The moment you’ve been waiting on is finally here. And if you haven’t been waiting on this moment, the moment you should have been waiting on is finally here. On March 1, Hozier is releasing his first full LP in four-and-a-half years and fans of the Irish soulsinger are losing their collective shit.
The announcement of the 14-song sophomore album Wasteland, Baby! came with a video—the pensive musician jots down the tracklist before moving to a room full of his album art, including that of his fall release Nina Cried Power – EP. (Fun fact: Hozier’s mom makes his beautiful album art… save some talent for the rest of us!)
On Wednesday, Hozier released a syncopated single filled with jazz references titled “Almost (Sweet Music),” and I can already hear it being overplayed on Top 40 radio. Until then, let’s enjoy the honey-sweet hook and guitar-stamped beat of the song in its infancy.
