Breakout U.K. artist Jonas Blue will kick off his first-ever North American tour on March 11 at New York City’s Webster Hall. The run will include a series of four performances in Florida and a March 18 show at Avalon in Los Angeles. Tickets are on sale now. See below for itinerary.
Blue’s dramatic reimaging of Tracy Chatman’s classic song “Fast Car” (featuring Dakota) is the hottest new song of 2016 on Spotify, with more than 75 million streams worldwide and over one million streams per week in the U.S. alone. “Fast Car” went to #1 on Spotify’s U.S. Viral chart and is currently in the Top 15 of the Spotify Global Top 50 chart.
On iTunes, “Fast Car” hit #1 in the U.K. and Australia and has charted in the Top 10 in a total of 30 countries. It also entered the Top 10 of iTunes’ U.S. dance chart. On Shazam, “Fast Car” was the #1 trending song in the U.K. and ranked #7 worldwide.
The up-and-coming producer takes his musical cues from pop and classic dance music, as well as from the Tropical House sounds of producers such as Felix Jaehn, Lost Frequencies and Kygo. Blue’s latest single came about when he had the idea to recreate one of his mother’s favorite songs, which he remembered hearing on repeat as a child. Crafting the music came naturally to him, but the difficult part was finding a voice with the richness and depth that made the original so special.
On an autumn night in an East London pub, Blue heard a unique, bluesy voice coming from the basement. He immediately knew he’d found the singer for his version of “Fast Car.‘” That singer was Dakota. The very next day she was in the studio with him to record the song, and the results were just what he had hoped for.
