Wicklow singer-songwriter Andrew Hozier-Byrne, AKA Hozier, has released his new single From Eden this week.
The single was UK radio DJ Zane Lowe’s “Hottest Record In The World” on BBC Radio 1 last night.
The track is set to feature on Hozier’s second EP — also titled From Eden — which will be released next month.
Hozier shot to fame last year when his breakthrough music video, Take me to Church, went viral, amassing over 1.6 million views on YouTube.
The video, which depicted the violence experienced by gay people in Russia, reached number one on the Irish iTunes singles chart and number two in the official chart on 25 October 2013.
24-year-old Hozier, who is originally from Bray, will be performing at the enormous music festival and showcase South by Southwest in Austin, Texas later this year.
