Hopes And Fears was certified 9 times Platinum in the UK and has sold over 10 million copies worldwide, spawning the singles Everybody's Changing, Somewhere Only We Know and Bedshaped.
However, singer Tom Chaplin recalls that the band lacked confidence when they started out.
He told the NME: "We didn’t really understand how to make it all work - we were just three kids from a small town in the middle of nowhere, so we didn’t we didn’t have many reference points. We didn’t really know what we were doing."
The track Somewhere Only We Know has recently enjoyed a revival on Tik Tok, when it went viral in Indonesia. The song is now currently clocking up two million Spotify streams a day, and in the past 12 months has become Island Records’ biggest selling single. In total it has been streamed over a billion times.
