Hozier reflects on his remarkable journey in the Hot Press cover story.
Hozier has been voted the Artist of the Decade by the readers of Hot Press magazine.
In the new issue of Hot Press, on shelves this Thursday, February 18, the results of our Readers' Poll The Hotties 2020 are revealed. And there is one big winner: the man from Co. Wicklow, who first stormed into the consciousness of fans all over the world with the unforgettable 'Take Me To Church'.
As well as presenting all your favourite tracks, albums and artists of the year that just passed, this special once-a-decade poll marks the end a remarkable ten years in Irish music, with a special interview with our Hot Press Artist Of The Decade: cover star Hozier.
It may have been just seven years since he first catapulted to worldwide acclaim, but there's no denying Hozier's legacy as the defining figure of Irish music over the past ten years. From his world-dominating hits to his inspiring activism, he has carved out a fiery path in modern music – both at home and overseas.
In a powerful and revealing interview, the Co. Wicklow musician sits down to reflect on his astonishing journey so far – from the breakout success of 'Take Me To Church' (voted Track of the Decade in the Hot Press Readers' Poll), to his acclaimed Cry Power Podcast series.
Elsewhere in the interview, Hozier opens up about Bernie Sanders, Michael D. Higgins, transgender rights and the parallels between direct provision in Ireland and the migrant camps at the US-Mexico border.
