John Lewis advert: What is the 2021 song? John Lewis has just released its Christmas 2021 advert.
The advert was released much earlier than expected. John Lewis released it on Thursday, November 4.
The advert has been named ‘Unexpected Guest’. The advert tells the story of a young alien during their first Christmas.
Lola Young is a 20-year-old singer and songwriter from London. She provides the soundtrack to this year’s advert. The song is a cover of Together In Electric Dreams which was first released in 1984.
The delightful ad is only two minutes long. It was created by the adam&eveDDB agency along with John Lewis. The department store has refused to release details on this year’s budget.
At the moment Lola is on tour in the UK. Lola previously spoke of her love for music. She said: “It’s been a part of my life since I had my first memory,”
“And I’ve been singing since I could talk. Not that I was a good singer then. I really had to learn, practice, get lessons and teach myself. Hard work was involved when it came to me learning how to sing. People might say, ‘It sounds like you were born with that voice.’ It was not the case at all.”
According to Paradigm Talent Agency Lola could be the next big thing. The agency commented: “Fiercely independent and possessing a true artistic vision, 20-year-old Lola Young has all the potential, spirit and individuality to become the UK’s next biggest talent.”
