AURORA covers Oasis in John Lewis Christmas advert

By Erlend Buflaten Posted: 06. Nov, 2015

AURORA will be the voice of Christmas in the UK this year.

UK department store chain John Lewis released its Christmas advert today and it is song by our own AURORA. The singer covers Oasis’  ‘Half The World Away’ and is set for massive exposure in the coming weeks. John Lewis’ holiday campaigns are one of the biggest you can have in the UK, being defined as a “certain hit for the performer”. Up until this year, the songs have been performed by well known British artists, but after months of choosing – AURORA will be the voice of Christmas 2015.

The commercials hold a high ranking in the UK, as exemplified by Gigwise: – The commercials are becoming as much a part of Christmas as sprouts, booze and the Queen’s speech.
