Today, Hozier took over The Colorado Sound, in a recorded session with Margot before his show last Friday at the Bellco Theatre. Hozier has recently come out with his sophomore album Wasteland Baby! – immediately rising to number one upon its release.
The Irish Hozier, the son of a Dublin drummer, surprised some with the subject matter in Wasteland Baby!, after his self-titled debut, Hozier, made his star rise. Talking to NPR ahead of the new album, he said Wasteland Baby!, despite its title, carries more hope than anything; it’s a soul-inflected album through and through.
“What [I’m] still trying to find in the worst case scenario is the warm, still-beating heart of humanity,” Hozier said.
On his takeover, Hozier plays many of the artists that give Wasteland Baby! its soulful flair.
