An album that includes two EJ covers is being released by John Lewis department stores and its creative agency, Adam & Eve.

Eleven tracks are featured in all, including  Rocket Man, done by The Feeling and Ellie Gouldings take on Your Song.

Available to pre-order on iTunes now for £7.99, the record will also be sold in 34 John Lewis stores. £2 from the sale of each album will go to Save The Children, while £1 will be donated by Universal Music UK and another is to be contributed by the John Lewis Partnership.

Entitled Reworked, the disc consists of songs which have become a hallmark of John Lewis advertising, such as the two already mentioned as well as Amy Macdonald revisiting Dusty Springfield‘s I Only Want to Be With You and Dionne Bromfield re-recording Sades Smooth Operator.

This is great music for a great cause, declares Save the Childrens Corporate Partnerships Director Douglas Rouse.

Everyone who buys this fantastic album is directly helping some of the poorest children in the UK to fulfil their potential.

Craig Inglis, John Lewis marketing director, says: Over the last four years, we have become known for our innovative use of music within our TV advertising. This exciting new album reflects that success whilst also generating funds for a fantastic cause.
