John Lewis Christmas advert band Vaults would love to meet their label pal Sir Paul McCartney especially bassist Ben Vella, who jokingly offered to play bass for him
Vaults would love to work on music with Sir Paul McCartney.
The British electronic group - who are signed to Virgin EMI Records - have put their own spin on Randy Crawford's 1980 jazz hit 'One Day I'll Fly Away' for department store John Lewis' 2016 festive advert, and recorded the song at London's iconic Abbey Road Studios, which is synonymous with The Beatles, who recorded most of their albums there.
Barney Freeman - who is joined by Blythe Pepino and Ben Vella in the group - has jokingly offered to play bass for the world famous songwriter and bassist, 74.
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, he said: "I'm probably the biggest Beatles fan in the group. I'd love to meet Macca. I'd work with him, if he fancies a bit of bass. No, we'd love to work with him."
Talking about the studio, he said: "It's an incredible place you can just feel the history. It was a real amazing day.
"The Beatles room is basically untouched so all of the original pianos were in there and you can recognise it from the 'Let It Be' video. You really do get the spirit of the band there."
Meanwhile, the trio have said they'd love to get Randy's approval of their cover.
Singer Blythe Pepino said: "I don't know if she has heard it, I haven't looked that up. But it would be great to get her blessing if she likes it."
Vaults' debut LP 'Caught In Still Life' is out now and the band will be heading out on a headline tour in February.
