Jonas Blue On "Fast Car" & "Perfect Strangers"
We speak to Jonas Blue about his hit cover and new single "Perfect Strangers."

Jonas Blue seemingly came out of nowhere to land a massive international hit with a tropical house cover of Tracy Chapman’s “Fast Car.” The Brit’s debut single went Top 10 in over a dozen countries and topped the dance chart stateside. Impressively, the 26-year-old singer has backed it up with another smash called “Perfect Strangers” — an original featuring Manchester singer/songwriter JP Cooper. The song is currently perched at #1 on UK iTunes.

The duo recently came together to perform an acoustic version of the summery single, which we’re excited to premiere below. The stripped-down rendition shows off the producer’s musicianship, as well as JP’s brilliant live vocals.

“I come from a songwriter background, so essentially with my music, I’m trying to make songs that will last a lifetime,” Jonas says of the collaboration. “I want to make songs that you can play on a guitar and they’re going to sound just as good as the dance version.”
