Fast Car, the 1988 Grammy Award winning song of the year by Tracy Chapman is reaching a completely new audience, 28 years after the original was released. Last week, British singer songwriter Jasmine Thompson already unveiled a stunning acoustic version of the song as her new single. But for those who like it a bit more upbeat, London based producer Jonas Blue is your man.
Adding a tropical sounding house beat over the original, and swapping Tracy’s vocals for those of a certain Dakota, Jonas is making sure January is being a little less frosty than normal. The Western-based video, directed Adam Newton-Berra was released yesterday on Youtube.
