Hozier recently released a new album called as ‘Wasteland, Baby!’. He has debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in the US with his new album.
The news that Hozier has topped on the Billboard 200 album chart in the US comes as he just begins his North American tour. This tour will run until the middle of next month.

He recently spoke to the RTÉ Entertainment Team and he said:
I think this record, there’s a lot of love songs. I find I would write songs about other things, albeit through the lens of a love song, or through the surface that’s wrapped up in a love song. But I don’t know, some of the songs for me are characterised as a farewell to things, or a worry or a concern of bad and terrible things to come.
He also added, “It tries to hold on to some warm centre or redemptive sort of point of, yes; there are all these terrible things that we can fear or lose and have to say farewell to, but there is still the potential of such kindness and such goodness in people, so much love in people and that’s still there.”
Hozier is returning back to Ireland for shows at Independent Park, Cork on June 25 and at the Belsonic Festival, Belfast on June 27.
