O2 - You're Our Headline Act


Advert: O2 - You're Our Headline Act

Music: Michael Kiwanuka - Light



The music from this ad for O2 is by UK artists Michael Kiwanuka. Michael dreamed of becoming a jazz guitarist but dropped out of the Royal Academy of Music after a discouraging end-of-year report. He settled into a low-key career as a session guitarist, performing his own songs in pubs as a sideline. However he soon signed to Polydor and his rootsy debut album, Home Again, went gold. But then self-doubt returned with a vengeance and he scrapped an entire second album, Night Songs. and was thinking of giving up. Eventually, his album Love & Hate went to No 1 and is widely considered one of the decade’s classic albums. He went on to record Kiwanuka which was pivotal in conquering his anxiety and self doubt. 'Light', which features on this O2 advert is from this most recent album.
