Sticking firmly to his own tradition of releasing a new album on the same date each year, 30th November, A Bird in the Hand is Beans on Toast’s tenth release in as many years.
This time around Jay McAllister, aka Beans on Toast, went to Ben Lovett of Mumford & Sons (who produced his first album ten years ago) and they hatched a plan. While Mumford’s were making their forthcoming album in Paul Epworth’s The Church Studios in London during any down time, Ben and Jay worked on the new BOT album.
A voice of truth and honesty, and a modern-day troubadour, Beans is a musical workaholic, always writing, always performing, always recording, despite the birth of his first child earlier this year. A Bird in the Hand is yet another celebration of love, life, family and the world in which we live.
‘Another Year’ is the first taste of the new album, and Beans will be visiting Resident, on Kensington Gardens, on 5th December (all ages welcome) for an in-store performance and signing session.
You can pre-order the album on any format to receive two free guest-list spaces. He’ll also be on tour in the UK next year, landing again in Brighton, this time at Patterns, on 27th February 2019.
