New Release & Video: Beans On Toast – Magic

Taking from his brand new record A Bird In The Hand, Beans On Toast has unveiled another great new single. All about the miracle of life and the suspenseful, emotional, but totally wonderful journey that delivers it, Magic puts to song the heart melting account of the arrival of Beans’ firstborn baby

Speaking about the tender topic of this track, Beans says: “I like my songs to tell stories, but also to 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. A song about the unconditional love between a parent and child. I’ve never known anything quite like it”

Take a look and a listen below…

The accompanying video was directed by longtime friend and collaborator (and father of two) Jem Mitchell, a talented videographer who very much ticked all boxes for the job. Looking to lovingly emulate the golden memories we all share of capturing those classic family portraits together, Beans invited his close friends and relations with young children down to a studio where they could hear the new song and enjoy their time together. The result is a video that is full to the brim with love, life, tears and happiness and fits this wonderful new single like a glove
