Fashion house Burberry gets set to release a single. Will it be a hit?
Last month we finally revealed Burberry’s new advertising campaign for the ‘Burberry Body’ fragrance launch, featuring none other than the gorgeous Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Burberry fans across the globe loved the campaign and thought Huntington-Whiteley was the perfect person to front the campaign; and she did so in nothing but a famous Burberry trench coat.
Now the prestigious fashion house has revealed that they are set to release a single to accompany the new campaign. At first, we wondered if we had heard the news right? Is Burberry really releasing a single?
Well, the simple answer is yes, however, they are doing so via British Indie band ‘The Feeling’, who they have worked with to create the soundtrack. The track will be an acoustic version of the band’s song ‘RosÃ©’ and will be released on Monday October 10th, along with an exclusive music video, all available to download via iTunes.
Burberry’s creative director, Christopher Bailey, expressed his excitement at the new venture, saying: “Music is a hugely important facet of the Burberry world and with the launch of Burberry Body we wanted to create an iconic soundtrack that reflects the sensuality and attitude of the fragrance. We worked with The Feeling, a band that I have long admired, on a unique recording of RosÃ© at Abbey Road. This exclusive string version captures the mood and spirit of the Burberry Body campaign perfectly.”
We can’t wait to hear the finished track, and who knows, Burberry could have a number 1 hit on their hands.
