pass init <new_gpg_ID> will do that.
Be sure to use the ID you get by running
gpg --list-key <email>
as only that will be unique.

For checking, create a temporary gnupg setup containing only your new key
but not the old one and try to decrypt your secrets.
pass itself is a little bit low/level here and doesn't really give you much
support here.

Best wishes
