Sony’s new masterpiece of an advert for their BRAVIA 4K HDR TV’s features a beautiful new cover of Cyndi Lauper’s 1986 song ‘True Colours’. Having been recorded by a number of other artists since the original, including Phil Collins, the version you hear playing in this Sony commercial is being performed by the British singer-songwriter and musician Tom Odell. We’re pleased to say this emotional cover of an already great song is due to be released for download as a full length single on the 30th of September, 2016.
Filmed at the Constanta Casino in Constanta, Romania, this visually stunning Sony TV ad, of which you can watch the extended version above, shows many large white balloons filling up the derelict old building. As the pressure builds, the balloons begin bursting and spreading huge amounts of colourful glitter. Finishing with the tagline ‘More brilliance. More beauty.’, this version of the video was uploaded to the official Sony Europe YouTube channel on the 22nd of September, 2016.
No strangers to creating amazing looking commercials with equally impressive soundtracks, you may remember Sony last year released the ‘Fireworks’ campaign for their range of 4K Ultra HD TV’s, that time featuring the song ‘Firestone’ by Kygo and Conrad Sewell. Continuing the links to previous TV ad songs, another cover version of True Colours was used in the recent Center Parcs ‘Bears’ advert, that time performed by singer Ben Madeley.
Meanwhile, Tom Odell performed a cover of John Lennon’s ‘Real Love’ for the 2014 John Lewis Christmas ad, had his own track ‘Can’t Pretend’ used on the Open University ‘Life-Changing Learning – What Your Capable Of’ advert, plus had another of his songs ‘Grow Old with Me’ included on an American commercial for Kaiser Permanente.
