Keane have release a video for their latest single, ‘Love Too Much’, which comes ahead of the release of the band’s first album, in seven years. The release of the band’s most recent single, ‘Love Too Much’, is accompanied by “a hilariously nostalgic” video, which will feature on Keane’s upcoming fifth studio album, ‘Cause and Effect’.
The East Sussex quartet’s latest single, ‘Love Too Much’, sees the band return to their roots with their signature piano-driven sound. The band’s latest song, ‘Love Too Much’, was written and produced by the quartet themselves, with added production from David Kosten.
The video, which has accompanied the band’s latest track, ‘Love Too Much’, was directed by Lochlainn McKenna (AKA Locky), and sees an unlucky in love primary school teacher desperately trying, to get the love of a fellow teacher, but ultimately failing to do so.
The video sees all four member of Keane take on different roles; Tom Chaplin features as the awkward P.E. teacher, Tim Rice-Oxley features as the too cool for school history teacher, drummer Richard Hughes features as the confused and tired maths teacher, and bassist Jesse Quin features as the eccentric, enthusiastic art teacher.
Speaking about the concept of the video, bassist Jesse Quin, said: “Our hope was that we’d come up with a light-hearted and fun, but emotionally compelling look at the idea of loving maybe a little too much. Though it may fall apart, we can find some solace in the memories of what was – ‘Nothing can take that away from me.'”
The release of the video comes as the band prepares for the release of their fifth studio album, which will be released on the 20th of September 2019, it is also the band’s first in seven years. Returning from a six year hiatus, during which has seen them go through a lot from drug addiction and the break down of a marriage, to a drunk driving incident. However, the band are back and have came out of the other side with a collection of raw and emotional material that will make up their forthcoming album, ‘Cause and Effect’.
The much loved British band have four consecutive number one albums to their name, and with their fifth on the way, they are preparing to make their way to the top of the charts, once again. The latest single, ‘Love Too Much’, is the second track to be released from the upcoming album, ‘Cause and Effect’, the first being ‘The Way I Feel’, which has been as sounding like a track from the Killers.
