News Flash 2... or tell me life is beautiful



The next Keane single, "Crystal Ball," is the most obvious hit on the album. A blazin' stadium singalong, its dodgy chorus lyrics are swallowed enough that you can't tell they are bad! The track has a moving middle eight (gold stars from this blog) and the final 1:10 is fucking massive, dude! The release date is August 21 and the b-sides are "Maybe I Can Change" and (lamely) "The Iron Sea (Magic Shop Version)."

oh i am glad this is the second single - some had it down as Leaving So Soon which i wasn't happy about at all! Bit rubbish with the b-sides but it means it will be out the day after i see them live at V festival so i may be all into them by that time...
