Hozier stopped by the BBC Live Lounge to perform a cover of Arctic Monkeys' 2013 hit, "Do I Wanna Know?" Hozier changes up the melody a bit, so it actually sounds like a mashup between that song and Berlin's "Take My Breath Away" which was part of the fantastic '80s soundtrack to the movie Top Gun.

Armed with a Harmony H76 electric hollowbody guitar with Bigsby tremolo and three pickups, Hozier plays subtle guitar parts that lock in with his backing band -- drums, bass, cello, and two female backup singers. It's a much lighter version than the Arctic Monkeys original tune, with sweet vocal harmonies during an a cappella outro.

The Irish singer-songwriter's highly anticipated self-titled debut album is due out later this week. For Hozier's latest music, news, and tour dates, check out his Zumic artist page.
