April 12, 2024 - Today, prolific singer-songwriter (and frontman of GRAMMY-Award winning rock band Switchfoot) Jon Foreman has released “I Propose A Toast”, a gorgeous life-affirming anthem that gives fans another preview of his forthcoming LP In Bloom (out May 31st). 

Co-produced with James McAlister (Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Sufjan Stevens), “I Propose A Toast” is the opening track on In Bloom and sees Foreman celebrating the beauty of life and the priceless connections made along the way. With his characteristic lyrical touch and a light acoustic backing, Foreman encourages listeners to unite around their differences and build the bridges leading to a brighter tomorrow. It’s a stirring message in an era tarnished by hate and division, but Foreman’s worldview continues to spread a gospel of love and understanding: “here’s to love and here’s to life / here’s to fighting side-by-side / here’s to us together / you and I”.

Also released today, the stunning lyric video for “I Propose A Toast” is a celebration of life and human connection, all shot on nostalgia-inducing Super 8 film. The footage invokes memories of Summers long past and reflects Foreman’s SoCal origins and passion for surfing.

Speaking about the track, Foreman noted: “I Propose A Toast” is a song to be sung at the end of a beautiful night with friends. It’s a refrain born of the paradox of humanity: recognizing both the pain and the beauty. The darkness, and the light. I wanted a song that would embrace the truth of where we are, and the roads that brought us here.

So I propose a toast: Here’s to a love that transcends the distance between us. And here’s to fighting… side by side.”

Foreman is currently on the road on the “Tear The Roof Off Tour” in support of Brandon Lake, which sees the two singer-songwriters playing arenas and large clubs throughout the United States, with shows already sold out in Brooklyn (NY), Memphis (TN), Arlington (TX), Orlando (FL) and more.

ABOUT JON FOREMAN: 

GRAMMY-Award Winning singer-songwriter Jon Foreman's musical journey began in a California garage filled with surfboards. These were the humble beginnings of multi-platinum selling, Grammy Award winning alt-rock band SWITCHFOOT. As the stages and crowds grew larger, Foreman felt the need for personal connection more than ever. So after the lights, and smoke, and crowd-surfing died down, Jon began singing his acoustic songs in the parking lot behind the venue. It was these "aftershows" that inspired his first four solo EPs in 2007: Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer: Twenty-four understated songs that showcased a new side of his songwriting proficiency. These were followed up by another series of EPs in the spring of 2015 titled, "The Wonderlands" - featuring twenty-four songs, a song for every hour of the day. 2015 welcomed the release of "The Wonderlands" twenty-five more songs that underscored Foreman’s unique way of seeing the world. The project was an attempt to craft a song for every hour of the day, accompanied by an unprecedented attempt to play 25 shows in 24 hours, a daunting feat that would become the feature documentary, "25 IN 24." As a true songwriter’s songwriter, Foreman’s songs have been sung by a truly wide array of artists including: Taylor Swift, Twenty One Pilots’ Tyler Joseph, the Jonas Brothers, and Jon Bellion. From Mandy Moore to Meatloaf, his work is appreciated by quite a disparate cross section of the populace. Jon boasts over 130M global streams for his solo records, over 239K Spotify listeners, and has had massive syncs across film and TV including Grey’s Anatomy, ESPN College Football, One Tree Hill and more.
