The Holidays Are Coming Early

Christmas came early for East City Films in September as we won the rather wonderful opportunity to work with Coca-Cola and The Kingdom Choir (of Harry & Megan’s wedding fame) to create a music video for a new extended version of the much loved ‘Holidays Are Coming’. The Kingdom Choir, along with German artist Namika and French artist Camelia, collaborated with Coca-Cola to great affect, re-recording the festive anthem which has been released as a single and is also the soundtrack to the iconic Christmas truck ad.

We feel honoured to be part of this iconic song remake. With this re-record we want to convey the message of joy, sharing and caring for eachother - that’s what the holidays are for. We loved the fact that Coca-Cola had new lyrics written with us in mind and we are very excited to hear our version of ‘Holidays Are Coming’ alongside this iconic TV ad.
— Karen Gibson - The Kingdom Choir

The Music Video

Olivia Emes directed the music video and Behind The Scenes film, which was conceived as a coming together of artists to record the song at Metropolis, the world famous recording studio in Chiswick, London.

The overall idea of the video is this idea of a group coming together uniting through music and creativity and joy and passion. It’s been more than just making a music video. There was a real sense that something magical happened over the past few days.
