Spandau Ballet’s classic 1983 chart hit GOLD has been chosen by Cadbury’s Wispa Gold to be the soundtrack to their latest advertising campaign which aims to support Team GB ahead of 2012’s Olympics.
The song has been given the remix treatment by world-renowned legendary producer, DJ and remixer Paul Oakenfold and will be available to buy on Monday 28th November.
Since topping the charts around the globe in 1983, GOLD has become a firm fan favourite and has also been used at major sporting events from baseball to cricket, football to rugby and of course at the Olympic Games.
With 2012 seeing London play host to the Olympic Games, Cadbury’s Wispa Gold launched an online campaign to find Spandau Ballet fans to lend their voices to Oakenfold’s new version of the song.
Paul Oakenfold’s GOLD will feature in the new Cadbury’s Wispa Gold advert from 28th November. The video for this will feature Team GB BMX hopeful and Olympic gold-medal prospect Shanaze Reade.
Despite having mingled in similar circles for decades, Paul Oakenfold’s anthemic GOLD remix is the first time he has ever worked with the band and one that he thinks will be a sure fire club floor-filler.
As Paul himself says: “From one of our best loved all time bands, comes the reworking of their classic hit GOLD. I’ve played this out a few times. Give it a play you won't be disappointed!”
The track will be available as a download on itunes and go to www.spandauballet.com to give fans a taster. Fans can show their support for Team GB by going to www.keepourteampumped.com/videos/gold
