Hozier officially announced the release date for his sophomore album and debuted a new song title “Almost (Sweet Music)” today (Jan. 16). Wasteland, Baby! is due March 1.
The singer-songwriter will embark on a U.S. tour, scheduled to kick off on March 10, in support of the 14-track album.
“The album has been over a year in the making, and it’s a pleasure to finally turn out my pockets and share the work,” Hozier said in a press release. “I want to sincerely thank fans and listeners for their continued support in between the records. See you out on the road soon.”
Hozier previously released the track “Movement,” and an accompanying video depicting a man — resembling Hozier’s own appearance of long, brunette locks — expertly dancing as he seems to try to escape from himself.
