"Changes" is a song by French electronic duo Faul & Wad Ad. It was released in November 2013 as a single and reached number-one in Belgium and Germany, while it also reached the top 10 in many other European countries, including the top 3 in the United Kingdom. The song samples the refrain of Australian electronic duo Pnau's song "Baby", which itself was a top 40 hit in Australia.[2] It was used in an advert for the Mercedes C-Class, while the refrain was also used in the video game Gran Turismo 5.

Background[edit]

In 2008, Pnau released the track "Baby", sung by a children's choir on their self-titled album. Pnau is a side project of Nick Littlemore of Australian duo Empire of the Sun and of Peter Mayes. The track "Baby" was written by Nick and Sam Littlemore and Peter Mayes and was produced by Sam Littlemore. The song also appeared in the Bonus collection edition of FIFA 14, released in March 2014. It was exclusive to the Xbox One only, and was pulled from sales after just one week due to low performance figures.
