Everybody's ChangingEdit

The first Retrospective EP was the band's 2003 and 2004 hit single "Everybody's Changing", from their debut album Hopes and Fears. The final track "Into the Light" was never released, and features pianist Rice-Oxley on lead vocals. Although this is the third release by the band marketed as an EP, none of them has actually featured the common studio CD format.
