2012 was seven years ago, and it was the year Keane released its most recent album — but on September 20, the long-running English rock/pop band will return with Cause and Effect, the first bit of music released after the group’s five-year hiatus.

The album, the band’s fifth overall, was previewed on Thursday with the premiere of a music video for “The Way I Feel,” a catchy and powerful anthem that ought to do quite well on the charts:

As the news release detailed, neither Keane as a unit nor lead singer Tom Chaplin were really expecting this burst of creativity to strike when it did:

The birth of this new album came as something of a surprise even to the band. Singer Tom Chaplin had released two successful solo albums but missed his old sparring partner Tim Rice-Oxley. “I found myself wondering how I had come to let this very enigmatic and important relationship in my life drift,” Tom says.
Meanwhile Tim found his life falling apart and from the ashes had written an album’s worth of incredibly personal songs fuelled by humour as well as pain.  When Tom, bassist Jesse Quin and drummer Richard Hughes heard the songs, they were immediately drawn to them both sonically and lyrically.
“Hopes and Fears was a break-up album too, but it was about a break-up when I was 19,” Tim explains. “It’s a bit different when you’re older and you’ve got kids – your whole little world shifts on its axis.”

In addition to the new song and album news, Keane announced some tour dates, including special shows in Los Angeles and New York in the fall:
