Apple has tapped THE BLUE VAN as the featured artist in their new ad for the iPad which was first broadcast during the 2010 Academy Awards on Sunday, March 7, 2010. The song “There Goes My Love” is taken from the band’s third and latest release MAN UP that was self-released in the US in 2009. “”Apple are notorious for being really picky with music for their commercials,” says Soren Christensen, keyboards/guitars/vocals. “They really put the music way up front in their ads. We are proud that they picked us!”
The Blue Van has built a nice solid buzz with placing songs in ads and television shows over the last year, including Samsung T-Mobile‘s commercial as well as shows like 90210, CSI, Scrubs, and Royal Pains.
The band is in the midst of recording their fourth full-length and being courted by several labels in America for the release.
“Its been hard convincing our parents about how big of a deal this is,” continues Christenson. “The only ‘Apple’ they know comes in a pie, but seeing us on TV all the time now, I think they get the picture.”
