“Hozier – Hozier” is a self-titled album by Irish singer-songwriter and musician Hozier. The album was released on 28 September 2014 by the Concord Music Group. The album departed from the sound of his previous releases and was not expected to achieve commercial success in the United States, with his label at the time believing that it would be better to release it elsewhere first before sending it to North America.
Hozier – Hozier is a fun, catchy and interesting soundtrack; one that you’ll find yourself singing along with effortlessly from beginning to end…whether you’re feeling like listening or singing along in your car. Hozier – Hozier’s album will be available for digital purchase on the 21 October 2014. Hozier is the brainchild of Andrew Hozier-Byrne, a native of Bray, County Wicklow. He released his debut EP in 2013, which was followed by his self-titled album Irish singer-songwriter and musician Hozier on September 2014. His eponymously titled record hasn’t been an immediate commercial success in North America despite its widespread critical acclaim with fans from around the world. To date, Hozier has released three extended plays, one mixtape and three successful singles – “Take Me to Church”, “Work Song” and his latest single “From Eden”. Catchy lyrics, beautiful melodies and a great guitar is what you can expect from Hozier’s self-titled record.
The album starts with the first track off their self-titled record called ‘Hozier’. It is a very alternative track with a mix of soulful melodies and bluesy vocals that set the tone for the album. The next song on their self-titled record called ‘Angel Of Small Death & The Codeine Scene’ was written in New York City.
