Hozier to visit Edinburgh this summer on UK tour

Multi-platinum singer and songwriter Hozier will visit the Usher Hall in Edinburgh this summer on the UK leg to promote second album Wasteland, Baby!

The Take Me To Church hitmaker will conclude his UK tour with four very special shows at the London Palladium.

In an interview with NME, the Irish singer revealed that Wasteland, Baby! was inspired by the darkened state of the world when he began writing the record in 2016.

“It’s trying to look at the warm centre of human kindness and you find that in Wasteland, Baby!,” he explained. “While there’s other songs on there that have doom and gloom and might touch upon it, Wasteland Baby goes straight for it.

“It lets us imagine how the worlds might end in a very real sense. But as long as there’s people, that ‘You and I’, there’s always potential for kindness and that is something to be hopeful about.”

Wasteland, Baby! is released on March 1.
