Hozier is planning to drop a new album this summer, and he found a great way to get us excited about its release. He celebrated his birthday by dropping a new EP Eat Your Young, featuring three brand-new songs.
This marks Hozier’s first release of 2023, and he decided to share it with the world on March 17 because this day just happens to mark his 33rd birthday.
“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,” wrote Hozier on Twitter.
The singer also revealed this EP will be followed by a number of songs in the coming months followed by the full album Unreal Unearth in late summer. The singer initially announced its release in late 2021 and went on to drop the single “Swan Upon Leda” to promote it.
Hozier also announced he’s getting ready to embark on the Unreal Earth album tour, set to kick off on June 25 at Glasgow’s Queen’s Park. He’s expected to perform across Europe over the summer, before heading to the US in September and touring all fall long.
