Contemporary Artists Cover An Advertising Classic

Cotton Inc. is reintroducing a song from 1989, “The Fabric of Our Lives,” that served through the 1990s as a jingle in commercials for clothing and home furnishings made from cotton.

The jingle comes back this week in a campaign from DDB/New York. To make sure the cotton jingle “is relevant to a new audience,” said Cassandra Anderson, creative director at DDB, it is being performed by contemporary musicians like Zooey Deschanel, Miranda Lambert and Jazmine Sullivan.
