Entertaining folk singer, barefoot troubadour and cult legend Beans on Toast is set to release his sixth studio album on his 34th birthday and will back it up with a UK tour that includes a stop off in Leeds.
Newly engaged to muse Lizzy Bee and with his biggest year to date behind him, Beans on Toast is turning his irreverent mind to the more valuable things in life with new album The Grand Scheme of Things.
Released on Xtra Mile Recordings, as is tradition on December 1, the album turns to the more wholesome topics of home cooking, an upcoming honeymoon and a whole lot of loving; a marked change in the man who once was a poster boy for recreational drugs.
What hasn’t changed though is Beans on Toast’s unrivalled ability to tell a tale, his no holds barred social commentary and his ability to tackle difficult subjects from an everyday point of view. Here, his thoughts from the last year are honestly regaled through eleven life-affirming and frequently humorous tracks.
The release is flanked by a 15-date headline tour (with support from Will Varley), including Beans’ largest London show to date, at the Electric Ballroom, and a gig at the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds on Wednesday.
In the past 12 months Beans has toured the world, opened arenas for his good friend Frank Turner and played a jam packed summer of festivals.
