The Runaway is the third album from London indie-rock band The Magic Numbers. The Stodart and Gannon siblings reveal a rather upbeat side on this offering, compared to their 2006 release Those the Brokes. The album features string arrangements by Robert Kirby (Nick Drake, Elvis Costello), who died in 2009, with The Runaway ultimately proving to be his final piece of work.
