The track, which you can hear in a trailer on YouTube below, is set to feature in act two scene five of the play by the Royal Shakespeare Company. The clip shows people at a modern-day garden party, surrounded by Christmas lights and bunting and letting off fire balloons.

'As You Like It' will be staged at the Royal Shakespeare theatre in London from April 12 to September 28, then at the Theatre Royal, Newcastle Upon Tyne from October 29 to November 2.
