A spokesman for the band confirmed: "Keane are taking a break after the Best Of to pursue their own projects."

The four-piece are said to remain close friends and want to go out on a high.

Keane's Ivor Novello-winning main songwriter Tim Rice-Oxley is now planning to collaborate with other popstars, having already worked with the likes of Kylie Minogue and Gwen Stefani.

It was recently reported that Lily Allen will cover their 2004 hit 'Somewhere Only We Know' for this year's John Lewis Christmas advert.
