For the first time since the 2004 original pressing, Keane’s debut album Hopes And Fears will be reissued on vinyl. The album was hugely successful and sold over 5 million copies worldwide, but only 5000 were pressed on vinyl. As such, original mint vinyl pressings of Hopes And Fears are hard to come by, and sell for over $300.00 on Discogs.
The good news for those wanting a copy of this great album on vinyl: on 4 August 2017, the vinyl reissue will be released.
Amazon UK has the pre-order page up already:
Keane – Hopes And Fears vinyl pre-order (B072B9M6Q3) – £20.07 ($25 shipped to US)
As does Amazon US:
And £20.07 is a whole lot less than $300.00
