By on February 15, 2016

International singer-songwriter Leona Lewis is back with a classic love song. Travel agency TUI Nordic asked Leona Lewis to record a new version of the theme song Elton John’s Your Song, one of the most popular love songs in history.

I’m such a huge fan of Elton John and I’ve always loved ‘Your Song’. I was excited to have the opportunity to record my own version. It’s such a beautiful song. Both the melody and the lyrics are perfect. I hope people like it, says Leona Lewis.

Leona has recently released her fifth album, I Am.

That instantly recognizable voice is what has garnered Leona Lewis seven BRIT Award nominations, three Grammy Award nominations, and made the quadruple-platinum “Bleeding Love” the “best-selling song of 2008.” Among going

No. 1 in over 35 countries and 10x Platinum in the U.K., she made U.S. history becoming the “First UK female solo artist to debut at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 in over 20 years” while the critically celebrated singer-songwriter’s worldwide sales surpass 20 million albums to date.

In 2014 she re-teamed with Echo producer and collaborator Toby Gad (John Legend, Beyoncé) to create her fifth and most personal full-length album — I Am. Released September 2015 on Island Records & Def Jam Recordings, I Am is as confessional as it is catchy. Featuring a special collaboration with GRAMMY Award-winning artist Diane Warren and ncluding stunning hit singles such as “Fire Under My Feet,” “Thunder” and “I Am.” I Am highlights powerful, upbeat nthems and incredible emotional ballads, all demonstrating Leona’s striking, almost ethereal vocal range

Your Song has been specially recorded for TUI’s new advertising campaign, which highlights love with the help of real-life couple Charlotte and Valentine. The song is recorded and produced in Los Angeles with Swedish music producer Jonas Quant (Hurts, Foxes etc).

Your Song has been the soundtrack of TUI’s holidays since 2002 and we are proud to have Leona Lewis contribute to the heritage with her moving version. We think it captures the loving emotions of a couple’s holiday perfectly, says Anna Laestadius.

Lewis’ new version of the song is the center of a new campaign designed for the launch of the new Sensimar concept, resorts for adults traveling without children. The film premiered on Saturday evening on prime time TV in Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark.
