The Magic Gang release self-care anthem ‘Make Time For Change’ and announce tour

The Brighton band's new song serves as "a reminder to look after yourself"

The Magic Gang have released sprightly new single ‘Make Time For Change’ as they share details of a headline tour next year.

‘Make Time For Change’ is described as the Brighton band’s take on Northern Soul and comes with an important message: to look after yourself. Lead singer Gus Taylor said the song serves as “a reminder to look after yourself and to encourage yourself to do the things that make you feel good.”

The single, which is the second cut from their forthcoming album ‘Death Of The Party’ (release date revised to August 28), follows ‘What Have You Got To Lose’ shared back in March, as well as ‘Take Back The Track’, and lead single ‘Think’.


It’s accompanied by an animated video made by Laura Jayne Hodkin, which depicts joyous imagery of a summer garden.

Hodkin said of the track: “I loved the positive messages of the song and wanted to make a fun video that really expressed the same carefree, upbeat attitude!”

‘Make Time For Change’ features on the vinyl ‘Bonus Edition’ and digital formats of The Magic Gang’s new album (pre-order bundles here).
