Up-and-coming, London based producer, Jonas Blue has released a dramatic reimaging of Tracy Chapman’s classic song ‘Fast Car’.
Teaming up with incredible young vocal talent, Dakota, Blue has swapped the original’s lilting guitar for an upbeat tropical house sound – and now he’s ready to unveil the official video.
Set in the dusty, sand planes of the US midwest, the visual focuses on the classic story of boy meets girl, as an epic race across the dunes develops. After crashing her motorbike, one of the men, all of whom were trying to keep up on horseback, takes it upon himself to go to her aid. The two then spend the night under the stars in the desert, tapping into bohemian themes of freedom and love, before one last twist ensures adds to the hazy, dream-like nature of the video itself.
With the record itself already a certified global smash – it’s claimed the #1 spot on iTunes and certified Gold in both Australia Sweden, #1 iTunes Sweden, reached #3 on the UK’s viral Spotify chart, #2 on the US viral chart, #4 on the global chart and amassed almost 10 million plays on Spotify too – the official video is sure to add to the global buzz surrounding the single.
