British band Keane have hired cult Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh to direct the first music video from their forthcoming sophomore album. The short film, which will not feature any members of the rock trio, will accompany the experimental single ATLANTIC, the opening track on new album UNDER THE IRON SKY. Drummer RICHARD HUGHES reveals, "We didn't want to just make it a conventional pop video - we wanted to create a piece of music art. "Through a mutual friend, we heard Irvine was keen to direct videos. He'd never done one before. "So we sent him Atlantic - which is a bit of a musical departure for us - and he liked the song. We met him and really hit it off."
