2016 John Lewis Christmas advert: Release date and song title confirmed
So it’s the beginning of November which means we are now officially allowed to talk about Christmas non-stop. And let’s face it, Christmas just wouldn’t be Christmas without the iconic John Lewis advert gracing our screens.
The advert becomes more anticipated each year as viewers wonder just how the company will out-do their previous creation. Always as tear-jerking as they are heart-warming, the department store’s advert has become a British Christmas tradition and now everyone is talking about what this year’s has in store.
When is the advert released?
The ad is usually released on the first Friday of November – Last year’s “The Man on the Moon” came out on Friday 6th November on Channel 4, with a teaser during the advert break of ITV’s X Factor the weekend before.
This year, however, we should expect to see the advert on Thursday 10th November, so make sure to keep your eyes peeled then!
What will the song be?
Last year’s cover of “Half The World Away” by Oasis was sung by Norwegian solo artist Aurora and the year before Tom Odell covered the Beatle’s “Real Love”. Previous years have also included Lily Allen singing Keane’s “Somewhere Only We Know” and Ellie Goulding covering the Elton John classic “Your Song”.
So now we must wait with baited breath until Thursday.
Get ready to feel all the Christmassy feels!
