The Magic Numbers and Riverman Management have partnered with Absolute Label Services for the band’s upcoming new album Outsiders.
The deal will see Absolute provide a full range of services including sales, marketing, distribution and sync. It also means that the band will have access to the Absolute Project data portal and the Absolute Insider AI assistant, given them unrivalled insight across their business.
Outsiders will be released via the band’s own Role Play Records on May 11, 2018 with first single Sweet Divide being released on February 23. The new LP sees the multi-platinum selling, Mercury Prize nominated London quartet return after a three-year hiatus.
The Magic Numbers (pictured) released their self-titled debut album in 2005 and saw it peak at No.7 on the Official UK Albums Chart. Since then they have had Top 20 singles with Forever Lost, Love Me Like You, I See You You See Me and Take a Chance. The band have had in excess of 25 million streams on Spotify.
