The Magic Numbers self-titled debut album was originally released in June 2005 becoming one of the albums of the year and receiving a Mercury nomination. This 15 year anniversary digital-only release comes with a plethora of bonus tracks many of which have never before released digitally, and some that are to be made available for the first time ever.

As well as the original album in full, the bonus tracks are a combination of early home recordings, Swedish demo versions, and live performances. The full tracklisting is below.

The digital download pre-order will be announced in forthcoming weeks from the Magic Numbers socials - Twitter, Facebook, Instagram

The Magic Numbers formed in late 2002 in Hanwell, west London. A uniquely set up band of two sets of brother and sister - Romeo and Michele Stodart and Angela and Sean Gannon - they started playing shows through London honing their sound and along the way picking up a who’s who of fans including the likes of The Chemical Brothers, Travis, Ed Harcourt and Noel Gallagher.

Following their signing to Heavenly, their popularity grew rapidly starting in 2004. With just two singles released - the limited edition 7” ‘Hymn for Her’ and ‘Forever Lost’ - they went on to sell out three nights at the legendary Borderline. They then played a sold-out show to a crowd of over 2,000 at The Forum in Kentish Town - an incredible feat considering their debut album was still not released.

When the album was finally released, the album was met with huge acclaim from the critics and fans alike receiving 5/5 review from Mojo 4/5 reviews from Uncut, Q, Rolling Stone and The Guardian with NME and Pitchfork giving it 8/10. It reached number seven in the UK album charts, selling two times platinum and it was met with similar enthusiasm through Europe.

    The Magic Numbers

    Pop Rock

    The Magic Numbers are a UK-based four-piece comprising two pairs of brothers and sisters (Romeo and Michele Stodart, Sean and Angela Gannon) who are known for their unique harmonies, melodic hooks, songwriting craftsmanship and timeless sound.

    The band quickly shot to media attention after selling out London’s Kentish Town Forum solely on the strength of their loyal following, before the release of their self-titled 2005 debut album. This record was subsequently nominated for the Mercury Music Prize. The Magic Numbers went on to become one of the nation’s best-loved bands and have toured around the world with the likes of Brian Wilson, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, The Flaming Lips, Sonic Youth, The Who, Morrissey, U2 and Bright Eyes to name a few.

    To date, the band have released four successful albums and many of their singles have graced the Top 20 charts including Forever Lost, Love's A Game, Take A Chance, Love Me Like You resulting in over a million album sales worldwide.

    The Magic Numbers have famously collaborated with a number of artists, lending their trademark sound and harmonies to the likes of Ed Harcourt, The Divine Comedy, Duke Special and David Kitt. Romeo wrote a song for Jane Birkin's album ‘Fictions’ and co- wrote ‘Close your eyes’ with The Chemical Brothers for their Grammy-Award-winning album ‘Push The Button’.

    If the group aren’t busy in the studio, lead singer and songwriter Romeo Stodart can usually be found providing his effortless guitar playing for artists as diverse as the legendary Jimmy Webb and, most recently, Spritualized, on whose latest album, ‘Sweet Heart Sweet Light’, he features. Romeo is also an avid supporter of Damon Albarn's Africa Express, having been involved since its conception at Glastonbury’s Park Stage. Out of this have come a number of Magic Numbers collaborations, including on the song ‘All I Believe In’ with Malian stars Amadou & Mariam, featured on the soundtrack to blockbuster smash The Twilight Saga: New Moon.

    Having spent a lot of time in Brazil and Argentina, The Magic Numbers have developed a rapport with their South American audience and discovered a growing love of Tropicalia music. The band contributed the opening track ‘You Don’t Know Me’ to a recent tribute album for Brazilian’s legendary Caetano Veloso.

    Michele Stodart has released two beautifully composed acoustic and country-inspired solo albums on which she plays most of the instruments. Her debut 'Wide Eyed Crossing' features a duet with Conor O’Brien of Villagers on live favourite ‘Invitation to the Blues’.

    The Magic Numbers will be releasing their fifth studio album in May 2018.
