Tom Chaplin, "the voice of Keane", is going solo, but cautiously:
A source shared: ''Tom didn't want to rush his first record. He wanted it to be perfect.Tom, sweetheart; I've heard foxes on heat screeching in the night who are capable of withstanding comparisons to Keanes - cough - amazing back catalogue.
''He's taken his time and now feels he has the makings of an album that can withstand the comparisons to Keane's amazing back catalogue.''
''Tom isn't afraid to get personal on the album.Ah, who can wait until Christmas to hear "my struggle" from the boy who went to Tonbridge School (which is more costly than either Eton or Harrow)?
''His bandmate Tim Rice-oxley wrote the majority of Keane's tracks so Tom didn't always get the chance to explore his inner demons. Now it's his project he feels a lot more liberated.
''There will be more lyrics about his own struggle than ever heard on the band's records.''
