John Lewis Christmas Advert 2020: Celeste releases an original song to spread A Little Love

The BRITs Rising Star winner is the first artist to pen a track especially for the company's annual Christmas advert.

Celeste has written an original song for this year's John Lewis Christmas advert titled A Little Love.

This year's advert features characters passing on kind gestures to help friends, family and strangers in small and big ways: from fixing a tyre, to helping dislodge a football from a tree branch, to reaching out to a lonely neighbour spending the holidays alone.

Bucking the trend of having artists cover classic tracks for their anticipated annual ad, this year BRITs Rising Star winner Celeste was enlisted to pen a track especially for the mini film - launched on National Kindness Day - relaying the message of giving a little love and kindness to others at the end of a difficult year.
