Hozier’s new self-titled album is officially dropping on October 7th, but you can check it out right now! This week only, the album is streaming exclusively on iTunes. If you don’t know who Hozier is, you will very soon. A previous chorus singer, this Irish singer mixes his powerful tenor vocals with his love for traditional gospel and old-fashioned blues and the results are just fantastic. Think Sam Smith meets the Black Keys. Hozier has been blowing up and will continue to do so as 2014 slowly winds down. So check out the album this week and be prepared to be amazed!
Also check out his EP, Take Me To Church, on SoundCloud. "Cherry Wine" was even featured in Zach Braff's new film, Wish I Was Here.
