British folk/indie singer-songwriter BEANS ON TOAST (aka Jay McAllister) has disclosed a new music video for his song “MAGIC” [shared below] that’s a sweet taster of his tenth studio album entitled “A Bird In The Hand” out this week.
About the miracle of life and the tense, affectionate, but completely wonderful journey that sets us free in the universe, MAGIC is a courageous and tenderly warming account of the arrival of Beans’ firstborn baby.
A sincere and graceful song that finds the songwriter at his most poignantly susceptible and yet disarmingly relatable: “Magic” communicates with anyone who has an intimate knowledge of leading a life into the world.
“I like my songs to tell stories…” he says “But I also draw from real life emotion and experience. This song, about the birth of my daughter in January this year has all three in abundance.”
“I wanted to get across the excitement and the nervousness of the by-standing father and the admiration of the female body, but most of all, this is a love song.”
On “A Bird In The Hand” Mister Beans teams again with Mumford & Sons’ Ben Lovett, who produced his first album a decade ago. Together they organized the participation of a wonderful team of fabulous musicians for the project, including Mumford & Sons’ live drummer Chris Mass and Dutch folk singer-songwriter Christof van der Ven on guitar.
