The 22-year-old Brit covered "Fast Car" this week during a stop at BBC's Radio 1. Like other artists before him who have stopped by the Live Lounge, Smith performed a song in a genre outside his go-to sound of soul-pop. Folk-pop suits this fella well.
Smith manages to put an elegantly emotional spin on Chapman's already tender track. This is just another reason to keep your ears keen on Smith. His debut LP In The Lonely Hour is a blissful collection of crooners. And, thank goodness too since Adele's album is yet to be announced and British soul was seriously lacking in music until now.
