Hozier dropped his newest song “Almost (Sweet Music)” today along with the official announcement of his sophomore album, “Wasteland, Baby!”
It has been four years since Hozier released his last album. The self-titled debut came with hit singles like “Jackie and Wilson” and “Take Me to Church.”
“Almost (Sweet Music)” is the radio-ready pop-influenced single that we would expect from a sophomore album. Something about it remains inherently Hozier, fortunately, with his soulful voice and his hint of indie folk that makes it like nothing else you’ll hear from an alternative artist on the radio.
“I’m thrilled to announce my new album Wasteland, Baby! The album has been over a year in the making and it’s a pleasure to finally turn out my pockets and share the work. I want to sincerely thank fans and listeners for their continued support in between the records. See you out on the road soon,” Hozier writes on his website.
“Wasteland, Baby!” is set to be released March 1, and is the follow up to his four-track long EP, “Nina Cried Power EP” that he released September 2018.
Hozier is set to go on tour this spring. Check out the dates below.
