I like it ! It reminds me Tyderian and Untitled 1 indeed. Very nice to have all these versions ! Thank you again ! Lots of love ! Mariexxx

Thank you!! I've downloaded my EP and .... I love "fly to me" demo. It is one of my TopTen favourite songs of the band and I love listening Tim singing keane songs. Also "Everybody's changing demo 2002" is amazing, so electronic and ...in the meanwhile much more sweet than the Hopes&Fears version...not too far from Fierce Panda version which I already own in my precious keane collection. Tim was right [of course he is =) ] about "Into the light"'s likeness with some tracks of "perfect symmetry"...who knows how many secret demos you have in your laptop!!??!! Thanks for sharing with us. Lots of love. Simona - Florence - ITALY

Posted by sim163 at 7:42pm, 05 Dec 2008

Into The Light to begin with is pretty strange but is very catchy after a few listens, loving the Fly To Me and the more electronic Everybodys Changing which to me is better than the one on H&F

Hello Keane, ho appena finito di guardare le foto del vostro live di ieri sera a Los Angeles: Tom, tu mi sei sembrato molto appassionato, hai dato tutto te stesso in questo concerto! Tim complimenti per il tuo abbigliamento: avevi delle scarpe e una maglietta con tonalità molto vivaci e allegre, hai un modo di vestire fantasioso ma allo stesso tempo semplice e senza eccessi! Comunque mi piace molto anche il look del resto della band, ultimamente noto che amate molto indossare questi capi così originali e pieni di colori accesi! Richard, grazie per le spiegazioni che sempre dai sui problemi del computer: non preoccuparti se non riesci a inserire nuove foto, purtroppo queste cose capitano viaggiando! Tim, sono molto interessanti le news sulle vostre canzoni, proprio ieri notte ho sognato di ascoltare in radio " EVERYBODY'S CHANGING " e oggi voi ne state parlando, che bella coincidenza!Ieri ho avuto le prove d' orchestra nella mia scuola, adesso vi racconto una furbizia degli alunni: avevamo raccomandato a quelli che suonano la tastiera di tenerne alto il volume , dal momento che gli altri strumenti sono molti di più rispetto a loro, invece è successo che durante le prove il suono delle tastiere neanche si percepiva,noi insegnanti ci chiedevamo: com'è possibile? Al che i due uomini sono partiti in perlustrazione : le tastiere erano tutte messe al minimo , erano stati proprio i ragazzini a sistemarle cosi' per evitare che si sentissero errori , poi ci hanno pensato i miei colleghi a risistemarle e i ragazzini sono rimasti, con le loro facce dispettose, certo sono molto divertenti a pensarci bene, ma ci avevano presi per stupidi? Vi mando tanti saluti cari Keane, a presto dalla Catanese Sabrina!!!

Hi Keane, I find the success very good that makes and the commercial eye of they must use to advantage the beauty and the talent that they possess. Because they do not record and you sell shows that they make for each Country. Here in Brazil we finish buying of a friend who homemade edited a video of the show, because with arms, hands and heads in our front, many times alone we could tan the sound. Each fan wants to have kept the emotion to have attended the Keane and to have some moments of the show. Little kisses to all and we wait anxiously for the next show in São Paulo. Everybody's Changing is the great song, I love this song, forever. ; )

Hi guys! Good afternoon Tom, Tim, Jesse and Richard. Thank you Mr. RICE-OXLEY for the pre-Christmas present. I'm sure that I'll enjoy to hear it; Soon...I hope! I've just listened to your radio show on KRCW. I am forced to admit, as my colleague Agnès said, but Jason BENTLEY's presentation was really class. Guys, you look in the top of the form today! It was a real treat! Thank you! I am really pleased to see that Los Angeles agree with you. Hope that you'll all have a lot of fun at The Echo gig tonight. I am with you wholeheartedly. Enjoy your stay in L.A.! Lots of kisses from La France. Bye...

Gosh these are amazing, just listened to Into The Light and it's kind of something you'd expect to hear on PS but i like it, not straight away but it's growing on me, this is just awesome, thanks guys.

