John Lewis have revealed their 2015 Christmas ad #ManOnTheMoon with the theme song performed by Norwegian newcomer Aurora.
In the last number of years, the beginning of Christmas has been marked by the unveiling of the John Lewis Christmas advert.
In 2013 Lily Allen was chosen to cover 'Somewhere Only We Know' by Keane and last year Tom Odell covered John Lennon's 'Real Love' for 'Monty the Penguin'.
This year, the retailer has chosen a relatively unknown performer to take the lead on their theme tune, which is a cover of 'Half The World Away' by Oasis.
Aurora Aksnes is a 19 year old singer from Bergen in Norway who released her debut EP 'Running With Wolves' earlier this year.
In the beautiful ad we see a little girl try to communicate with a man on the moon who is all alone.
The aim of the ad is to raise money for Age UK and we think it's going to do a great job.
