Richards Best of 2011
(Quelle: www.keanemusic.com, 30. Dezember 11 )
Favourite album of 2011: It’s a tie between Noah and the Whale, the Vaccines and Florence and the Machine.
Favourite film of 2011: There have been tons – I tend to tweet about the ones I really enjoy. The best I saw recently was a really brilliant roadtrip film called “Sideways”. I also loved “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” trilogy (the original ones – can’t wait to see Noomi Rapace in the Alien prequel). I also loved “Senna” – I have been an F1 fan as long as I can remember, and visited his grave the first time we went to Sao Paolo.
Favourite single of 2011: L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N. by Noah and the Whale.
Favourite journey of 2011: I went to New York for Halloween with some friends. America does Halloween so much more than the UK – I’d never seen anything like it, but going to China for the first time, driving out to the Great Wall, going to see the National Folk Orchestra, and just being somewhere completely new to me – that was just a fantastic trip.
Favourite Keane moment of 2011: Just being a band – hanging out in the studio together working away on tons of new songs, playing music together.
Thing most looking forward to in 2012: I’m excited for everything that a new album will mean – tours, festivals, going around the world… and lots of new music from other people, too. 2012 is going to be fun.
