Hozier Lines Up St David’s Hall Date

IRISH indie rock sensation Hozier returns to St David’s Hall on Tuesday 17 September as part of his eagerly anticipated Wasteland, Baby! tour.

Hozier’s second album Wasteland, Baby! is to be released on Friday 1 March and features the amazing singles Nina Cried Power (featuring iconic soul acts Mavis Staples and Booker T), Movement and Almost (Sweet Music). Not only does Nina Cried Power open the album, but it’s already ready been a global smash with Barack Obama including it in his favourite songs of 2018 playlist!

The Irish singer born Andrew Hozier-Byrne stormed to worldwide wide thanks to his smash-hit single Take Me To Church (originally released as a free download in September 2013), which subsequently sold over 2 million copies and won a prestigious Ivor Novello award. His self-titled debut album was recorded in the attic bedroom of his parents’ home in Bray, County Wicklow, but Hozier quickly broke out of those confines to land slots on Saturday Night Live and duet with Annie Lennox at the Grammys.

Wasteland, Baby! is the critically acclaimed follow-up, which has now amassed an incredible 2 billion streams on Spotify alone. The album has already sold over 850,000 copies in pre-sales in the UK – going platinum in the process – while it’s sold 4.4 million copies worldwide.
