The Magic Gang have released their brand new single ‘Take Back The Track’, out now via Warner.
The single is the second song to preview the album after ‘Think’. It immediately made an impact at Radio 1 as it premiered as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record in the World, while Jack Saunders subsequently named it as Tune of the Week.
To date, it has been playlisted for four weeks at Radio 1. Further radio play also came from Matt Wilkinson at Beats 1 and John Kennedy at Radio X.

‘Take Back The Track’ previews their eagerly anticipated second album Death of the Party, which will be released on August 21. It was recorded in Atlanta with the Grammy-winning producer Ben H. Allen (Deerhunter, Animal Collective, Gnarls Barkley).
Although separated by lockdown, The Magic Gang’s video for their new song ‘Take Back The Track’ uses the current situation as a strength rather than a limitation.
The four members unite on video for an online rehearsal, during which the only distraction appears to be the attention of drummer Paeris Giles’ cat. But they’re joined by the mysterious presence of User1234 who threatens, “I’m going to destroy your rehearsal.” And from there, things get stranger still.
The video represents the quartet’s second inventive creative project during the current crisis. It follows their recent Love Songs initiative, in which they wrote and recorded homemade songs for fans separated by lockdown.
