Getting into shape for his upcoming UK tour, Beans on Toast releases a playful new single, 'The Unlikely Gymnast', taken from his new album Cushty out 1 December 2017. Preorder now.
Arriving on the eve of his biggest UK shows to date, the new track comes with an athletic new video and a short story to set the scene, as written by Beans himself.
As a 36-year old, self proclaimed ‘drunk-folk’ singer, vowing to “make gymnastics sexy again” is a bold statement. Making that same vow to a family of professional gymnasts opens up a can of worms.
'The Unlikely Gymnast' is a humorous be-careful-what-you-wish-for tale to rival the best of them: the true story of how one drunken promise can set you on course for unexpected circumstances and soon have you eating your own words.
Starring some of the real gymnasts he encountered on that fateful day he spilled the beans, and filmed at the Scarborough Gymnastics Academy in which they perfect their art, Beans on Toast’s latest video is an attempt to come good on his promise to bring sexy back to the sport. You decide the results.
