Hozier’s acclaimed Late Late Show rendition of The Parting Glass is soaring up the charts with proceeds going to the ISPCC/Childline.

Hozier sang the ballad when he appeared on The Late Late Show on Friday, March 27, and there has been a phenomenal reaction in the weeks since the performance.

Following the overwhelming response, the Co Wicklow singer decided to release his take on the trad classic as a charity single, with proceeds going to the ISPCC.

Released last Friday (April 17), The Parting Glass is so far the most downloaded song of the week and is on course for a Top 20 debut on the Official Irish Singles Chart, currently at Number 13.

The Parting Glass will become Hozier's 13th Top 50 hit should its momentum continue.
