“Magic” is the enchanting new single from BEANS ON TOAST and the latest to arrive from his imminent 10th album: ‘A Bird In The Hand’ (out 1st December 2018).
LISTEN & WATCH HERE:
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.
An earnest and beautiful song that finds the songwriter at his most touchingly vulnerable and relatable, “Magic” will resonate with anyone who has experienced bringing a new child into the world.
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.”
The accompanying “Magic” 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.
“Magic” is the third single to be taken from the Essex musician’s forthcoming 10th Studio album ‘A Bird in The Hand’. Produced by Mumford & Sons’ Ben Lovett at London’s legendary Church Studios, the album is set for release on 1st December.
