Award-winning multi-Platinum singer-songwriter Hozier has today released his new EP Eat Your Young. The three-song EP marks Hozier’s first official offering of new music since his 2019 second album Wasteland, Baby!.Featuring songs lifted from Hozier’s forthcoming full-length album Unreal Unearth due later this year, Eat Your Young touches on the album’s exploration of Dante’s Inferno and reflects upon two of the nine circles of hell: gluttony and heresy.
In speaking about Eat Your Young, Hozier says: “This EP marks my first release of 2023, with a number of songs to drop over the coming months followed by the full album Unreal Unearth in late summer. 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.“To commemorate today’s release as well as his birthday and St. Patrick’s Day, Hozier has also announced a world tour which will include big outdoor UK summer shows, including London’s Alexandra Palace Park and Cardiff Castle. He’ll also be heading into Europe, as well as North America that will include huge shows at New York City’s Madison Square Garden, Denver’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre, and more before concluding at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl on Saturday, 4th November.

www.gigsandtours.com / www.ticketmaster.co.ukIn September 2013, when Irish solo artist Andrew Hozier-Byrne released his debut single – a song called Take Me To Church – which he had mostly recorded in the attic of his parent’s house in Wicklow (his father a blues musician, his mother an artist), little did he know about the hurricane-strength surge in public interest that the song would spark, carrying him to international stardom. A full ten years and billions of streams later, Hozier still calls Wicklow home. While his music takes him all over the world, it is Ireland and its people and places, the weather and landscape; where a stream is still something that runs down at the bottom of the garden, that calls him back to where he feels he naturally belongs. The last decade has brought both public and critical acclaim. Multi-Platinum album sales, an RIAA-certified Diamond single, number one records on both sides of the Atlantic, multiple awards including a GRAMMY-nomination, film and video game soundtracks and countless sold-out live shows all over the world. But as Hozier prepares to release his third album – Unreal Unearth – his passion for his art is undimmed, and his curiosity about our world – and all that is good and bad about it – remains undiminished. Tickets for the new dates go on sale Friday 24th March at 9:30am and will be available from
