A Little Love

Album: Not Your Muse (2020)
Charted: 59

Songfacts®:

  • Celeste wrote and recorded this soul-jazz song for the 2020 John Lewis Christmas advertising campaign. It finds her singing of how the best festive gift you can give is sharing love. If we all show some kindness in the holiday season, "all at once you see a million faces bloom."
  • The UK department store John Lewis Christmas advert is an annual tradition, which in the past has featured covers of classic tracks by the likes of Taken By Trees, Ellie Goulding, Slow Moving Millie, Gabrielle Aplin, Lily Allen, Tom Odell, Aurora, Vaults, Elbow and Dan Smith. For the 2020 commercial, Celeste broke with the tradition by recording a brand new song.
  • Inspired by the kindness shown by the British public during the pandemic, the largely animated advert encourages viewers to give a little love to others.
