Following on from our recent story about the John Lewis ‘Reworked’ competition, Keane have chosen singer-songwriter Matthew Fearon from Leicester as the winner.

The ‘ReWorked’ competition invited aspiring artists to upload a video of their version of Keane’s 2004 hit, ‘Somewhere Only We Know’. The song, as sung by Lily Allen, provides the soundtrack for John Lewis’s 2013 Christmas TV advert which features the animated story of best friends Bear and Hare at Christmas.

Matthew Fearon will now receive an all-expenses paid trip to London where he will record ‘Somewhere Only We Know’ with Lily Allen’s producer Paul Beard. The recording will then be featured in a special 90-second version of the advert which will be shown live on ITV1 on Christmas Day.

Fearon’s winning video was appropriately filmed in a John Lewis store whilst he sat on a footstool entertaining the Christmas shoppers. Here is the video:
