Keane singles chronology

"Sovereign Light Café" is a song by English alternative rock band Keane released as the third single from their fourth studio album, Strangeland.

The band played the song for first time during the Perfect Symmetry World Tour on 17 September 2009 in Thunder Bay Ontario.

The band announced on their official website: "With Strangeland sitting atop the UK album chart for a second week, we're pleased to report that the next single to be taken from the album will be Sovereign Light Café, which is released on 16th July".[1]

The song is written with inspiration drawn from the town of Bexhill-on-Sea, East Sussex where the café is located in real life and also the town of Battle where many of the roads mentioned are, close to where the members of Keane grew up.[2]
