Simple Minds Release A Bit Of Magic
The first single from Simple Minds forthcoming new album is titled ‘Magic’.
With several music sources rating the new single as classic Simple Minds, lead singer Jim Kerr and guitarist Charlie Burchill continue their creative journey after many years together with the upcoming release of long player ‘Walk Between Worlds’, which is out 2nd February on BMG.
To support the single ‘Magic’, a 3D animated video has been produced featuring a dancer who provides a visual interpretation of Simple Minds’ single in various different ways. With the music video directed by Argentinian Esteban Diacono, the band are said to be extremely pleased with the end result as it combines smart techniques and fantastic visual effects.