Posted by Hopes at 9:51pm, 04 Dec 2008

Helo! I am in return… after work trip…I am very tired, but I took Keane with me in the trip and everything was much more light and easy to decide... i love you, boys... a love KEANE. Definitively, they are part of my life! Forever! Kisses... 1 million of kisses for all... JACQUELINE MATOS - CURITIBA - BRAZIL ;-))

OMG, I was already in despair in regard to some interviews made in France, but the impressive quality of Jason BENTLEY's presentation was the end of me !!!... Let's say it was a bit mess in France but we love you anyway !... Well, I left everything to listen this Live and then after, I came back to my dirty dinner plates... Charming !... A retrospective, déjà ?... So then, you're old... Too old for me !!!... KEANE, congrats and big thanks about wonderful gigs, love for music, to share pics and few souvenirs here, and so on...

Thanks, Tim, for the little details. My hubby has ordered it for me, so this kiss is for him. x

Posted by sam (uk) at 9:09pm, 04 Dec 2008

That´s great, also the info from Tim! Thanks, would be nice if I could get more info from PS, too! So, I orderd it also, but when can I download it? In the store, where I work they put your CD "PS" now at least as advertising (special price), but people buy more AC/DC. At least Oasis, we didn´t sell more than yours! H&F still is getting saled as it also has a very special price, like Amy Winehouse first album "Frank". But the DVD from Mamma Mia, oh man, people are crazy about this movie! And when the DVD from The Dark Knight will be released, right before Christmas, people will be more crazy?Sorry, for this excursus! When can I download the EP?

Posted by Johanna at 9:09pm, 04 Dec 2008

thnks for this great new!!, we love you boys!! KISSES FROM CHILE!! come back soon!!! C'YA!!

Posted by niza at 8:02pm, 04 Dec 2008

Oh thanks guys for this present ! I can't wait to hear that "into the light" song, as Untitled 1 is one of my favourite Keane song ever !

Posted by _Marinaaa at 8:00pm, 04 Dec 2008

Well, I JUST saw you guys on my computer LIVE at KCRW! It did me a world of good to watch it. Cos, I was feeling pretty down in the dumps about not being able to fly to LA (but I am still very sad that I can't make it for any of the shows). But seeing you uys live (on the CPU screen at least) was pretty aweosme, and fun. I was probably hyperventilating right before you guys came on. YOu guys did awesome and I hope to see you soon! Love you lots and lots! -- Missy

Posted by Missy at 8:00pm, 04 Dec 2008

Posted by xxfilmfiendxx at 7:02pm, 04 Dec 2008

They were recording disco2000 at the studio so i guess (and hope) this song to be a bside for PS. Hope they include an unreleased song as well...

Posted by divangel at 6:58pm, 04 Dec 2008

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I'm sorry but I'm going to have to use caps to try and convey my emotions. OMG THIS IS THE BEST IDEA YOUVE EVER EVER EVER HAD IT IS AMAZING!!!!!! I'M SO EXCITED I absolutely utterly EXTREMELY love the H&F b-sides, some are even better than songs on the album, I think even my top 5 keane songs are b-sides , I'm so excited I l feel like it's my birthday! Och, I still haven't expressed it enough. This is frustrating. anyway, I love you guys at km.com and Tim - you are the best song writer in the history of music. full stop.

Posted by weary traveller at 6:55pm, 04 Dec 2008

Posted by KARI FROM SPAIN at 6:45pm, 04 Dec 2008

Oh my goodness! You always come up with something for your fans! And what a wonderful surprise it is! Thank you! I guess I've never used that word so much before. It may not operate any more.Some variations would be welcome perhaps: I appreciate; great! ; you make my day; merci, c'est gentil. £ 3.95: c'est une somme modique, messieurs, pour ces chansons rares. And reading the comments was interesting too. I hope you're enjoying your stay in LA. Have great gigs!

Posted by Mihajasoa at 6:45pm, 04 Dec 2008

Hi Tim, nice look! I like it! My bro is a Longhorn Alum. and has season tickets to different sports events. I got to go to a basketball game...the Texas Longhorns against the Rice Owls! The Owls lost...but they had pretty blue uniforms! I passed on the football game..everyone is bummed that the Longhorns are now ranked 3 rd...Oh well...Hope all is well.......

Posted by caroline davis at 6:40pm, 04 Dec 2008
