Ellie Goulding's likable 2009 debut Lights will be re released in the UK as Bright Lights. The first single is a cover of Elton John's classic from 1970, "Your Song." John Lewis features the rendition on a new Christmas TV ad, prompting bloggers and press to rank it the number one Christmas song of the year.
The single is more subtle and tranquil than the poignant original, consisting only of fragrant piano chords, faint violin strings and Goulding's sweet vocals. The video shows the young singer frolicking in autumn surroundings, playing piano and enjoying "how wonderful life is now that you're in the world." Bright Lights comes out Nov 29, buy "Your Song" at iTunes. You can previous the entire thing below:
