Keeping with the tradition of releasing an album every year on his Birthday, Beans on Toast’s 10th Studio offering A Bird In The Hand will be available December 1st. Fittingly, for this 10th anniversary, Jay McAllister reunited with Ben Lovett of Mumford & Sons,. Who produced his debut 50-track double album Standing On A Chair a decade ago. Coinciding with the album’s announcement, McAllister has released first single Another Year, an ode to both his father and daughter. Accompanied by a video that features the aforementioned three generations of the McAllister family. It beautifully captures the physical similarities and disparities of our kin in both appearance and traits. Together with how our march through time marks its inevitable progress.

A Bird in The Hand is a much more personal album than most previous Beans on Toast output. As well as the touching Another Year, Magic is written about the birth of his daughter and Here at Homerton Hospital is dedicated to the staff of the East London institution where she was born. However, this does not mark a move to more insular songwriting. There are still the funny and thought provoking tracks that are the Beans on Toast Trademark. With Bamboo Toothbrush addressing the plastic products polluting the earth. Also, Alexa examines the future of voice-activated Internet devices and the global domination of tech behemoths.

On the process, McAllister said:

“I think everyone already knows where I stand on Trump and Brexit, and if not, they can listen to my last two albums. This album is more personal I guess, focusing on family and the world on my doorstep. That’s where my heads been this last year.”

A Bird in The Hand is released December 1st on CD / LP / Ltd Edition LP / DL via Beans on Toast Music and can be Pre-Ordered here
