Open University Advert Music 2015: Song and singer info for the ‘Life-Changing Learning, What Your Capable Of’ TV commercial.
Song Title: ‘Can’t Pretend’.
Artist/Singer: Tom Odell.
The soundtrack to the 2015 Open University ad is provided by British singer-songwriter Tom Odell.
Taken from his album ‘Long Way Down’ the tune is called ‘Can’t Pretend’ and was released in March of 2013.
Though the single only reached number 67 in the UK, Long Way Down achieved the top spot in the official album charts.
It seems Tom Odell is quickly becoming an old-hand when it comes to having his music featured in TV adverts. In addition to this OU video and last years ‘Real Love’ John Lewis Christmas commercial, the 24-year-old’s song ‘Grow Old with Me’ is currently being used in an American ad for healthcare company Kaiser Permanente.
The above advert for The Open University began airing on our TV screens back in March of this year and has recently made a comeback.
According to the video, the most important thing you’ll learn at the OU is what you’re capable of – Try putting that on your CV.
