It’s around now the Christmas cynics come out in force and say things like, "by the lords of Netflix: decorations already!?" and "Odin’s Breath! I hate presents, nice food and snow." But shut up cynics: Christmas is a laugh, and so is the new John Lewis ‘The Bear and The Hare’ Christmas advert.

Lily Allen Is John Lewis' Christmas Fairy, Covering Keane For A New Advert.

Last year’s effort saw a saw an adorable snowman and wife have the perfect Christmas, as Mr. Snowman made the impossible trek to a John Lewis store to buy her a scarf. It was silly – like this year’s – but it was still really fun. ‘The Bear and The Hare’ is similarly silly, but equally fun.

British retailers John Lewis are fast becoming renowned for their creative Christmas adverts with beautiful songs. Singer Lily Allen will cover Keane's 'Somewhere Only We Know' for this year's advert as the pop star makes her return to music, according to Music Week.

2010 saw Ellie Goulding covering Elton John's classic 'Your Song' whilst Gabrielle Aplin's Frankie Goes To Hollywood cover of 'Power of Love' was last year's choice. Amelia Warner recorded a rendition of The Smiths' 'Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want' for the company's 2011 Xmas ad. All three songs climbed the UK singles chart as a result of featuring in the department store's advert and it looks like this year will be no different in terms of accelerated sales.

David Cameron Gives Romantic Mixtape To G8 Leaders, Who's On It?

Prime Minister David Cameron has promoted young British musicians by giving all the G8 leaders a 10-track USB stick containing songs from Alt-J, Conor Maynard, Laura Mvula and Gabrielle Aplin with a very prominent theme of love.

Perhaps the Tory party leader is attempting to up his "cool" factor or seem down with the kids - the voters of tomorrow - having also recently been seen at Oxfordshire's Cornbury Festival and regularly sharing his music taste with reporters. The ten songs weren't selected by the busy PM however, rather the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) assembled the tracklist presented to each of the G8 leaders on a USB stick.

Thom Yorke Issues Warning To David Cameron On Using Radiohead

Thom Yorke Keane David Cameron

Thom Yorke has said that he would "sue the living shit" out of David Cameron if he used any Radiohead songs for the Conservative election campaign. "I can't say I love the idea of a banker liking our music, or David Cameron," he added in an interview with Drowned in Sound.

"But I also equally think, who cares? As long as he doesn't use it for his election campaigns, I don't care. I'd sue the living shit out of him if he did. I can't believe he'd like [Radiohead album] King of Limbs much," he added. The 44-year-old frontman did however say that he disagreed with musicians like Keane, Morrissey and Paul Weller for openly castigating politicians for enjoying their music. 

Amok by Atoms for Peace, released on 25 February, is the first album Yorke has made with a full band other than Radiohead. The musician, however, sounds mildly dissatisfied with Atom, calling it "not dancey enough" adding:  "It's not like The Eraser [his 2006 solo album]. But it's not a band album either. It doesn't sound like a band playing ... We wanted to go into the song realm, because it felt good to do that. If it were up to me, every track would be 10 minutes long."

Noel Gallagher Doubts That Live 8 Will Be Successful

Noel Gallagher Oasis Keane

Noel Gallagher has revealed that the Live 8 concert is unlikely to achieve what it set out to do - that being, convince politicians from some of the richest countries in the world to band together and wipe out the debts that poorer nations owe them. The Oasis guitarist has stated his belief that rock stars and musicians alone do not hold that sort of political sway, and they honestly do not have the power to influence the decision-makers within the G8.

Believing that all the hard work will be in vain, Gallagher explained that: "Correct me if I'm wrong, but are they hoping that one of these guys from the G8 is on a quick 15 minute break at Gleneagles (in Scotland) and sees Annie Lennox singing 'Sweet Dreams' and thinks, 'F**k me, she might have a point there, you know?'
