Hozier has been teasing his next studio album for quite some time and he finally made things official. The singer announced the release of Unreal Unearth, his first album in four years, and revealed it would hit the shelves this summer.
Hozier took to social media to share the cover of his new album, which shows his smiling face, buried under the layers of dirt. The singer said his new album will find its way to us “after a journey of some years” on August 18.
“I’m proud of this record and enjoyed watching it come to life over the past year. Thank you as always for your support and patience while it was coming to fruition, it’s my great pleasure to share with you the release date at long last,” he wrote on Instagram.
This announcement comes just two months after the singer dropped his EP Eat Your Young, which featured three songs: “Eat Your Young”, “All Things End”, and “Through Me (The Flood)”. He revealed this EP will be followed by a full album later this summer, and he’s now making good on that promise.
Unreal Unearth will be Hozier’s first studio album in four years, since the release of his sophomore LP Wasteland, Baby! which debuted atop the Billboard 200 chart in 2019.
