British electronic group have recorded a cover version of Randy Crawford's 'One Day I'll Fly Away' for the upcoming John Lewis Christmas advert,

Vaults have recorded the song for this year's John Lewis Christmas advert.

The British electronic group have put their own spin on Randy Crawford's 1980 jazz hit 'One Day I'll Fly Away' for the department store's 2016 festive campaign, according to music industry mail-out Record of the Day who broke the news on Monday morning (07.11.16).

The hotly-anticipated commercial is due to hit TV screens later this month as anticipation for the Yule Tide celebration builds.

Vaults - like many previous artists to work with John Lewis - are not well known to the mainstream music-buying public and are yet to release a full album since being signed to Virgin EMI in 2014 only dropping two EPs.

Last year, their song 'One Last Night' was included on the soundtrack for erotic thriller 'Fifty Shades of Grey'

The trio - Blythe Pepino, Barney Freeman and Ben Vella - will be hoping the campaign gives their career a huge boost like it did for previous artists such as Ellie Goulding, Gabrielle Aplin, Lily Allen, Tom Odell and Aurora who covered Oasis' 'Half The World Away' for last year's advert which was made in conjunction with charity Age UK.

'One Day I'll Fly Away' was a number two hit in the UK when Randy originally released it and it has been covered by a host of people including Nicole Kidman for the film 'Moulin Rouge', Girls Aloud star Kimberley Walsh and Sarah Brightman.

Vaults' debut album was postponed after band member Ben was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2015, but he has now been given the all-clear from the illness.
