Sam Smith is set to embark on a North American tour next week, but before crossing the Atlantic, the soul-pop crooner stopped by the BBC's Live Lounge to deliver a cover of Tracy Chapman's "Fast Car."

As with everything he does, Smith totally breaks out the feels on this one. The track gets a total revamp, with Smith's vocals adding a sense of gloomy urgency to the '90s classic.

Smith's In the Lonely Hour is out now on Columbia, but you can watch his take on "Fast Car" below for something a little different.
