Arctic Monkeys among Favourites for the The John Lewis Christmas Advert Music


The John Lewis Christmas advert has become an essential part of British  Christmas culture, but what will the advert covering song be this year? And who will sing it? With less than 24 hours to go until the advert airs on the 4th November, Vouchercloud can reveal the favourite for the song used is a classic by The Arctic Monkeys.

The nation might not be able to predict the characters or storyline but the John Lewis Christmas advert appears to have struck a winning formula when it comes to the cover music. Vouchercloud have analysed the music from the past 7 years (nearly 20,00 songs!) and can reveal that based on previous years, this year’s Christmas advert song will likely be a:

A slowed down…

Piano driven…

Acoustic cover…  

Of a top 10 single….

By a British male rock band

That’s had at least 4 number 1 albums in the UK.

The song will be covered by a female…

Who is British or Scandinavian…

Indie solo singer…

Who’s released their debut album or EP in the last three years…


Arctic Monkeys is a favourite for the advert’s music because they have had 4 number one albums in the UK and they are one of the nations favourite rock bands. The songs that could be covered include:

  • I Bet That You Look Good On The Dancefloor

  • When The Sun Goes Down

  • Leave Before The Lights Come On

  • Brainstorm

You can listen to all of the predictions including the Arctic Monkey’s anthems here.

Greg Le Tocq, Managing Director of Vouchercloud comments:

“The annual release of the John Lewis Christmas advert isn’t a public holiday just yet, but it’s certainly becoming an integral part of Great British Christmas culture. The high-street retailer has stuck to their winning formula for the last seven years in a bid to win the Christmas advert arms race.”

The advert is due to air tomorrow and we can’t wait to see if it’s an Arctic Monkey’s song!
