Artist/Singer: Katie Melua.
Available To Download From: iTunes and Amazon.
The track featured in this new Premier Inn ad is called ‘Wonderful Life’ and it’s performed by the Blues and Jazz singer, Katie Melua. All record label and artist royalties from the first 12 months of UK and Eire sales are being donated to the Great Ormond Street Hospital & The Children’s Hospital Charity.
Only just released on the 28th of August, 2015, the song is a cover of a 1987 single of the same name, by British pop-rock singer Black. The original version reached number 3 in the official UK singles charts.
The Georgian-British singer-songwriter Katie Melua is probably best known for such tunes as ‘Nine Million Bicycles’ and her debut 2003 single ‘The Closest Thing to Crazy’.
The 30-year-old musicians biggest hit to-date was her 2007 number 1: a duet cover of the Louis Armstrong classic ‘What a Wonderful World’ with the late, great American singer Eva Cassidy.
This latest ‘Wake Up Wonderful’ commercial for hotel chain Premier Inn (which you can watch in full above), finishes with comedian and actor Lenny Henry pointing out that “Morning’s always seem to be just that bit more wonderful after a good nights sleep.”
Set to the relaxing sounds of Katie Melua, the video shows sunrise scenes filmed at various locations around the British Isles.
Free from any Lenny Henry appearances or voice-overs, here’s a look at the full length official video for Katie’s version of Wonderful Life:
