The new Ellie Goulding single (a cover of Elton John’s ‘Your Song’) is doing surprisingly rather well… it is currently number 1 on the iTunes chart and is expected to reach the Top 5 on the official singles chart to be announced on Sunday!
The reason for it’s success? Ellie’s rendition is being used in the Christmas TV ad campaign for John Lewis. Also, possibly maybe, it’s because Ellie’s version is a rather fragile and sweet little number, it’s both beautiful and understated.
‘Your Song’ is the lead single from her soon to be re-released debut album, this time repackaged and renamed ‘Bright Lights’, which adds an additional six tracks to the original release. The reissue will be available from 29th November.
