Hozier is celebrating St Patrick's Day and his 33rd birthday with the release of his new EP, Eat Your Young, his first new music since his second album Wasteland, Baby! in 2019.
Featuring songs from his new album Unreal Unearth, which is due later this year, Eat Your Young "touches on the album’s exploration of Dante’s Inferno and reflects upon two of the nine circles of hell: gluttony and heresy".

The EP features new songs Eat Your Young, All Things End, and Through Me (The Flood).
"This EP marks my first release of 2023, with a number of songs to drop over the coming months followed by the full album Unreal Unearth in late summer," Hozier says.
"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."

The Wicklow native will play a sold-out show at Malahide Castle in Dublin on June 30 and will give fans a preview of his new music with four live rehearsal shows in Dublin’s Academy on 6, 7, 9 and 11 April.
He has also announced his Unreal Unearth Tour, which includes headline shows at New York City’s Madison Square Garden and The Hollywood Bowl in LA.
Earlier this week, Hozier was at Columbia Records offices in New York to celebrate his global hit Take Me To Church becoming RIAA-certified Diamond.
Ranked the 30th most listened to song on Spotify, the track is the 103rd song to ever achieve the rare milestone of Diamond certification and the highest certified solo Alternative single in RIAA history.
In September 2013, Andrew Hozier-Byrne was a relatively unknown artist when he released Take Me To Church, which he had mostly recorded in the attic of his blues musician and artist parent’s house in Wicklow.
The breakout song rocketed him to international stardom, including number one records on both sides of the Atlantic, multiple awards including a Grammy-nomination, and film and video game soundtracks.
