"Try Again" is a song performed and composed by English piano rock and alternative rock band Keane that appears as the tenth track on their second album, "Under the Iron Sea". The song was released as the fifth single off the album, and currently is being only sold in Germany. [ [] ] This is also Keane's first single with three b-sides, all live performances in Duisburg, Germany; however, the band have no record of having played recently there.

Trance act Blank & Jones remixed the single though their production has yet to be released. However, they have played their remix out during their live DJ sets and passed it onto other top name DJ/Producers as the likes of Armin van Buuren, who premiered on his radio show "A State of Trance."

Composition and recording

It was composed by Tim Rice-Oxley in early 2005, and first played live two weeks after composed by Rice-Oxley. The song was first played with the electric piano and a tambourine as very much a work-in-progress, and as a result was shorter than the recorded version. The album version includes drums and an extended outro, with the distortion piano Tim began to use on "Put It Behind You".

Rufus Wainwright was asked by Keane to sing this song along with Chaplin at the Wireless Music Festival on June 29,2005. Chaplin apparently wanted Wainwright to also play the piano but he refused.

*Tempo: 72bpm
*Key: EbMaj7
*Time signature: 4/4 8-beat

It was recorded and at the Heliosentric Studios, Rye, East Sussex and at The Magic Shop, New York in late 2005.
