Hozier has released a new EP ‘Eat Your Young’, and announced a series of UK shows. Check out dates and ticket details below.
The three-track EP sees Hozier celebrate 10 years since the release of his seminal debut single, ‘Take Me To Church’, which was certified six times platinum in the US.
Available now, ‘Eat Your Young’ marks his first release in four years, following his second full-length album, ‘Wasteland, Baby!’, which was released in 2019. The songs featured — ‘Eat Your Young’, ‘All Things End’ and ‘Through Me (The Flood)’ — will also be featured on his upcoming third studio release, ‘Unreal Unearth’.
“This EP marks my first release of 2023, with a number of songs to drop over the coming months followed by the full album,” Hozier said. “It’s always a gift to be able to release new music into the world and an added joy to do so on a Birthday. I’m thrilled to have announced tour dates for this fall and to share these songs, which offer a sample of more to come.”
According to Hozier, the upcoming album will be centred around Dante’s epic poem, Inferno, and explore themes of gluttony and heresy. It is set for release later this year.
Alongside the new EP, Hozier has also announced a series of UK tour dates, which kick off this June. This includes dates at London’s Alexandra Palace Park and Cardiff Castle.
