The new John Lewis Christmas advertisement has been released, and it includes a cover from Bastille frontman Dan Smith.

In the clip, Smith sings a stripped back, piano-based rendition of REO Speedwagon’s renowned 1985 ballad, “Can’t Fight This Feeling.” The video sees a group of children playing with an animated dragon, who accidentally burns down a Christmas tree before a young girl finds a solution by bringing a flaming dessert.
