Jamie's festive tune is currently being played on a North American television commercial.

Jamie Cullum has unveiled a Christmas single called 'Show Me The Magic' - fusing his distinctive jazz and big band sound with the spirit of festive music. The track is currently being played out on a big TV advertising campaign for Multinational designer outlet store McArthurGlen.

Jamie says he's working hard on his next LP set for a 2017 release, but couldn't resist the chance to work on something different: “I loved the challenge of writing a Christmas song. Sometimes having specific guidelines, and being limited in what you can do, gets you writing,” he said. “The song took shape in my head for about two weeks, before I sat down one morning and wrote it in two or three hours. It just tumbled out.” And about recording in Abbey Road Jamie said “It is a big project for a big brand, so it could only be Abbey Road. With the jazz orchestra and the sleigh bells, and the history of the studio itself, there was real magic in that room.”
