Reading the question on everyone’s lips this week, BEANS ON TOAST’s new single simply asks:
“What are we going to do Glastonbury Weekend?”
With the Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts postponed this year because of you-know-what, Beans’ latest single arrives on what would have been its 50th Anniversary celebration.
What will you miss the most?
The Stone Circle on the Summer Solstice? Taylor Swift and Paul McCartney on the Pyramid? The sun shining over Pennard Hill?
Saluting the greatest festival on Earth, ‘Glastonbury Weekend’ touches on all of these and so much more. Singing…
“all of the music and the madness and the magic and the millions of memories that can’t be replicated… I need something to restore my faith in humanity: I need Glastonbury!”
Written, recorded and released from lockdown, ‘Glastonbury Weekend’ is out on all platforms on 26th June, but you can download the single from Beans’ website today, here. His fourth single since the pandemic began, it follows ‘Strange Days‘, ‘Human Contact‘ and recent release ‘Chessington World of Adventures‘; each offering Beans’ typically incisive social and political commentary during a time like no-other.If you’re missing your festival fix of live music, Beans on Toast will be co-hosting ‘Grand Aid‘ tomorrow night (25 June) alongside Glastonbury familiar: Frank Turner. This special one-off gig is an essential fundraiser for The Clapham Grand, who, like many venues, are fighting for survival in these tough and uncertain times. Streaming live from the venue itself, Beans and Frank will present an evening of songs and conversation, with some wonderfully talented friendly faces in support, and a very special guest slot from Billy Bragg via video link.
