Jordan Bratton wasn’t aware the cameras were still rolling. While taking a break from filming and recording live versions of songs for his Youth EP, the singer-songwriter/producer took to the keys to play the Weeknd's latest single, "Can't Feel My Face."

"It was actually me just messing around at first,” he tells Billboard. "The band took a break and I just started playing ‘Can’t Feel My Face’ on the piano. The cameras kept rolling and the guitarist Brad Allen Williams, started playing along."

Bratton continued to play "in the moment," only to create a powerful, raw version of the Weeknd’s single. Below, check out an exclusive premiere of Jordan Bratton’s live cover of "Can't Feel My Face":

Bratton's six-song Youth EP follows his 2014 The Grey Area mixtape, for which he garnered attention and a label signing with 1009 Records/RCA Records. He's prepping to embark on a 34-city tour with SoMo in the fall.
