KEANE have decided to celebrate the completion of their hugely anticipated third album by giving away a new song, Spiralling, to fans for free.

The track will be made available to download for free from August 4 at 11am (after an exclusive Jo Whiley play on Radio 1), for one week, from

It will be available to buy from the usual download platforms from August 12.

Spiralling is written and produced by Keane and was recorded in Berlin’s Teldex Studio earlier this year. Tom Chaplin describes the song as “a train of thought about human endeavour, built on an outrageous groove”.

Sounding unlike anything they have ever recorded before, it bears the unmistakeable confidence of a band in its prime.

Keane have released two multi-platinum albums Hopes and Fears (2004) and Under The Iron Sea (2006) and both went straight to number one on release.

The first single proper will be The Lovers Are Losing, released on October 6, 2008.

Keane’s third album Perfect Symmetry will be released on October 13, 2008. Find out more
