So, every time the new Macbook commercial comes on, my ears perk up at the song in it.
Being the researcher that I am, (have I done a post about the crazy shit I research? I know some really weird stuff...from the architecture of ancient cathedrals to trepanation) any time I hear of something interesting I hop online and learn all about it.
The chick who sings that song is named Yael Naim (I have no idea how to say it) and the song is called New Soul. She speaks four languages and is Israeli and maybe something else, I forget already. BUT, she does have a phenomenal voice and Apple has probably just launched the American portion of her career with that commercial because many people have taken notice.
So here is the song:
and here is Yael Naim covering "She who will not be named on this blog because we are not contributing to the madness that is her life"'s song Toxic:
I think she's got a gorgeous voice and that first song makes me want to sing along, so just thought I'd share and save you from wondering every time the commercial came on like I was.
Edited to add: She's a French born Israeli. I knew you all couldn't stand not knowing.
