This singer auditioned to record a song for this year's John Lewis Christmas ad

And it's only March!

It seems very early to be talking about Christmas ads but nonetheless, here we are.

Every year we eagerly await the release of one ad in particular – the John Lewis Christmas advert.

Yes, like the Coca-Cola lorry, it’s a milestone moment when you see the add on telly for the first time.

Well, it seems like work on 2018’s ad is already underway and the first tease we’ve heardabout is to do with the music.

Over the years, artists such as Ellie Goulding, Lily Allen and Tom Odell have provided the music for the famous ad and this year could be just as special if this singer gets his way.

George Ezra has reportedly auditioned to record the song for this year’s festive ad.

The Budapest singer has auditioned for producer Giles Martin and shared the news that he is in the mix for the soundtrack on his podcast.

“We met about a month ago to audition for the John Lewis song.”

However, we’re going to have to wait a while yet before finding out if George’s track is chosen as the single won’t be released until the start of November.
