James Bay has gone from opening for Taylor Swift on tour to paying tribute to the singer with a cover of her song “Delicate.”

He performed a stripped-down version of the song for BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge, with just his electric guitar and a drummer as accompaniment. He even mashed it up, adding a little of Drake’s “One Dance” at the end.

During the spot, he explained why he chose to cover “Delicate,” saying, “I’m always looking out for something I can put my own twist [on]. I listened through a lot of different tunes and this one connected with me.”
