AF Safety Video/ads: No more Glass Candy - Warm in the Winter ?

Not sure how news is this and if this is OT, but I was a little sad about it.

While flying the 787 from CDG to LHR I noticed that during the safety videos there was a different background music than the variation of "Warm in the Winter" from Glass Candy ("France in the air..").
The new background music is definitely less interesting, too quiet and less "corporate identity" than WITW. While I found it a little annoying when it first came out, I become addicted to that catchy music.
Today I've even seen a tv ad (on the italian tv) with the new music and the same video that used to have WITW. It really feels like an afterthought.

I'm curious if there is any motivation of this switch rather than just a change for the sake of change.
