John Lewis Christmas ad 2019: What song is it and who sings the cover?

It's here.

This year's John Lewis Christmas ad is here and it features a dragon who almost ruins Christmas.

But equally important as the advert itself is the song chosen for the John Lewis Christmas ad.

The song is a cover of '80s classic 'Can't fight this feeling' by REO Speedwagon and features on the US band’s record, Wheels Are Turnin'.

The cover is recorded by Dan Smith from the band Bastille and is set to be released next week.

“It’s so great for us to be asked to be part of this year’s John Lewis Christmas ad," Smith said.

"As a band we’ve always had a lot of fun putting a twist on classic songs, and it’s been so good to be a part of this orchestral version of an eighties classic. We’re hoping we get an Edgar for Christmas too.”

Previous John Lewis Christmas ad covers include Elton John's 'Your Song', 'Half the World Away' by Oasis and 'Somewhere Only We Know' by Keane.
