Keane drummer Richard Hughes said he’s “horrified” that the Conservative party played the band’s 2004 single ‘Everybody’s Changing’ at their general election manifesto conference in south London this morning (April 13).

Writing on his Twitter page,, Hughes said that the band had not been asked for permission to air the track.

“Told the Tories played Keane at their manifesto launch,” he wrote. “Am horrified. To be clear – we were not asked. I will not vote for them.”

David Bowie‘s ‘Changes’ was also played at the conference, which was attended by 500 Tory candidates plus new members, supporters and the media.
